Grooved pitch to Jeter or not Miggy got all of a really good pitch, which was the difference.

That ball was 2-3" off the inside of the plate. He knew it was coming and didn't miss.

I know. I'm assuming that is exactly where he wanted it but Miggy was too quick.

Probably a good move.

Verlander is pitching so poorly because he's distracted by that refrigerator box that he's dating. Quantify that shit, Fangraphs! I mean... look at what Rory McIlroy has accomplished since losing Wozniacki.

I know. This happened the last damn time when those two were going at it.

Yeah, not everyone can operate as smoothly as Jeets.

I just purchased tickets for the two games that the Tigers will be playing in Pittsburgh. Looking forward to seeing PNC park. Maybe there will be a Jim Leyland sighting! The Pittsburgh area is where he keeps his permanent residence. I will be staying just blocks away from the park in the historic Mexican War Streets neighborhood. Should be great fun.

Here is an article written by a guy who has visited every MLB park and "rates" them. PNC was ranked #1. Cellular Field is, uh, #27.

PNC Park is really great. Pittsburgh is an interesting city. It's very blue collar but then you have things like the Andy Warhol Museum, PNC Park, and Falling Water just a bit outside of town. Make sure you go to Primanti Brothers while you're there!

Whether it is Kate or body-is-still-healing-after-surgery or advancing age, we still need Verlander. I hope that Ausmus becomes a Sparky Anderson "Captain Hook" and pulls JV if at the first sign of trouble. Let's get whatever mileage out of him that we can. We need him. Right now, he doesn't have the power to get out of a jam.

IMO, three things are needed for the 2nd half of the season:
1. Porcello has to continue to throw his "where-did-that-ball-go?" pitches. Don't get fancy. I believe him to be a serious student of pitching. He wants to learn.
2. J. D. Martinez has to continue to have a hot bat.
3. Health of Miggy and VMart.

Being a Cincy native and Reds fan I hate all things sports about Pittsburgh.. but honestly, I do really like PNC and the surrounding areas. The Matress Factory (Warhol) is a definite must-see and The Point, Squirrel Hill is nice. I've always enjoyed my time cheering on the Reds in Pittsburgh haha!
I think like many local faves Primanti Bros. is over-rated though. Same as Skyline Chili in Cincy... it's really just not that good.

Not a fan of Skyline but I've only had it in Fort Lauderdale.

Last time I had it I was in high school, drunk at 1am! Wait now that I think about it we actually won some free coneys at the Reds game a few years back, but even free didn't taste any better. Now Graeter's ice cream otoh is truly something to seek out. Regarded by many foodies as one of the world's best ice creams... really. nod[1].gif
