3-0 count against a struggling pitcher and Lawrie gets the green light? what the **** is Gibbons doing? This is exactly the kind of **** that keeps happening. Let the pitcher settle in now and cruise after a 28 pitch inning. If I'm Gibbons I'm telling Lawrie to take two in a row.
If Francisco can give us average D at 3rd, with Lind at DH and Lawrie at 2nd this line up will be tough. With the SWH'ers and the lefty righty all down the order, makes other teams have to use up there BP in close games!
Nice to see Cabrera back as well!
Good inning for Morrow but got to get the pitch count down or he'll be done after 5, if he makes it that far!
Inning should be over.
Morrows gased already.
I see Buehrle, Dickey, Hutch, Stroman and Sanchez as our starting 5 in 2015. Morrows contract is up and I guess the team will decide if they pick up his 10m CO. But, unless AA finds us a couple of arms that can get us to the 6th, the only way this team is even close is with the bats.
Rasmus is heating up.....
Morrows lucky the double play is bailing him out all game. Pirates are just hammering him. first pitch too. like make the adjustment already morrow you ****ing bum.
Interesting that Francisco and Alvarez are the same size and Francisco's defensive numbers are actually better than those of Alvarez over the last 2 years. We could do worse and it seems to work for the Pirates to get his bat in the line up!
He has good stuff but he seems to have problems putting people away.
Forget Stroman for McGowan, just as well bring him up for Morrow. At least McGowan earned his next start and Morrow is still trying to get it and likely seen the best of Morrow already. There's only so long Pat can talk about Morrows potential based on that 1, 1 hit , 17 strike out game in Seattle so long ago I've forgot all about it!
Alright santos has gotta go. What's the point of striking out mccutheon if you're just going to give up the tying two run shot to the next batter? **** me.
Lol what the **** is this ****. Back to back to lose the game. Lmao.
