1) The Houston Astros are terrible. I wish the Pirates could play them every night.
2) Michael McKenry, who dropped a "Major League" reference during the post-game interview, needs to play every day. He has solid power, a good walk rate, and he's quite adept at catching the baseball and throwing it back to the pitcher. In these ways -- the ones that actually matter -- he is literally a better baseball catcher than Rod Barajas, who is bad.
