    Is Cairo that much faster than George?

    How are nice hair and sideburns not factored into OPS? Not fair on the kid. Er, old man.

    Dusty has them just where he wants them.

    His eighth hitting catcher with the high OBP is up now.

    His resting first baseman with the near .500 OBP could hit next.

    Maybe something will happen.

    Anything to quiet down these Pirate TV announcers.

    Yes, much faster than George Grande.

    Necessary? No. But it seems like a solid time to give him a mini-break. This week will keep him fresh for a long time.

    Just to clarify, Costanzo can't hit, field, OR RUN?

    He has a nice tan though.

    Correct.

    But he does seem like a nice fellow.

    Hanigan with a hard fly out to end the inning. 2-1 Pirates heading to the bottom of 7th.
