Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Wainwright and Morton tonight at 8:15 with the playoffs on the line.
And so began the Andrew Lambo Era.
I am in the middle of the English countryside and will be trying to follow on ESPN gamecast throughout the wee hours as it is already 19:39 over here. I was forced to go skeet shooting today and hit only 2 of 24 clays, thus embarassing my gun-toting country. 2 for 24 is Inge-like, is it not? Please don't cut me.
Annie Oakley and Bickle are not impressed. Iowa Pirate
Oppo for Cutch-o -Seaks
Yackity sax with Spike chasing Hills Angels is what I picture

I'm really glad that by playing NO DOUBLES in the infield they have given up 2 singles as a result in the 8th.I really hope since Nate 2.0 was sent packing again that Lambo gets a chance to lambast some balls with a long series of starts.If he goes 0 for 8 and then gets benched for Nobata, it will be very unentertaining.
WOW, moving Walker to shallow RF to make the leaping line drive catch, very entertained.
WOW, the third most exciting play in all of baseball, the DEFENSIVE SHIFT in all its glory. Pinch-hitting JHay for Lambo, then putting JHay's weak arm in RF could have cost them the game after Marte's unfricking believable brain freeze. Lambo rescued none of the RISP hostages, but has a chance to sneak into the tree stand or steal a sign on the bench.
Marte atones about 1% with a nice bunt. On the bright side, the DROP extends the game for more bunting practice.
Lambo might have sniped Holliday's leg there. But for chrissakes, we're gonna get bunted to death?
Cutch runs into LF to make the catch for Marte after Mazzaro goes about his business the right way.
I went to First Blood on a double date in high school with Denise Russell, I really wanted her to be my girlfriend but she didn't see it that way. Lambo stuff is fun but opens a painful memory. Turns out she was way better off without me. Story has a happy ending. Iowa Pirate
Can Denise play RF?
She was fit, that's all I can say. Iowa Pirate
J Hay going about his business in the 2B/3B/RF/RP/5thINF role in the right way.DEFENSIVE SHIFTS can overcome unfricking believable brain freezes apparently.

Wow, Hurdle loading the bases - are you not entertained?
Don't want to walk and talk about Jeanmar, just want to see his face.
This loss sends me deeper into the hills. Hastily rigged beer fort is actually cider fort with wooden wheels and catapult arm. Mud shall not stop us. Seeking William Wallace to aide and abet Lambo for purposes of killing Cardinal. Communiques spotty for a few days...
