Sorry about that, guys. Bloguin has shifted servers today and I had hoped that the gamethread that I posted went up after the switch, but apparently I pulled the trigger a couple minutes early and the original post got eaten by the internet.
The jist of the post was this: Paul Maholm vs. Dustin Nippert is a game we should win. Really, that was about it. This road trip will get ugly if the Pirates don’t win games like this one. The first pitch is 8:05, Clemente/Cangelosi is after the jump. If you got your comment in before 7:12, it’s gone. I will repost all of the submissions I received in the first comment.
Not sure what this is? Check here and here. Short version: in the comments pick the Pirates you think will be most and least valuable in today’s game. If you haven’t jumped aboard yet, it’s been a lot of fun so far and now’s as good a time as any to join in.
Ross Ohlendorf’s fifth inning flailing was good to several C/Cers. He and Jose Tabata were last night’s Cangelosis, while Bobby Crosby and Ryan Doumit were Clementes. No one moved points in the standings except Ohlendorf, though.
