Re: 2009 Pittsburgh Pirates Season Thread
Man... I have been slacking lately.
The Buccos are playing some amazing ball right now.
Hopefully they can keep the momentum going today and not fall into a habit of sh*tting the bed after a huge offensive game.
The offense is either up or down, but I have been very pleased with the extra base hits this season. 6 doubles yesterday and 3 triples in the series. It seems like they keep coming from the same guys (Sanchez, Doumit, and LaRoche the Younger today), but bases are bases and runs are runs. As long as those guys are eventually crossing the plate... I'm cool.
And, Monroe... keep beastin' on pitchers... OK? 6 RBI.
LAROCHE WATCH: LaRoche the Younger has gone 4-6 with 2 2B, 2 RBI, and a base on balls. LaRoche the Elder has been having some... dare I say... emotional issues against his old team (...that was mean). I only remember one of his two strike-outs, and it was ugly. Team LaRoche has turned a little brother-big brother double play in both games.
Mad props to Steel-Bryan for the Bucco sig.
