Tony Sanchez was solid behind the plate today against the Braves.

Pittsburgh Pirates Catcher Tony Sanchez Put On A Show Today


We lucked into some seats behind homeplate for today’s Pittsburgh Pirates thumping of the Atlanta Braves.  The Pirates pitchers had an impressive day yesterday, and today wasn’t awful, just a lot different.

We came to one conclusion.  It would suck to be Tony Sanchez.    Well, relatively.

No matter how hard Sanchez plays, it will never be good enough for some Pittsburgh Pirates fans.  But we are here to tell you, Sanchez did did nothing but play his tail off today.   Without Sanchez blocking everything in the dirt, the outcome could have been a lot different than the 9-2 final.

We took 777 pictures today, most of them were of the catcher.  So, yeh Tony Sanchez stood out for us.  Big time.   Not only did he block everything, but Sanchez hustled behind every ground ball. It even paid off once as an errant throw bounced near the Buccos first rounder.

All the kid did was work.

Some people will say these are the same pictures…we just repeated them.

We will tell them they are lying.

Look at the scoreboard and compare the names…

We would post the rest, but you would get bored with us.

Look, Tony Sanchez is just fine.   His pitching staff loves him too…especially Justin Wilson, Jared Hughes, Tony Wa…ahh, you’re getting bored.   Let’s just end the Tony Sanchez hate-fest in the Burgh.

The kid is just fine and he’s not that far away from the bigs.  He is watching Martin.  He is learning his pitching staff.  Sanchez will get to Pittsburgh.

But in the meantime, sit back and watch him work this season.  His most recent piece of work, the game he played Sunday was an amazing show of athleticism and we’re proud that he’s a Bucco.

      I think I may have saw you by the gate as I walked out after the game, BUCN T-shirt and all, but I didn’t want to walk up to some random guy and have it be the wrong person, lol.

    The guy is a stud and one tough, dedicated SOB. He is made for the Burgh. Can’t wait for his arrival at PNC.
