Chris Young dominates AGAIN!!
Chris Young continues to dominate Pittsburgh,as Young allowed just 4 hits and no runs over seven innings as the Padres rolled over the Bucs 9-0.
Young,for whatever reason,has the Pirates number and continued his unbeaten streak vs the Pirates.
Paul Maholm pitched reasonably well in a losing effort,allowing 4 runs and 6 hits in 7 and two thirds and picking up the loss.
Maholm is 2-7 on the year.
The bullpen allowed 5 runs in just 1 and a third to eliminate all chances of winning away.
Final game is tonight-Greg Maddux for the Padres vs B.P.Chacon for the Pirates.
In today's Post-Gazette,Captain Dave says that money
will have no effect on who they select in next week's draft.
But what he did not say was whether or not super agent Scott Boras would have an effect.
Most people have California high school 3rd baseman Josh Vitters or Georgia Tech catcher Matt Wieters as the Pirates choice.
The same two are the Cubs top choices,so 1 should be available to Pittsburgh.
But Wieters is a Boras client.
Would the Pirates take him,if Vitters is gone?
The Bucs have shown a hesitance to take Boras players in the past.

In a slow news day-
I would like to encourage those of you out there to think about purchasing energy saving fluorescent lights.I am in the long process of replacing the bulbs here with them.
They are pricey,which is why for me the process is lengthy,but I like the lighting better,they save money in the long haul(they are more durable) and better for ones carbon footprint.
Just something to think about.
