Comments on: Game 98 Recap: Cards Pounce in Fifth Your best source for news on the Pittsburgh Pirates and their minor league system. Wed, 12 Nov 2014 21:00:00 +0000 hourly 1 By: Anonymous Sun, 24 Jul 2011 13:18:00 +0000 Your draining the optimism quote is very accurate.

Correia has slipped past being dependable.

Veras on his off nights is very ugly.

The Pearce-Diaz-Wood combo is deadly. Albert, Matt and Lance are deadly. Slight difference in the two.

July 31st approaches. NH picks up a minor league RP for free.

Hope for a win today.

Did anyone expect a win with Steve Pearce, Matt Diaz and Brandon Wood in the lineup??

By: Anonymous Sun, 24 Jul 2011 11:12:00 +0000 Did it seem like it was men vs. boys last night?  Correia was throwing batting practice and most of theBuc’s lineup, with the exception of Cutch and Walker (and maybe Cedeno) belong on the bench or in the minor leagues.  The Card’s 3-4-5 hitters are mighty imposing.

Let’s get healthy, get Pedro back, and go Karsten’s!!
