Something’s got to give

The Pirates have played five games thus far in 2013 and they've scored six runs. Three of those runs have come against Carlos Marmol, so they probably shouldn't count. Today, they'll face Hyun-Jin Ryu in his second start in America. Last week, he made his Dodger debut against Giants and served up 10 hits in 6 1/3 innings, despite only allowing one earned run. That's to say, "maybe the Pirates will have some luck against him today. Maybe." 

I was obviously wrong yesterday when I said that Jeff Locke was starting for the Pirates; he is, instead, making his 2013 debut today. Unless the offense perks up, he'll have to be very good today. The first pitch this afternoon is at 4:10.

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.
