3) Cueto needs to look at video. He always leaves his pitches up in the zone when he is falling towards the 1st base side of the mound after delivering pitches!! where is Dick Pole?? isnt he the pitching coach???
4) after the 3rd walk to load the bases, Dusty lets Lincoln stay in the game and give up not one but TWO homers!!
5) the team looks like they are always going to be behind. no calmness and no focus!!!(Coaching) like the Pirates look. The Pirates look more unbeatable
I see the Pirates MORE a surprise team this season than the Reds right now!!!
Come on now... we're all frustrated. But you don't know who's saying what to Taveras, Bruce, Cueto, etc. And why would Dusty put anyone else in there but Lincoln? The pen has been busy this week, and it wasn't exactly a one run game at that point. With the way the offense was swinging the bats, the game was pretty much over. Might as well leave Lincoln in and not burn out any other arms in case we need them tomorrow.
And the Pirates will be lucky to win 70 games this year my friend.
