Morning Cuts: August 27, 2011

Pirates:

  • Jose Veras summed up his simultaneously brilliant and exasperating season over the course of three batters last night. Veras took the mound in the bottom of the 8th facing the Pujols-Holliday-Berkman triumvirate that every time I see makes me wonder how on earth the Cardinals are not in first place. Veras struck out Pujols. He then fell behind Holliday 3-0, got it back to 3-2, but ultimately walked him. Lance Berkman then proceeded to hit the first pitch of his at bat deep into the St. Louis night. The Pirates went down feebly in the top of the 9th, and it was over. (box)
  • Kevin Mort went 5 1/3 innings in a 19-inning loss last night for single-A West Virginia. Also, Kevin Mort is a second baseman.
Penguins:
  • Hockey Canada is stepping up its efforts to protect players from the QMJHL on down. It seems as though something positive may come from Sidney Crosby’s miserable situation.
  • Also, Sidney Crosby is NOT a pussy.
TODAY: The schedule of events for Pittsburgh fans sets up nicely so that we don’t have any reason to leave our couches from 4:10 on.
  • Falcons at Steelers (7:30). Preseason game three; the mediocrity continues
  • Pirates (Lincoln) at Cardinals (Carpenter) — 4:10.
  • Hurricane Irene is here to ruin your shit.
