Pirates Morning Report

FINAL SCORE: PIRATES 1 CUBS 2

WHY THE PIRATES LOST: IT STARTED WITH THE LINE UP CARD. CHAVIS SHOULD HAVE BEEN AT FIRST BASE AFTER THE GREAT GAME HE PLAYED. COLE TUCKER IN RIGHT FIELD. WHY? I GUESS THEIR BIG GOAL IS TO GET THE NO. 1 PICK NEXT YEAR. THE PIRATES TWICE HAD A RUNNER ON SECOND WITH NO ONE OUT AND FAILED TO MOVE HIM OVER AND FAILED TO SCORE.

KEY PLAY OF THE GAME: IN THE BOTTOM OF THE SIXTH THE PIRATES HAD A RUNNER ON SECOND AND ONE OUT WITH MICHAEL CHAVIS COMING TO BAT. THEN SHELTON DECIDES TO PINCH HIT FOR CHAVIS, WITH THE TURTLE. AGAIN WHY? CHAVIS’S SPLITS RIGHTY LEFTY ARE NOT THAT MUCH DIFFERENT. PLUS, THIS IS THE GUY WHO ALMOST WON YOUR LAST GAME SINGLE HANDED. GRANTED HE HADN’T LOOKED ALL THAT GOOD UP TO THIS POINT BUT MOST OF THE PIRATE BATTERS WERE IN THE SAME BOAT. OF COURSE, THE TURTLE MAKES IT LOOK EVEN WORSE BY TAKING 6 STRAIGHT PITCHES AND 3 WERE STRIKES. WHEN HE CAME TO BAT THE NEXT TIME, HE SWUNG AT 3 OUT OF 4 PITCHES AND 2 OF THOSE WERE BALLS. THIS IS A DFA WAITING TO HAPPEN. THE SOONER THE BETTER.

NEXT GAME: CUBS TODAY AT HOME. CAN’T WAIT TO SEE THE STARTING LINE UP. HOW CAN WE MAKE SURE THAT WE WILL LOSE?
