Cueto should bury these guys.

Positive numbers of Frazier, Heisey and Ludwick simply carry zero weight with Dusty.....negative numbers of those 3 carry triple weight.

Negative numbers of Stubbs, Rolen, Bruce, Cozart, Phillips are never weighed.

Do the Pirates play any good teams? These guys are running so +EV so far this year. How soft can their schedule get? And they avoid Lincecum who has found his game a little.

Past month they have played 3 legit teams, actually 2 (I don't consider the Cards legit, some of you may) 2 legit teams! Reds & Orioles. What did they go in those games? 1-5. God their schedule is soft. Glad to see their last 10 games of the season are against the Mets, Reds, & Braves. If they are neck and neck with us down the stretch we'll see how ****ing good the Pirates are then. They are cleaning house against their soft schedule. Won't have that luxury down the stretch where the men separate from the boys.

The Pirates remind me of the 99 Reds so far. Retreads having a career year coupled with a good young player having a career year. I think they will end up with the same fate.

We avoided Lincecum this past time. We avoid Strasburg twice....avoided Kershaw, avoid Johan and Dickey. Played Dodgers without Kemp and Ethier. Played Braves without Chipper and McCann.

Schedule tougher but we've been fortunate catching teams like that.

Gotta play good ball. If we don't make the playoffs because the Pirates beat us out....then we don't deserve to be in the playoffs.

Oh I wasn't saying we haven't had our breaks, every team has. I clearly remember avoiding Stras a few times, I just decided today to look deeper into why the Pirates are where they are. Hey you beat who they put in front of you, but like I said if it's close down the stretch I love our chances considering they play 3 legit teams back to back to back for the first time all year. Reds just need to put themselves in the proper position for the final push once we get into the 2nd half and we'll be completely fine. Believe that 100%

Wake up and smell the coffee. Is that Lorenzo cain out there? Are you kidding me?

Good call.....but Cain was going almost full speed. Maybin had the chance to slow down and time it....still hitting the wall pretty hard.

But IMO Nyjer doesn't catch the ball Maybin did (much shorter couldn't reach)....but Maybin doesn't catch the ball Nyjer did.

The Lorenzo Cain catch was better than both.
