No doubt that the reason the Pirates are 4-3 can be traced to the starting pitching. No doubt, whatsoever.

The good news is that some more offense is on the way ... McCutchen, Alvarez, Tabata, Friday (?), Ford (?), and maybe even Walker.

And the off-days are really keeping the bullpen fresh. Very good start!

I think that the only off day the Pirates have had came via the rainout.

The rainout came at the perfect time. With tomorrow being an off-day that spells more rest for the bullpen. Lovely!

Snell might be the key to the success/failure of the 2009 Pittsburgh Pirates.

Even more than Snell i think it will be whoever is the #5. For now Karstens but how long will that last. Snell will be up and down like he always is. Is our #5 is just down we are in for more horrors.
