Comments on: McCutchen Homer Only Respite as L.A.

Teams run all over them and get clutch hits against them and shut down their offense with regularity because they know what’s coming. I know what’s coming and I’m just a casual observer.

All too predictable. Love the optimism guys, but we have a hole to dig out of already. Hurdle and the Pirates have no answers, but that’s the issue — everyone else in baseball gets it.

But I think the context is key. One can be a “victim” or “casualty” while doing things wrong or not. He’s certainly not an innocent victim, and I don’t intend to diminish his problems today. My point is more that L.A. has acted as an assembly line for the manufacturing of Pirates losses.

Locke rather than being a victim was the cause of the loss.

The Dodgers had 5 (FIVE) players starting with a .000 batting average! The Pirates had 4 (FOUR). The Dodgers COMBINED batting average was a whopping .188; The Pirates? A truly abysmal combined batting average of .088! Good to think that this won’t last forever, and hope they get another hot hitting streak sooner than later.
