Chicago finale #1

First things first today; we have to score a run. After we score a run, then we can worry about whether or not we can actually win a baseball game. Of course, this is the game that we draw the worst pitching matchup of the series (for us) with Mark Buehrle and Jeff Karstens on the mound.

Our chances are not helped by the fact that John Russell is continuing along on his “I know my team is full of well-conditioned athletes in the prime of their lives, but I still think they need rest, dammit, and so we’re going to follow up two straight shutouts by benching the best hitter on the team because … I’m not sure why.” Yeah, this is going to go well.

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.
