I think last night’s pinch hit for Barmes may have signaled the beginning of the end for the Barmes era. Its an era that cannot end soon enough.

Detwiler is pitching way over his head thus far and is due for some serious regression.

The Pirates see one to two aces every series, aces shut down average to below average hitters, that is why they are aces. The Pirates get their couple of runs most games, Ace pitchers give up a couple of runs most games, if the rest of the league can’t get more than one or two runs off of these guys, why would anyone think the Pirates should get more than one or two runs? When the rotations start to flip and the Pirates start some series off against some 3′s and 4′s, we will see if they hit!
