Randall Simon (shown above) had three hits and wunderkind Pedro Alvarez had zero, but the Pirates still managed to edge the Netherlands, 5-4, in an exhibition game this afternoon. Check out this powerhouse Bucco lineup:

Anderson Machado, SS
Luis Cruz, 2B
Craig Monroe, DH
Garrett Jones, RF
Pedro Alvarez, 3B
Andy Phillips, 1B
Jeff Salazar, CF
Ruben Gotay, LF
Erik Kratz, C

Yeah, that's what you're left with when a bunch of guys head off to the WBC. And might I add, the smart money in the WBC is not with the Netherlands when they can't even beat the JV Buccos. Nonetheless, the Pirates are now 5-1 and learning how to win. At least that's what I'm telling myself.

How can they be expected to win with all the bunk weed in PA? The Pirate players are holding all the good stuff.
