Holderman does his job with just 14 pitches. Bucs keep their 7-5 lead.

One more thing about Block. Being a homer is one thing, but he takes it to a new level. There's absolutely no criticism of anything the Pirates do poorly. I guess his great call on the Will Craig blunder was his one bright and shining moment.

I wish KY wouldn't let himself get caught up in the nonsense, you can feel he doesn't want to, but gives in because he's not the PBP...if you can call Block by that term, I have no idea what he's talking about half the time.

I know, we have a thread for this. I just wish I could actually follow a game if all I can do is listen to it.
I was in the car when the pregame came on the radio. As soon as I heard Block’s voice, I changed the channel. If it were Game 7 of the World Series, and he was the only guy doing the broadcast, I still wouldn’t listen.

I hope we score about 6 runs, so they don't use Bednar and I can possibly see him come out tomorrow to me, Mister Man, and 5,000 other screaming fans.

Then again, it's dollar dog day, so the cheap food might bring a bigger crowd. This will be my third one this season, and it wasn't done intentionally. In fact, it's pretty tough, because so many subhumans put KETCHUP on a hot dog :mrgreen:

Priester looked good until he didn't. Ended up with 4 ERs in 4 IP. But at least his 9.09 ERA is better than John Van Benschoten's 9.20. So there's that.

I used Mister Yuck emoji. The guy who created Mr. Yuck just died recently at 83. We were wondering at the VFW if he was poisoned.

Joe Block was still impressed though!

Rivas is Suwinski light. Stands there like a statue striking out with pitches right down the middle, but he doesn't have 24 HR's

Renegade time. Let's hope it's the All Star one, not the nail biter one.
