About the only remaining suspense tonight is whether the Pirates will get no-hit.

This stretch of games has me as disappointed as I have been at any time this season, even back in April and May. They do not have the look of a contending team at the moment.

Burnett probably was due for a bad game. But if he can't stop the bleeding, who can?

What this team needs is a good old-fashioned Leylandesque postgame ass-reaming, complete with knocking over the food table. I know that's generally not Hurdle's style, but dear God is it warranted here.

Yeah, maybe the embarrassment of getting no-hit in the middle of a pennant race would have been some motivation. But losing with MacDonald and Burnett back to back means some wheels have come off the bus...
