Game 14something: Cubs 11 Pirates 9

Writing recaps for these games is getting depressing, but damn, that second Pedro Alvarez home run was sure majestic, wasn't it? Just for like ten minutes there, I had this vision of Pedro hitting 10 homers in the last 17 games and dragging the Pirates kicking and screaming to a respectable finish. And then the bullpen got involved. 

I've been doing a bad job of posting lately. I know. I've been recalibrating into "What does 2012 mean for 2013?" mode; it's not where I wanted to be after the way things started this year, but so it goes. You all know me; I can't stay quiet about the Pirates for forever.

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.
