Nationals @ Pirates, Game 3
« Topic Start: April 16, 2022, 06:33:35 PM »
   

No more Pittsburgh stadium pictures, so here's the Gateway Grill sports bar in Monroeville, PA.
Pretty good as bar food goes, plus over 700 beers.
I've spent far more time around Monroeville over the years than in Pittsburgh proper, so I have no idea where one would go in the Steel City itself.

I thought Monroeville was just an exit on the PA Turnpike.

Pretty much, yeah, but it has a convention center which hosted a number of events I've attended over the decades.

Not an efficient start to the game for Rogers, but no damage.

I hope that was Rogers toughest inning.  He looked like he had some problems throwing strikes.  At least all the contact was on the ground.

By the way, of course a scoreless inning is what we all want as his toughest inning. Sounds like captain obvious.  I'm talking about the Fedde-like pitch count and the inability to throw strikes.

That's actually his first hit in this series after owning Atlanta.

Might be less, given the weather forecast.

PNC remains my favorite ballpark in baseball. It just feels perfect. Fans deserve more.

Robles is garbage and needs to be dfa. He’s wasted talent at this point.
