    We've come a long way from the center field scoreboard clapping hands, haven't we?

    You want to see some mind numbingly follow the leader stuff, go to a Buckeyes football game at the Shoe. I like some tradition, but holy cow, its worse than the pomp and circumstance at a Saturday evening Mass.

    My cousin and I used to try and clap our hands like the video. The hands were backwards, or the thumbs on the wrong sides, something like that.

    Ah, yes, the precursor to paying for Coco to close, and the many debates to follow.

    Lord yes... pitching shortage generates more strife than anything and the past teams proved that theory true

    I still see that Pujols homer off Weathers sometimes when I close my eyes. It's a frightening recollection.

    Coco may have driven me to drink a lot with his crazy saves but more often than not having him sure stabilized the heck out of that bullpen.

    Pirates threatening again with bases loaded, no outs.

    Now 2-0. Burnett with a perfect first three innings, 5Ks.

    Bucs still with men on base, rallying.

    Not good so far.

    Ugh, what the heck happened to Texas?! I thought they were supposed to be a good team. We can't count on them for anything this week.

    The good thing is the Reds will have plenty of chances to catch the Pirates on their own. Need some help with St. Louis though...
