I'm not generally one to blame losses on the skipper, but down 1 run 2 outs bottom of the 9th, how the fuck do you not pinch run for Kang? He nearly collapsed halfway down the 3rd base line.

Frisco announcers were saying the exact same thing as it happened, except they somehow thought it was Cervelli, not Kang.

Buccos still on an impressive roll --- will the laws of averages and that cheap-ass Nutting's chiseling inevitably turn this team downward, or will they continue to soar?

Hurdle was down to Reyes alone as a PH which is why he claimed he didn't use him.

The bigger question may be, however, why he pulled Archer after only 5 IP.

Inability to score runs may have dictated that...Hurdle feels he has to take advantage of all opportunities to score, I guess.

They haven't played anyone really good yet...my bet is on the former.

Yeah, but they’ll get some guys back from injuries and restore their depleted farm system
