Another Day, Another Loss 

The D-Backs lost 3-1 to the Pirates Tuesday night, with most of the scoring early, early on. The D-Backs scored 1 run in the top of the 3rd to close to within 2-1, but a familiar nemesis -- the double play with runners in scoring position -- ended the inning, thanks to Danny Bautista. Edgar Gonzalez and Alex Cintron, two recent Management By Fear (TM) recipients, had decent games, as Gonzalez held the Pirates to 2 runs in six innings and Cintron was the only D-Back to get 2 hits. Randy Johnson goes tonight in a rare opportunity for a D-Back series win.

In other news, Stephen Randolph will get one more start. We'll see how Randolph responds to MBF. There is "speculation" that Randy Johnson went on the waiver wires yesterday. Nice to see that the state's largest newspaper writes an entire article based merely on unidentified "speculation." And, Padres fans (is it "Padre fans" or "Padres fans"?) might want to check out this article on Matt Bush's early Arizona League struggles.
