Game 87: Pirates at Brewers

Correia and Estrada at seven.

A lot of hand-wringing about last night's bloodbath, but any team will lose a game like that, here and there, so there are no worries in the beer fort.

Prepare to untuck.

Game 86: Pirates at Brewers

McDonald vs. Greinke tonight, if Zack can avoid getting ejected.

The Bucs are only one game up, so to stay in first place and continue their first half momentum, they really need to win this game.

All-Star break

All but two of the Bucs rest while Cutch assures home-field advantage for the Bucs in the World Series. Then Hairyhands will probably try to give it away.

The Home Run Derby would be more entertaining if it was just one of many contests of baseball prowess. Like a bunting contest (or marathon). And synchronized defensive shifts involving whole infields and/or outfields, set to music.

Game 85: Giants at Pirates

Burnett vs. the Freak today.

Despite the calming influence of Vogelsong, the Freak Whisperer, Timmy has been a wreck this year. Bucs need a win to carry momentum and sole possession of first place into the All-Star break.
