Game 93: Reds 6 Pirates 5

I have a few thoughts:

  • Yup, I think it’s time to have “that” conversation with Pedro Alvarez. I wonder if the Mets will trade Blake Taylor back for Ike Davis?
  • I really don’t think it’s ideal to look at a pitcher who’s given up four hits in a row and already blown a two-run lead and think, “Hey, maybe he’ll get the fifth guy out” with the game on the line.
  • I know Starling Marte’s absence shortens the bench, but why even take the field if you’re going to send Michael Martinez and Matt Hague to the plate against Aroldis Chapman?

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
