So...from now until September 3, with the exception of a two-game set against Minnesota, the Pirates will be playing teams they are competing against for a playoff spot.

We will know by the end of the month if September baseball in Pittsburgh is worth watching.

Starting to worry that the pitching is reverting to form.

No runs scored yet but Nova is struggling to locate.

As did Archer yesterday and Kingham on Wednesday.

Addendum to earlier post.

Dickerson has been activated, but is not starting.

Nova looks sharper this inning so far with the first batter.

Maybe Diaz’ ridiculous gear was blinding him.

Of course Kolten Wong follows with a double...although Polanco nearly got him at second (like he nearly got Carpenter in the first inning).

Hell of a defensive play by the Bucs to gun a runner at the plate again!

Nova at 81 pitches and it's 4-1.

Hurdle will make him suck this up.

Cervelli flashing some leather in his first ever start at first base.

Sorry...in two years. He has played it before.

The Pirates have not retired the side in order since the 3rd inning Tuesday night.

That’s now 24 innings and counting.

Hurdle looks to be conceding this game to preserve the bullpen.

Pitching alarm bells going off big time.

The four games against the Cubs and Cards have been really badly pitched. We are lucky to be 2-2.

Two clean innings out of the last thirty-three innings pitched is not gonna get it done.

And think of how bad this series so far could have been...the Cards have left 28 men on base in the two games.

Serpico with his .164 BA is the last hope for the Bucs...with Freese on the bench holding a lifetime .500 BA against Norris.

WTF, HURDLE?!?!?!?!?!?

Save your strength, Jeems . . . Just cut and paste the bolded portion whenever needed.

Hopefully this is Clint Hurdle's last season in a Pirate uniform.

Guys on the radio said Freese must be injured........were they right? or just in awe of the dumb move by Hurdle.
