    Glad to see Frazier back in there. And, even if he goes 0 for 4, thrilled to see BHam in. Just seems like the better decision to me; certainly relative to Robinson.. Would have liked to see Mesoraco back behind the plate too. And, not excited about Heisey in for Ludwick. Maybe something's going on with Meso I missed since at the game last night?

    If last night was playing with one hand behind our back, this one feels like that hand is maybe now in a front pocket...or some imperfect analogy like that but probably makes some sense?

    The Pirates are a very good team. Feels like we should be pulling out more stops to at least be serious about getting the WC1 spot if not making a serious division play. Don't these guys realize we hoofed it all the way from DC here for this series? Surely they can win at least one for us between Sat and Sun?

    I know they like to give Ludwick day off on day games but this one I don't get. But go Bham!

    Dusty's answer will be two-fold. Everyone is going to get some AB and Heisey needs some AB and with Bronson pitching he's prone to more fly balls and Heisey is the better LF.

    It's a logical answer. Given the particular context, doesn't seem like a very good answer though.

    Choo's dinged up and Ludwick probably needs a rest...why the hate for this lineup?

    Don't hate it. Just would like to see Ludwick. Especially since Heisey is 0 for his last 20.

    To be fair to Heisey, he's hit lefties well this year, high SLG against them. Huge gap in OPS for Heisey good against lefties, not against righties. .815 OPS v. lefties, .592 against righties.

    You'd think Ludwick would play today but it's not that big a deal, hopefully Heisey gets an extra base hit or two.

    It was a foregone conclusion the second Baker penciled in Ludwick, instead of Paul, against Burnett.

    Paul should have been in yesterday for Ludwick...I agree.


    I also need to ask why does TBS have a contract with MLB when they are the Yankee, Red Sox station? This game is on but we get SF at NYY....because the Yankees are barely in a race for a 2nd WC?

    This is all this station shows. Biggest piece of garbage, and I thought Chip and Skip were bad enough.
