A single-admission double-header in Yankee Stadium is a rare thing

The Pirates will play two in Yankee Stadium today. Charlie Morton will start the first game for the Pirates and Gerrit Cole will start the second. They’ve both pitched pretty well lately. A piece of advice I would give them would be, “Don’t give up a million home runs like Edinson Volquez did yesterday, because that made it hard to win.” Hiroki Kuroda starts the opener for the Yankees and an apparently real, actual human being named Vidal Nuno starts the second for them.

The first game started like two minutes ago. Neil Walker has already homered for the Pirates. Two wins today seems like a lot to ask for, but it would be pretty great.

In 2005, I started a WHYGAVS instead of working on organic chemistry homework. Many years later, I've written about baseball and the Pirates for a number of sites all across the internet, but WHYGAVS is still my home. I still haven't finished that O-Chem homework, though.
