He looked away before he caught the ball, plain and simple. And every player has done that on occasion.

The MLB Network pounds it to death,along with the mantra of the Buc’s weak offense. Sure,I know the Cardinals can hit the ball,but in all my 70 years,I was always told ,” good pitching will beat good hitting EVERY TIME ” ! So,when I look at the standings,and it shows the Cards with only a game and a half lead on the Pirates and 5 up on the Reds,I realize there is some other dynamic at work there.

Pirates pitching and defense may be slightly better than Cards, but they have a big advantage at the dish.

More like they played way over their heads last June/July.

That said the Pirates have just as much offense as the Giants of 2010 and 2012. So an upgrade isn’t absolutely necessary.
