You’d have to ask some of the other writers to see if they did. Karstens must not be 100 % healthy, or else Hurdle would have used him instead of vandenHurk. I’ll check up on his status when they return on Tuesday.

I also loved your Twitter where you said that you ask the tough questions because the Bucs don’t pay your salary. So….did anyone ask these questions about yesterday’s game?

Why was Hughes brought in for the 3rd straight game (breaking one of Hurdle’s rules? Why wasn’t a lefty brought in to face Rizzo? If one wasn’t up in the pen, why not?

No reason to pitch Van Der Dud. The Karstens excuse Hurdle gave doesn’t wash because he hasn’t pitched in relief in two years (that I am aware of). RV also was a starter. Personally, I would’ve brought in Leroux (he bombed too), or Qualls, but….

I think the healthier choice would have been to quit the Pirates. After today’s debacle (including more head-scatching decisions from CH) it seems the 20th straight sub-500 campaign is inevitable
