A day game?

We’ve got a weirdly placed afternoon game today, which will feature Paul Maholm and Johnny Cueto on the mound. You’ll note that the Reds moved their starter from last night’s rainout back a day in the rotation, while the Pirates did not do the same for Jeff Karstens. Both LaRoches are back in today’s lineup, while John Russell will be in the dugout with his arm in a sling thanks to surgery to relieve gout in his elbow. Do you really think any other teams have managers that need surgery for gout?

About Pat Lackey

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.
