Important Questions

Does Daryle Ward suck?

As of the 5th inning tonight, he is 3 for 3 with a walk, 3 runs scored and 6 RBIs. He needs a single for the cycle.

The Pirates can use more of that kind o' sucking.

[UPDATE: For instance, their pitchers could stop giving up 4-run innings when ahead 10-3. Don't make me look stupidly triumphalist, guys!]

[UPDATE 2: Pirates 11, Cardinals 8. Ward hit for the cycle, becoming half of the first father-son team to do so. After the game six Pirates starters had batting averages over .300. Excellent.]
