    SOMEbody forgot to set their clock ahead

  2. Arriba Wilver says:

    Cole’s given up 2 runs-he sucks
    McLouth has an error-he sucks
    Martin is catching-yeah!

    Sorry, trying to get into mid-season form.

  3. Well, a W. That’s something different.

  4. No thread for the other game? We’re winning that one, too.


  5. Drew71 says:

    Mid season form?


    Then I wonder who they’re gonna trade

  6. A double header sweep and everyone is sleeping off Sunday dinner.

    And J. Sanchez only gave up 2 runs in 2 innings, 2 hits, 1 walk, 1 HR.

    A momentous day and now it’s hockey time already.

    Everyone not nailed down.

    In the WBC game – Taillon is pitching for Canada against Team USA. If Taillon wins this game, I would not be surprised to see the calls for him to start the season with the big league club.

  9. Arriba Wilver says:

    Nah, nobody’s been pushing that.

  10. Ghost says:

    Is that a challenge? ;)

  11. DemonDachshund says:

    Calls by who?

    It was a great start and an encouraging sign, but no need to push a 21 year old with a year and a half of minor league ball under his belt into the show. Even ignoring the service time issue, I’d want to see him face AAA for at least half a season first. We’re talking about a guy with 3 AA starts total.

    June 2014 still seems like the earliest, to me.

  12. Arriba Wilver says:

    Nope. I suspect the notion was an indirect swipe at people who think IF Cole is one of the best 25 he should go north with the team.

  13. Ghost says:

    I know. Was just kidding. I had come down on that IF side and was jesting about doing the same for Taillon. Not absolutely married to a position on either of those guys though.

  14. Hal Smith says:

    Am I the only person who is directed to Duquesne’s site instead off Pirates?
