10 to 1 he gives partial credit to Locke's left handedness for Cole and AJ's success if pressed for reasons Locke is still in the rotation.

There is no objective way to explain how that would make any sense, so I could definitely picture Hurdle saying it. I've never made a point of hearing or reading about his interviews, but this year I've actively avoided it.

The Pirates get their first baserunner in the third inning, which I guess is the sort of thing that can happen when you bat the team's on-base leader 7th.

Well, it's the same reason why he wants both lefties and righties in the rotation. That's the old book. If you want to give the other team different looks. So you keep Locke in the rotation if you have to just because he's a lefty. I would bet anything that's what he is thinking.

First and second with no outs is the most advantageous situation for a sacrifice. It still reduces the run expectancy for the inning, but it does at least increase the chances of scoring a run.

The odds of scoring at least one when there are runners on 2nd and 3rd with one out: 70%.

Expected runs in such an inning: 1.447.

If they startup before 9:30 I'll be shocked.

Should have kept the rain delay going a bit longer.

This jobber is shutting us down completely tonight. Hopefully this whole thing gets rained out because we sure as hell aren't going to do shit tonight offensively.
