I had to travel to Pittsburgh this week and was able to catch Tuesday night's game against the Phils. PNC Park is a great stadium, weather was great, and I got to see the Pirates win in walk-off fashion
I will let some of you researcher-types tell me how many times that has happened in MLB history before.
Back to my point about being thankful...
Everyone should be aware that the pirates have already traded 2/5ths of starting rotation, their entire starting outfield, and entire starting infield except catcher.
McCutchen was called up in June when Nate Mclouth was traded to Atlanta
So bottom of the first inning, McCutchen leads off with single and proceeds to steal 2nd. Let me tell you, this kid is fast. Utlimately, the Pirates stranded him at third.
But as I am sitting there, next to this kid, maybe 9 or 10, he looks up at me and says "so we are not gonna give him away, are we? My response? Not yet.
Sucks to be a Pirate fan.
