According to the Pirate home page, Herrera is the 10th different starting pitcher for us this season. Doesn't say much for our rotation does it?

Who of them has won more than they have lost this year?

Can't slide by you can I? There are 21 pitchers(?) who have thrown for us this year. 4 or 5 have winning records thanks to the come backs this season, led by Grabow at 5-2.

But starters Gorzo is 6-7; Maholm is 6-6; and no one else has a better record.

Do you think BS would take a bet on Herrera's ERA. I'd be willing to bet that it will come down tonight.

This is garbage.. Herrera has no business starting a Major League game. Why haven't we at least called up Jason Davis? Taubenheim pitched well in his only MLB start and he gets sent down.. OK, so we have crap in Indy. This all makes me sick. The pitching coach at Indy couldn't do any worse. We may still lose 95 games. Meanwhile Oliver Perez is pitching well again tonight.

I do believe the Pirates would rather have Taubenheim throwing these innings, Ollie, but he was placed on the minor league DL after his start in Pittsburgh.

I was WRONG AGAIN.

herrera's ERA now stands at a proud 19.50---- probably fair to say that he's not ready for prime time.

In the immortal words of Johnny Carson 'may a diseased yak visit your front lawn.'
