Maholm and Moehler, but no Freddy

Freddy Sanchez is sitting out again tonight, which makes the lineup that JR has scheduled to take the field look like it’s ready to be overwhelmed by the certainly not overwhelming Brian Moehler. So far the Bucs have dropped five of six in July and would really be mired in a long stretch of ugliness if not for the four-game winning streak against Cleveland and KC towards the end of July.

Anyways, Paul Maholm, who’s a dreaful 1-3 with an 8.86 ERA and a 2.11 WHIP in his last our starts, goes out to the mound tonight to try and hold the Astros to under four runs, in which case the Pirates might have a chance. Maybe.

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.
