    Thompson struggling already. 1-0 Pirates with nobody out.

    I've grown to really hate the Pirates.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Maybe one of these days Paul Bako will realize that all major league hitters can hit a fastball? Especially when you call for it all the time? How about mixing in a breaking ball?

    Thompson's having a Dumatrait-looking start.

    Nady with the Pirates' 4th straight hit to lead off the game. The thing is, with the exception of McLouth who hit the first pitch, Thompson's gotten ahead (usually 0-2) on every single batter.

    Dick Pole's visit to the mound seems to have really helped.

    Thompson doesn't have the regular zip or movement on his fastball tonight. It doesn't help when that's basically the only pitch he's throwing too.

    Looks like a long night. It's already 2-0 and maybe more runs to come. Plus the Reds are facing a rookie with an 8.00+ ERA so that's a guaranteed shutout by the Pirates.

    Except for when Dumatrait starts against the Reds

    So in a few years when Thompson is starting against Cincy, will he shut them out for 6-7 innings, too?
    Never overlook the obvious

    Something like that always comes to my mind when we see the young guys who are having their pitches called from the bench or by the catcher, if a bad night, is it the pitcher or another reason.

    4-0 Pirates after 1/2 inning.

    Thompson doesn't have much tonight. Mixing his pitches up better couldn't hurt though.
