A Home For Pittsburgh Pirates Fans. It is the PBC Asylum.
7 strong innings.
Luckily G4 is back to close this one out
Nice inning for Josh!
Harrison looks slick at 3rd to me.
I was there Monday and he struggled a little. Much better tonight.
Yeah, the blog has been praying for that to happen.
It's amazing what a little practice can do.
Didn't look slick the last two nights.
He's coming around. Great sign for us.
he had a bad throw on a nice pickup and had a bad bounce get by him.
Would you bring Liriano back next year?
What's a Brent Morel? I'm sure he's a nice fellah but shouldn't he be in the stands drinking some beer?
Morel, G4s pick to click.
A fancy mushroom
Yes, this is his bad year next year will be a good on.
I saw that but couldn't make it work in a joke fast enough. Good work PJ!!!
Morel - future HOFer?
HE GOT A HIT!!!!
THERE IS FUNGUS AMONG US!
Is that his first ever hit? I never even heard of this guy. Good for him.
Everything G4 touches turns to gold
They should try to sign him for two more, but not so likely to happen. QO an option.
Played for the white sox for awhile.
Depends on how he does the next 2 months. But, if he returns to last year's form he will most likely test the FA market. He's making $6 mil this season. He could probably get a multi-year deal from somebody if he returns to form. Bucs will probably be outbid.
Seriously, did I miss something? Where did Morel come from? How long has he been with the team?
Hardly, has over 140 MLB hits
Is that a 'played for the white sox for a while' or a 'dummy don't you know who this pretty famous guy is'?
Liriano to 7 day DL - Mushroom brought up.
BIFF...will Morel inspire some new steak and shroom concoction for you? I mean, it's not a vegetable...:-)
Hmm. Don't log on in the afternoon and you miss a lot. Is someone new on the DL?
Who is gone?
He played for the Chisox a couple years ago. Glad to see he got a hit. He is merely a stop gap solution. His defense looks good as compared to Peedro.
I'm kind of hoping they do.
Liriano? Didn't he just pitch the last inning?
Marte to 7 day DL
Picked him up on waivers from Toronto in February, Has been in Indy all season
D'oh. One of the announces said Lirianop as I was typing and that's what I typed!Marte to DL!
No, not at all. Career minor leaguer basically.
Paulie not so hot tonight. Another run would be nice.
I'll have to give it some thought.
Snider needs to get the piano off his back.
That sucks! Hope that doesn't affect his trade value to the Mariners.
He uses it for cardio.
Maholm threw that one right down the pipe!
You see the catch pound his mit after Cutch launched that?
Have to pick up dinner. Hopefully back before it ends.
Just trying to be clever. No offense taken.
red wine reduction with some herbs and a truffle oil/butter... shrooms...and the roasted garlic and bleu cheese mashed potatoes to go with...
3 runs scored by Snider so far tonight
Grab me a beer while you're out.
Really wish ROOT wouldn't have cut to commercial so we could see the reaction Wilson gets entering the game.
Not bad for an old ballplayer.
NH is smiling.
Also, Morel was up up briefly in May and got 1 AB, made an out
youngest of 11 kids...seven sisters... had to learn to cook for myself after all the late nights on the ball fields and out in the streets....
Lot of things I wish ROOT wouldn't do.
Did he just accidentally put Puig in the hospital?
Maholm looks like he is washed up
Wilson still drives me crazy but I am now a fan after last night. Evening mates by the way.
Then he suddenly finds the inside stripe. Go figure.
That sure looked like a scouting report AB.
Are we reviewing the play at first base?
For some reason???
Is there an echo in here?
How did they get their 6th run?
Cutch double, Snider scored
Whatever you do Justin... no inside FB on the hands to this fellow. That didn't work out so well the other night.
Get Wilson out.
Wilson drives me crazy....
This isn't trending well....
Guess Ray straightened him out.
so much for not trending well
Got out of it..Mid 8..6-1 Good Guys
Coaching visit to the mound...Thanks for making a nice easy game into a regular two alarm fire... appreciate that Justin... he's a lefty... back to the inside stripe.
OK, re that review, I thought force plays weren't reviewable? If they are, they shouldn't be. Umps go with sound of when the ball hits the glove + sight of when the hand touches the bag. I think you're more likely to screw it up by taking sound out of the equation.
It's still 1-0 TB, in StL ...Top 7
1 on...no outs. Martin singles
Think BFFL is pestering the counter girl at the take-out place for additional free bread?
extra olive oil
Extra lobster.I don't know where he went... but that's what I'd ask for.
Go for the gusto
My new line for lunch meetings when they ask if I have any dietary restrictions. "Yes, I only eat steak tips and lobster tails"
Extra Arby's sauce.
If you ask for bread you'll be lucky to get saltines. Ask for lobster... you get two packs of saltines. Winning.
How did it get through 3 guys on that side
5 outta 6 aint bad after the break, eh?
But you get no bread with 1 meatball
Does everyone at McDonalds laugh?
Well, there was some doubt about it but it seems to have worked out ok.
I'm here. Has Marty been here tonight?
Without Cole in the rotation.
He'll be thrilled, he just didn't wanna be swept
Ray with another run, now up 2-0 in 7th
Lurch finally shuts 'em down. Now onto Colorado to beat up on the Rockies!!
RAISE IT !!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Just left my seat at PNC... Nice stress free win
BEAT 'EM BUCS 7 OVER 500!!!!!
Big lift from Frankie!!!!!
BFFL GOT SOME EXTRA BREAD AND THE PIRATES TOOK 2 OUTTA 3 FROM THE VAUNTED DODGERS AND THERE WAS NOOOOOO DOUBT ABOUT IT!!!
I believe - we will win the Central!
Happy for Travis- that he had a good game.
He's here instead of Tabby because he looks like he cares!!!
Keep the throttle wide open going into Colorado. Foot to their throats.
caring and a smile gets you not very far...production Doc... production is why he's here...
I think that's exactly the case
Tabby's .455 OPS in Indy doesn't cut it
Nor did his .821 OPS last year in the big leagues. You're forgetting his production for this team last year.
Post game Threadhttp://pbc-asylum.blogspot.com/2014/07/pirates-6-dodgers-1.html
Last year doesn't pay the butcher this year
How many game plan do you have and do you sit up near Marty?
Tabby's in the doghouse, big time.
He doesn't care.. It's a 5 bedroom 3.5 bath..
