I think we have a good enough team to make a WS run without depleting our farm system. Let's skip Lester and see how we do with the team we have.

I say Worley keeps his job. He's been awesome just about every start.

This was a good weekend and I like where the Bucs are sitting. Unfortunately, their record against good teams may come back to haunt them.  We have a stretch of games where we bounce back and forth between good and bad teams and then close out the season with a long stretch against mostly NL Central foes. If we go 4-3 every 7 games until the end of the season, we'll end up with 88 wins. Probably won't be good enough. We need to start taking a couple more from the good teams and continue to beat up the bad teams.

God I hope he's a career Pirate. I'd chip in to his salary to see him stay forever!

And this is why you always stay until the end of the game!

OMG. Fuck the DH. I'd like an AL team if I thought the DH was a good thing.

Wish I were in the stands to catch that ball. It's gonna be worth something.

After their next series which is against Miami, the Bucs play 19 straight games against sub .500 clubs. Going at least 12-7 in that stretch would be awesome and then at which point we should hopefully get Cole back.


I'm cautious but I'm not pessimistic about our chances right now. I still see great things for 2014.

This should have been a win. 29-30 is a helluva lot better than 28-31 at this point. Oh well...that's Pittsburgh baseball.

I was at the game(s) yesterday (could only stay for the first half of the double header). Trust me...the way they played made me never want to watch them play again........

So is this a good deal? Looks like he had one good year but his average still wasn't that great. To be honest, I thought the Sanchez/Ishikawa platoon has been working so far.

A little frustrating a times when we couldn't score but a win is a win. Hope we are rested enough for a 12:35 game today o.O

@mwr505 Even if he's the #5 starter I think we have a real solid rotation this year. Cole will likely be even better than last year. If Liriano and Morton keep up the trend they're on and Wandy has a solid comeback then we'll be just fine.

John Buck's a stud on that list. He only needed 4 pitches to get 3 hits, too!

It's becoming laughable how many come from behind victories we're getting.

@lee1943 Cutch should have swung at the 4th ball (the intentional ball) to get a 3-1 count. That would have given them something to think about whether they wanted to pitch to him for real or not. I wonder if they would have still intentionally walked him with a 3-1 count.
