Game 8: Pirates at Giants

2011 Bunting Champion Charlie Morton returns to face Barry Zito.

Half of the Bucs starting position players have batting averages lower than Coonelly's BAC (after a holiday party).

Game 7: Pirates at Giants

Pirates down 2-0 in the sixth.

Had to unplug the win meter. Something's not right with it.

The early start will leave extra time after the game for re-enacting the bunt-off win on the lawn outside the beer fort.

HW 2012 Readers' Poll

A few days late with this, and the Bucs are already on pace to bunt to 108 wins, but it's time to prognosticate:

1. How many Bucco wins?
2. Most bunts?
3. Other predictions?

I'll start:
1. 83 wins. Finally.
2. Morton, again.
3. Bucs clinch wild-card same day Cutch bunts for the cycle.

Game 3: Phillies at Pirates

Worley and McDonald at one thirty.

I did an LED upgrade on the win meter. Now it's even prettier.
