This year is the worst umpiring I've ever seen.

I agree... but then I've been saying that every year for the last five seasons at least.

I know clutch hitting isn't easy by any means, but you'd think by the law of averages we'd catch a break here and there on a blooper or error...damn.

Man, the Cubs inability to get extra base hits is just irritating.....


Agree 100%. We should turn this into a drinking game. Every hitter that doesn't get an extra base hit = finish your drink. Starting now, GO!


Am I the only one that is drunk at this point? C'mon guys!

Well, this almost was the first game this year with no extra base hits by either side....

It is a real shame that after this fantastic performance from Dempster that he has to take a loss because this team can't even score a goddamn run! GAAAAAAAH

We could hope so. But I think the rest of the league realizes that the Pirates are a AAA lineup. Not sure there is that much value to be gained.

If I had to choose an outing to show him off this was a good one. He can take you into the ninth only giving up 1 run. I like that in a starter.

I like a starter who can't attempt a 1-3 without putting the ball in the stands... but I'm old school like that.

In the high 90'S in pitch count and letting him bat I see no other reason

I hate bunting with position players. I'll make an exception for Hill.....
