Jeff Karstens makes me nervous. The article about him messing with deliveries all spring just makes me generally uneasy for some reason. It’s likely because I’m not sure how good he is to start with, even if I’d rather see him than Jason Davis or Virgil Vasquez in the rotation. He’s going against Johnny Cueto, who strikes me as just the sort of pitcher that the Pirates are capable of making look very good.
Anyways, I want to see Karstens pitch, but I’m going to Durham for the Price/Wieters bonanza tonight (secretly keeping an eye on Nolan Reimold, who I played with in high school), so I think I’m going to set the DVR for this one tonight and catch it after the Bulls game ends, if its not rained out.
