Cliff Lee pitched pretty well for most of the day and had a lead late into the seventh inning before surrendering it shortly after a Charlie Manuel mound visit. Phillippe Aumont then allowed the Pirates to take the lead in the eighth, Durbin tacked on more, and that was the ball game.
What do you say at this point? They're not taking advantage of their opportunities when they have them at the plate. Their starting pitching has been mostly okay, but when they've needed the pen to step up over the past two days, they've failed to do so.
Charlie Manuel got tossed and Cliff Lee got an infield single and was subsequently thrown out stealing, but other than that it was a shitty day.
Another lackluster performance. Another loss.
The line Aumount: 1/3 inning, 3 arrrghs, 3 oh nos, 4 earned forget it let's go drinks.

Per the suggestion of a reader, we're wondering if it's too late to turn The700Level.com into a TV blog? Or perhaps a blog about food trucks? Maybe a blog dedicated to the musical offerings of the rock and roll jamband Phish (from Vermont)? A coffee blog? Any suggestions?
