Day 3 in the Rockies

I’ve said this one a few other occasions this year, but with four losses in five games and last night’s bullpen debacle, the Pirates really need a win today to sort of shore things up here and keep from falling into another June swoon. Paul Mahom takes the mound in the unenviable position of feeling that he has to do it all on his own if the bullpen can’t be trusted, and he faces Jorge De La Rosa, who’s been pretty awful over the last two months except in his one start against, you guessed, the Pirates.

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.
