Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Good to see Jerry Meals replaced with Jerry Layne.
Cole rescues a RISP hostage!
TBS announcer just called AFM "Lawrence McCutchen".
Bucs look well-showered.
Reds fire Dusty Baker.
Wow, Lawrence Alvarez crushed that. Lynn's gonna fall apart now, Burnett style.
Sits on the bee!
Home Runs. We like them.
Wow, GFC is dealing. Nice change from AJFB yesterday.
Zagurski with the nice play at 1B. Announcers saying when Neil Walker met Sid Bream, he said "Thanks for ruining my childhood."
Zagurski powerless against the defensive shift.
Rout is on.
Just got home from on the road and had to hear the Outfield Wall Assault on the radio.Greg Brown's calls were rather entertaining.GFC's locked and loaded both at the plate and on the mound it would appear.
Walkie very entertained by GFC also today.
Does Molina wear eye shadow?
His is a Gold Lame' Glove Drag Queen fo sho.
Shoulda pinch-hit for Morneau vs. LOOGY there.
I concur, with no other Bullpen guy warming up.I replace the Island of Dr. Morneau with the Florida Peninsula of Gaby Sanchez.Hurdle loves to agitate me with his poor game Generalship.
GFC just getting warmed up.
Please no Bryan Morris.
If Hurdle brings in Bryan Morris, I will report him to my Primary Care Physician as a major source of stress.
GFC thinks Beltran, Holliday, and the Cards fans need to STFD.
I keep GFC in the game, which means Leyland probably gives him the hook...
Getting jolly in the beer fort.
Entertained by Byrd pop-up double.
Mercer licking his chops on deck...
Can never have too many runs against these guys. Runner on third one out, Martin needs to rescue the RISP hostage.
Russell goes about his business in the right way.
Whoa, Mercer mashes LHP, but I think we got a call.
Leyland gives GFC the hook after he hits 100mph, brilliant, with 85 pitches.
I'm fine with pulling GFC there - wouldn't want him to hit with Mercer on first. Also need to keep the kid fresh for the World Series.
Descalsoed? - NOT!
Watson Descalsos Descalso! Six more outs.
Martay Insurance Run Partay!!!
Marte climbs to the top of the rampart and launches a volley.
Costas arguing that people LIKE Dusty Baker. Can't stand either idiot.
Cards fans waving white flags. C'mon Grilli, three outs please.
Whoa, Grilli bringin the heat and looking very sharp.
STFD Holliday and watch the Umpshow.
Grilli regaining form bodes very very well for the World Series.It removes more of the Leyland quotient.
NBD, charity for the local kid.
Cutch whiffs on Zagurski drive. Two outs, please.
STFD Molina and watch the Umpshow.
Grilli looks good.
STFDSTFDSTFD! Raise it! Bring it back home to beat these mf-ers!
Huge playoff win right there.
I will celebrate now with a huge beer.
Celebration, well underway here.
Trying to figure out which pictures to do up for the Beer Fort wall here.
Costas should take some of Scully's memory pills. Calling Cutch "Lawrence McCutchen" in the early innings--obscure Rams football reference. Sheesh over here. Cole 45 smokin' Holliday with high heat was an awesome sight. Take your cheap opposite field bingles and STFD and watch the umpshow.
beer fort black out on Sunday!
