The start of a big weekend

The Pirates are tied for first place and playing at home. The Brewers are in town. Gerrit Cole is on the mound. Can you think of a better Friday? I'm not sure that I can. 

First pitch will be at 7:05. After Cole's first three starts against Tim Lincecum, Zack Greinke, and Jered Weaver, tonight he'll face Johnny Hellweg, who is a 24-year old making his big league debut with a K/BB of 1.14 in Triple-A this year. Nobody should be overlooked. Don't let up.

About Pat Lackey

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.
