I’m excited for Kevin Hart’s Pirate debut tonight for several reasons:
- He’s probably better than Virgil Vasquez.
- He might actually be a decent pitcher.
- Because of his last name, a large percentage of this site’s readership will make wrestling jokes about Kevin “the Hitman” Hart. We’ve been missing this since Jason “HBK” Michaels left.
With Max Scherzer on the mound, Hart will probably have to be just about perfect tonight to get a win. The offense won’t be scoring many (any?) runs, and the bullpen is just waiting out in centefield to drop a Montreal Screwjob on any starting pitcher that dares leave the game with a lead.
