I just want to say that the ejection of Jonathan Sanchez was crap. We would have lost that game, no doubt. And we were more competitive likely with him gone from the game. And I know he is not long for the Buccos’ world. The guy has a history of control issues, but to eject him because the circumstances were suspicious is ridiculous! Those circumstances are not more suspicious than the three Pirates who were hit by pitches throughout the remainder of the game.
Now our bullpen which has already been taxed is spent even more. The pressure is on for AJ Burnett to pitch well and efficiently.
