Game 154: Pirates at Mets

Looking around the league, I see Jeff Keppinger homering in a meaningful baseball game. About eight years ago, the Pirates traded that guy with a damn good bunter for Jose Bautista and Ty Wigginton. Other former Pirates, now playing meaningful baseball: Ryan Vogelsong, Frodo McLouth, and the Prison Baller, Brandon Moss. The last two players have been en fuego as their teams push for a Wild Card berth.

Best of luck to these gentlemen.

Game 153: Pirates at Mets

Huntington explains the Pirates lose because too many have gone into "Survivor" mode. I am curious which players, exactly, are guilty of not bunting runners over when ordered to do so.

Sounds like Lord of the Flies in the clubhouse. That might explain the Eagle I mean Boy Scout training regime.

NFL week 3: Steelers at Raiders

Steelers up 14-7 in the second quarter with the Raiders driving.

Game 152: Pirates at Astros

I think I saw Hurdle last night, day-dreaming away in a Hippie sweat lodge. Look for new, creative defensive shifts from the brotherhood.

Doesn't matter who the pitchers are. Game on pretty soon.
