Monday we were facing a tough righty and he put up an 0fer. Pressley isn’t great but it showed how shallow our bench is when we had to start a player whos hitting under 200 against RHs. Corria is what he is. He gives up three runs every 6 innings with an occasional blow up. I would prefer McDonald who has the pedigree to go the distance and shut a team down even if he has not done so the lat 6 weeks. I would love to see us trade or waive Corria to a team that could use him and try to get something that maybe could help us in 2-3 years. All in all its nice to be discussing the Pirates in mid August wothout referring to next year.

His line was a little rough last night but that in no way was his fault. If J-Mac struggles again this start, I don’t see how they have any option but to put him in the pen. I wouldn’t mind at all seeing Locke get a shot if they stick with the 6 man rotation. Not sure why you’re higher on Presley than Sanchez, Sanchez has hit better since he’s been here than Presley has hit all but the beginning of the season. I’m glad you’re still a believer, I guess I never have been. I desperately want to be a believer, but I guess I have to see it first. I am hopeful that at the end of the season all the believers out there can rub it in my face and tell me I was wrong. That would be awesome.

We need another hitter on the bench. with Snyder out we have nothing on the bench. You have to wonder would we have won on Monday with Pressley playing instead of Sanchez? I think the Bucs have another run in them and they will need it to hold of the Cardinals,. Giants and the Dodgers. I am still a believer!

Having been a fan all my life and seen the past 19 years unfold, my pessimism is creeping in. I’m not jumping ship but I’m losing faith every day that these guys can hold it together for 30 more games.

They just couldn’t resist Neil and Pedro’s stellar fielding from last nights game. Seriously though, I have a bad feeling that by the time this season is over we are all going to be saying we should have traded the hammer and got a big return for him ect. At this point I’m just hoping we can keep it above .500 for the season. I’m still rooting and hoping for playoffs, but 19+ years of losing has me pre-conditioned to expect the worst.
