Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Latos and Liriano in a little bit.
We are deep-frying a turkey in the pot of boiling oil we keep above the beer fort portcullis. Still heavily entertained from last night's action. Ready for more.

Hurdle ejected? What did I just miss?
Barmas makes that play, Travis? Iowa Pirate
Barmas sadly does make that play as Mercer tried to imitate Barmes' making routine plays look difficult.However, he butchered the routine play.Earlier in the game, Mercer turns 2 that Barmes doesn't, but that last play was etrocious.BTW I throw right at Joey Votto the next game, I don't care what the score is or the situation.Watson with an unbelievable play.
Time to pick up a bus and throw it into the river.
Wow, close only counts in horseshoes and hand grenades.
That one is going to leave a mark.
I think the ending of that game hit a nerve in me that had been laying dormant for, ah, seems about 21 years now. Yeah, I still don't like the way that feels. I guess I'll take it as progress that I can still be emotionally scarred by a baseball game on September 20.
I wish I could "shower well"
what a kick in the nuts that was.
