Joel Hanrahan and Jeff Salazar should be in the house at PNC tonight, giving the Pirates a full 25-man roster to battle Randy Wells and the Cubs with tonight. Virgil Vasquez gets the start for the Pirates. Garret Jones will make his Pirate debut in left field and Brandon Moss will move back to right (I would’ve kept Moss in left, personally), but other than that the lineup is unchanged for the Pirates tonight.
Jack Wilson, meanwhile, is sorry for his critical comments after the trade yesterday. I’m happy to see that, because they were pretty unprofessional and while Jack can be a bit self-righteous from time to time, he is a class act and it’s nice to see him take this upon himself without any prompting from the organization.
