I think that the drill is relatively familiar to everyone here by now. 11-18 is not very good, and 12-18 would be a little bit better. Certainly, 12-18 is required to get to 13-18. Don’t think of what you need to do to get out of the building, just think of what you need to do to get out of the room.
Francisco Liriano makes his first start today since his flu-like-incident last weekend. The Pirates really need him to pitch well. RA Dickey has made some rough starts this year, so if the Pirates can show a little bit of patience, I think they’ll have a chance to score some runs off of him.
First pitch tonight is at 7:05.
