They have been solid all season. I will complain about Tony Watson though. 4.20 ERA, he has been nowhere close to last season. Does he have any options left? Who will they send down when they activate Charlie today?
On the other hand, it is pretty rare for the Pirates to win a game when they give up 15 hits, so that was very nice. Time to give Presley a start in RF and see if he can do better than these other guys have.

It was an attempt to turn a tough double play. But I have seen Barmes make bad throws under less pressure for one. And if you saw the game the night before you should note that all this supposed range Barmes has consists of him getting to some balls up the middle but very seldom doing much more than stopping the ball. I could take Jean Segura playing short and hitting .200 in a heartbeat but not Barmes. His defense does not make up for his clueless at bats!

He would see fewer good pitches batting in front of the pitcher versus batting in front of Cutch.

Also, when Mercer hits 2nd his numbers seem alot better then when he hits 8th.

I understand they are paying Barmes a shit ton of money but the lineup isn’t the best it can be with him in it. Is this a reoccurring theme or what?
