Is this a must win for us?  Seems like it might be.  We are on the cusp of falling into 3rd place behind the Reds.  They start a four game series in Milwaukee tonight.

I dont think its a must win, but if cincy continues winning on the road we could be in trouble.

I certainly dont want to be in that 2nd WC spot.

Step away from the barnaby jones dvds for now rat...

Like our chances with Lynn. Like the lineup, with a switch hitter with pop on the bench.

Hope Cruz on the DL doesn't cause Mike to go hard on Molina.

I haven't seen much discussion about moving Wacha to the pen. I'm assuming a late inning role, 7th inning I guess. So far, so good, after last night. He went 22 pitches over two innings, so is he out for tonight? One day rest, then ready again?

I'm thinking I like Maness and Siegrist as guys who come in with runners on, Wacha and Rosenthal starting off innings. That seems like how it wlll go.

Wacha should be a starter....especially with Westbrooks recent performances...

today's batting order (line-up) looks allot different with Yadi, active..

must win; YES
no discussion

That was tried.  He needs to get experience facing big league hitters, commanding all of his pitches, and retiring batters efficiently.  It is reasonable to try to let him get that experience without also having to pace himself and go through a lineup 3 times.

Apparently the forearm has been an issue for a while now.  Probably why they have been carrying 3 catchers.

A micro-fracture in his forearm. What an odd injury. They said the increased PT made it flare up more.

Either way, he'll be back on September 1st and we get to keep Johnson, who, as Brian said, would have to clear waivers otherwise. Good timing for the stretch run assuming all are healthy by September.

OK.  Not really sure why Marte tried to steal there.  Second dumb base running error in two days.  Lucky only one of them cost the Bucs (last nights attempt to stretch the double was successful, but had it not been, the run wouldn't have scored).

OK... will Burnett have 1st inning struggles?  He has a few times this year.

Adams bounced one up the middle, but with the shift on the SS was standing right there.

So, in keeping with the apparent theme of game threads of only criticizing I have this to say.

It appears to me that Pirates pitchers have figured out how to pitch to Cardinals hitters.  If the Cardinals don't adjust, it is just going to be more of the same.

Oh, and Allen Craig looks terrible at the plate lately.
