White Sox at Pirates - 6/16/15
Posted 16 June 2015 - 08:24 PM
Manny Machado has gone deep twice. He's now hitting .287/.347/.504 and is still only 22 years old.
I like Taillon and all, but can you imagine this offense with that guy in the middle of the lineup?

Nobody predicted a 1.62 era after five starts. But he isn't this good obviously. He will regress to what we saw in 2011 and 2013, in my opinion.
"The Bay trade doesn't look like it (a slam dunk winner), but if you take into account the fact that all they lost was eight months of Jason Bay's services, as well as the fact that even the Red Sox look like they won't be able to re-sign him, it's not nearly the loser many people seem to think." - tWTM 11/26/2009
"Morton is finding himself, now while this may sound weird and out there, but the fact he put on a solo concert at Piratefest shows he finally has the confidence that he lacked within himself that he didn't have in the lower minors." - aso513 2/8/2010
"Dave Littlefield vindicated." - Xiga 4/30/2011 after one scoreless inning of relief by Daniel Moskos.
"Hanrahan and Cedeno would be a gross overpayment for Belt. Sorry, but I'll stick with my realistic analysis of the market and the teams involved." - Steve Zielinski 5/25/2011
"He (Barmes) could have a .000 Batting Average and still be an asset." - bradlej31 5/28/2012
"The last time the Pirates won an extra-inning game in St. Louis that lasted at least 16 frames was April 20, 1986 at Chicago." - Kristy Robinson 8/19/2012
"I want to tweet something clever and interesting to you that will earn your respect and make you smile, since you do that to me all the time." - jpbucco to Colin Dunlap 4/12/2016
"If the Pirates had acquired Giancarlo Stanton from the Marlins, I’m not sure they would have “won” the Benedict trade." - David Todd 11/11/2015

Opie Taylor. In a decisive moment.
