AJ the stopper

This will be the third straight time that AJ Burnett starts a game with the Pirates on a two-game losing streak. Because the Pirates have elected to go with a six-man rotation, Burnett hasn’t pitched since Sunday and won’t pitch again until next Friday. I guess he better get his money’s worth tonight. 

Jason Marquis goes for the Padres. First pitch tonight is at 7:05.

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.
