Switching gears to the Bucs
April 8, 2008 - Neil Rudel
OK, so Memphis left the door open with its lousy free-throw shooting and cost me the right pick on Monday night. The upside is my son, Adam, was on Kansas from Day 1 and always, always likes to rub it into the old man.
So let's switch gears:
At least the Pirates were entertaining. The worst thing they could have done, before another huge opening-day crowd, was lose, 7-0. At least they came back and created some excitement before losing to the Cubs 10-8 in 12. But what a win, had Bixler broken for the plate on the Bautista's suicide squeeze, that would have been.
