Be warned, the following lineup is not safe for children:

Pirates' lineup:

1. Cedeno, SS
2. Milledge, LF
3. Young, 2B
4. Jones, RF
5. Pearce, 1B
6. LaRoche, 3B
7. Salazar, CF
8. Jaramillo, C
9. Ohlendorf, P

Diamondbacks' lineup:

1. Drew, SS
2. Parra, LF
3. Upton, RF
4. Reynolds, 3B
5. Montero, C
6. Roberts, 2B
7. Tracy, 1B
8. Young, CF
9. Davis, P


Apparently, JR is disappointed we didn't get no-hit last night, so he is pulling out all the stops in an attempt to be embarrassed tonight.

Oh Geez...I'm gonna need to drink to get through this game tonight...

Atleast, the sound will be off at my gig...Salazar in CF? Cant Milledge move to CF for the night and let Moss bat?

Ya wonder . . . what exactly has Salazar done to merit a start? He's lucky to be getting major league per diem. But I understand Milledge was a disaster in CF in Washington, so maybe JR just doesn't have any other option.

Cutch has played a lot of games in a row and needs a day off. Doumit obviously needs a day off, with his recent workload.

What I don't get is why Russell does not break up the off days, and have Cutch miss one game and Doumit the next? Why sit both for one game?

Beats me. That's what Leyland used to do as well. I suspect that they're reasoning that it's better to have your strongest lineup out there six times in a week than five times.

It's not even Sunday.

Salazar should never EVER get a start. Of course someone will say he needs to get some at bats to help his pinch hitting, but he can't pinch hit anyway. HORRIBLE LINEUP!

I think I will find something else to do tonight. Not worth getting pissed off that we can't hit Dougie Davis.

I am going to "watch" the first inning at work, via internet. If it is ugly, no viewing when I get home. I will go for a run instead of spending 2 1/2 hours watching the Pirates flail at Doug Davis breaking pitches in the dirt. Running is less painful than viewing, under those circumstances ...

Wow, and I didn't think it could get any worse than being one-hit. This is a tough watch, even for a die-hard Pirates fan. No Cutch...no Doumit...ouch.

At least Doumit is getting a rest, but no Cutch really is painful. Let's go Bucs!! Hopefully, we don't make Davis look like a Cy Young candidate tonight.

Well, the reason for Cutch not playing....he is feeling the effects from his little collision at 1b last night.

Nice bunt by Milledge. I thought it was a bad call.

Great job Andy! He's been close recently, seemingly getting a little more power in his stroke. Maybe he can get hot for the rest of the year.

Concur. Andy has a power stroke, as evidenced by some bombs hit the other way. He will hit HR's as he plays more and learns which pitches and pitchers he can victimize.

I still think the power will come. I think he can be an excellent 3b for us. But I got to thinking about some of the other guys we have coming up, plus our shortcomings at SS. He certainly would not be prototypical, but I wonder if Andy could handle SS adequately. He would be a plus bat there.

You know that dummy that Pirate pitchers were using in preseason to learn how to throw on the inside corner? I fear that Ross Ohlendorf would go 3-2 on that dummy.

Nice play by Pearce. Good! Now let's get some runs.

Ohlendorf, throw strikes!!! My heavens, it looks like he feels that he is up against a combination of the 1927 Yankees, the 1961 Yankees, and the 1979 Buccos.

He is throwing a ton of pitches. His history is that he wears down in the 7th. At this rate, he is not going to last until the 5th.
