Until last night, the Pirates' offense has been scoring a lot of runs, and the focus of worry has justifiably been the pitching staff.

But just because the offense as a whole has been successful, Tracy shouldn't be complacent about making it better. Chris Duffy looks nice running down balls in that spacious outfield at PNC Park, and I generally don't get too excited about batting-lineup order, but I do know this: a guy who draws two walks in 50 at-bats should not be batting leadoff. Unless he improves greatly (which is not impossible), he is Omar Moreno without the stolen bases. That's going to hurt when the home run binge ends.
