Let’s just give Justin Verlander the no-hitter and get on with our lives

This is the lineup the Pirates are trotting out against Justin Verlander: 

  1. Josh Harrison, DH
  2. Neil Walker, 2B
  3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
  4. Pedro Alvarez, 3B
  5. Garrett Jones, RF
  6. Casey McGehee, 1B
  7. Nate McLouth, LF
  8. Clint Barmes, SS
  9. Mike McKenry, C 

This lineup has no realistic chance to beat Justin Verlander. Charlie Morton will be sacrificed by the Pirates. First pitch is at 7:05.

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.
