    Pedro is starting to become one dangerous hitter. The pitch he hit out was over the outer half of the plate where he previously was having trouble making solid contact. After this series i expect alvarez'z OBP will start climbing as pitchers will stop wanting to pitch to him, especially with guys on base. Loved how he flipped the bat as soon as he hit it. Almost makes me want to see alvarez and jones switch in the order, but maybe not quite yet. Oh, and doumit still needs to go. Veteran catcher touching the ball with his mask. really?

    I had to watch the re-air of the game, which is good cause it went more than 4 hours without the editing I see Cutch on and Jones gets walked and all I'm thinking is, "ok, Jim Tracy is going to put in a lefty to face Pedro especially after the free base Huston gave up".... Nope. Pedro just flat out NAILED that one. I got chills up and down my spine watching the ball leave like it was a homerun that won something improtant

    Im still amazed that Jim Tracy - coach of the year didn't put in a lefty to face Pedro like just about every coach does late in a game needing to get Pedro out. Tracy's idocy is our gain I guess!

    One other thing I thought about that game, watching Todd Helton's homerun... that's another guy who nobody seemed to mention about using steroids whose power numbers dropped practically in half after he peaked at 50 or something like that in 2001. guy was always a great hitter but the power always seemed fake. Watching him hit that homer just reminded me of how Helton sort of avoided the steroids finger pointing

    Did he have a lefty left? He used that one lefty that Jones homered off of and that other lefty that walked Neal that was a former Pirate. I wouldn't be surprised if Street was the last bullpen pitcher left.

    One of the great things about that home run is that it happened in front of a full house.

    Everyone stuck around to hear George Throughgood play "Bad to the Bone" and uh, other songs.

    I think normally most people would have bailed after the home run in the top of the 10th.

    That's a good point. I forgot about the lefty that Jones homered off of. I know he had use Beimel but kept figuring that he had more lefties. You're probably right in that he had no more lefties to goto

    I was thinking that as well. It's always great to see a dramatic finish like that happen in front of a packed house. this was a case of where the Pirates made good use out of a promotion.

    One thing I've noticed about Pedro is that he's showing a little more plate discipline and making contact more than when he first came up. He was missing most pitches then and swinging at about everything thrown to him. I guess it goes to his history of starting every level rather poorly and then being able to adjust. Pretty impressive and I prefer a lot of Heinz ketchup with my crow.

    I love Tim Neverett's soccer announcer style call: GOOOOOOOOOOOOONE! I was at the game, and from my angle, I didn't think it was going to make it. I saw Pedro take a good rip at it, but then it looked like it was popped up too high. When I don't have good judgment on a fly, the first thing I do, is look at the body language of the outfielder, and he didn't tell me anything. He had his back to the wall, and his glove up in the air like he was ready to catch it, yet he almost seemed like he was trying to duck out of they way of it. Then the ball landed way back, and utopia ensued.

    I'm pretty sure he didn't have one left, but even if he did he likely wouldn't have gone to one. Street's the closer and just about every manager lets the closer close.

    Yeah, Colorado only has four lefties, and two of them are starters. Francis and De La Rosa (who had started that night.) In the bullpen, they have Flores (who Jones homered off of) and Beimel, and yes they both had been used. And actually, I'm not sure they had anyone else period. They used a lot of pitchers, and Street may have been all that was left......unless they wanted to bring another starter.
