Bracing for the storm

Last night, Matt Holliday hit a home run and showboated a bit, so Tony Watson threw behind Lance Berkman. Nothing happened last night, but Tony La Russa tends to not let things like this slide. I have a feeling we’re going to hear about this again. James McDonald and Jake Westbrook take the mound tonight for any potential fireworks. Obviously, how McDonald finishes 2011 is a big deal for the Pirates and he’s one of the guys I’m watching pretty closely as the season winds down. 

First pitch tonight is at 8:15.

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.
