    We should be kind to Blass. He lost his mind when Bob Moose threw a wild pitch.

    When your team has not won a World Series since 1979 you would complain about the nacho cheese dip not being hot enough.

    I was at the game. Leake acknowledged to McCut... It was not intentional. It got away from Leake. That was obvious to everyone.

    Well, the Pirates have a program that you can "Ask Teke"

    Here is how it works:
    ROOT SPORTSTM ASK TEKE
    Kent Tekulve, former MLB right-handed Relief Pitcher for the Pittsburgh Pirates, joins ROOT SPORTSTM following every Pirates telecast as an Analyst for the Postgame Show.

    Teke, known as a workhorse relief pitcher, who holds several records for number of games & innings pitched, is ready with our team of experts to answer your questions about the Bucs and break down key plays from the game.

    Do you have a question that you would like Kent Tekulve to answer? Text your Pittsburgh Pirates and Baseball questions to ASK TEKE. Your question could be answered LIVE during the Pirates Postgame ASK TEKE segment after every game on ROOT SPORTSTM .

    To submit your question, text TEKE followed by your question & name to 412412.

    No Purchase Necessary or Charge to Text Your Question to ROOT SPORTSTM ASK TEKE.
    *Message and Data Rates May Apply.
    Your carrier's standard messaging and data rates apply to all SMS correspondence. Other charges may apply. Available on participating carriers. To end this service, text "STOP" to 412412.
    I think we should all send questions to him tonight that go along the lines of "Is it true the Bucs lead the NL in hit batsmen?" or "Did the Pirates really hit 5 Reds players during the last series?"

    We can at least let them know that there is another side to the issue than what Walk says...

    Ya, I wasn't really bringing it up to complain about our guys getting hit. It happens. That particular inning stood out though because Phillips got hurt and then 2 batters later we had 2nd and 3rd, 2 outs in a spot where Frazier would normally be walked or pitched around instead they threw right at him. Regardless of what has or hasn't happened by either team prior or since, that inning was as bad as we've faced all year. I certainly thought of it immediately when I saw the pitches in last night's game.

    I like Matt Cooke and think that the Bruins have a knack for bringing out the Penguins' dormant sociopaths, but I guess that's for another thread.

    And IABucFan, I definitely wasn't talking about you. Much moreso Buccos' announcers and a general fan mentality right now.
    Ahh...I see. Cool.

    I think he should be locked in a room with all the players whose careers he's tried to end over the years (it would need to be a big room), but you're right that's for another thread.

    There is no such thing as a pitching prospect.

    Well, they did injure our clean up hitter/All Star second baseman. They seem to conveniently forget about that. Imagine the reaction if Latos injured McCutchen and cost him a few games.

    I love the reputation Reds pitching has.

    If anything I think we owe them a couple. I like having Latos on the mound against the Pirates, because I know they'll likely throw at our guys and Latos will bring it right back at them.
