Teke said 2 weeks ago the Pirates starters problems have been the 1st inning, and Gorzo was one of the worst ones this year...Duke is the only one under a 4.00 1st inning ERA...

It's on WGN if you have access to that.

I'm glad I took the time to look at the starting lineups today and saw the Cubs say Fukudome so I was able to put DeRosa in his place on my fantasy team...

Man Walkie is all over Gorzy for not throwing anything but fastballs (aka batting practise balls).

Maybe Gorzo and Snell are the only pitchers that miss Jim Tracy and Co.'s pitching philosophy?

Both have not looked well at all this year

I think I'm just going to start setting all of our games against the Cubs aside in a separate category. It will at least feel better about the Bucs because I won't even picture these as "real games" but just more of a practice.

This might be what Russell and Gorzo will look like by the 5th inning...

Well, we smashed our "new" board record with 24 people online about a half-hour ago. Yippee.

I've noticed that the game threads are actually typically a lot more active when we are losing. Oy.
