I agree. Putting a .132 hitter in the 3 hole is a rally killer.

I was hoping they'd win 1 of the 2 Mexico games, so a win today would be icing on the cake. I'm a little worried about Disco giving up home runs, but I have a good feeling about this nonetheless.

This is such a weird thing to just toss out there as if you’re 100% correct. All available audio from that altercation backs up Hughes. I don’t doubt Phillips believes he heard the word “boy,” but that doesn’t mean it happened, and it’s such strange drum to beat over and over again.

Tom Servo

Well, problematic start. Walk to Carpenter and a double up the middle by Goldschmidt.

Carpenter cut down between third and home!

If you're white and stare down a black man and call him "boy" you know what you're doing...

Um, yeah, I’d say you’re right about that. Doesn’t mean it ever happened re Hughes / Phillips. All available evidence says otherwise.


Luckily for Hughes, the Pirates TV broadcast from the confrontation in Monday night’s game appears to back Hughes. While it’s clear Hughes swore at Phillips as Phillips flipped the ball in his direction after being hit by a Hughes pitch, the tape does not suggest Hughes used the word “boy,’’ as Phillips claims.

The tape suggests Hughes said, “Hey man, throw the (bleeping) ball back to the dugout, (blankety-blank). Hughes, who is known to teammates as a fun-loving, down-to-earth guy who does some fire-breathing on the mound (he’s one of the relievers who runs in from the bullpen), admitted to swearing at Phillips. But Hughes said the setting was “very loud’’ and isn’t even sure what Phillips said to him after Phillips was hit by his pitch.

https://www.google.com/amp/s/www.cbssports.com/mlb/news/pirates-reliever-jared-hughes-on-brandon-phillips-racism-claim-thats-not-who-i-am/amp/

But sure, let’s just knee-jerk assume he’s one of the worst things a human can be.

Winker is a modern-day Hal Morris (whose power stroke was also the opposite way to LF and LCF).

And before anyone says that he has more power than Hal, I think that Morris would have more power in today's baseball environment than he had in the 90's.

Winker is a modern-day Hal Morris (whose power stroke was also the opposite way to LF and LCF).

And before anyone says that he has more power than Hal, I think that Morris would have more power in today's baseball environment than he had in the 90's.

Winker has figured something out with that outside pitch. Four homers over the left field fence. Maybe he’s stronger this year, maybe coaching, or both.

Lorenzen works the pitcher better than most of the lineup today then Da Wink Goes BOOM!!!Tie Ballgame

I have seen good-hitting pitchers before. (Micah Owings, Dontrelle Willis, Mike Leake, and Bronson Arroyo to name a few.) But Lorenzen is a different animal. He actually has true hitting skills, and I think he could stick as a position player-level bat.

I don't know. Even acknowledging your point, I think Winker puts more drive in the ball than Morris. I'd say Mark Grace is a closer comparison, but granted, they're all similar

Artificial turf (once commonplace in the NL) is virtually a foreign substance to National League players in today's game. Only two MLB clubs have artificial turf fields, and both are in the AL. (Tampa Bay and Toronto)

Back in 1990, half the NL had artificial turf. (Cincinnati, Houston, St. Louis, Montreal, Pittsburgh, and Philadelphia)

Bell has a quick hook. He doesnít leave guys in for the additional inning. True with starters and relievers. Lorenzen was coming out of the game at that point.
