Moyer and Maholm at seven. Skyblast again, so I expect a full house with lots of fans arriving around the eighth inning.

Durbin and Gorzelanny at seven.
Durbin has been in the bullpen, and he's not expected to go too many innings tonight.
Coming off a shutout, Gorzelanny is due to get bombed. I'm hoping he's better than that, but I've developed that expectation over the years. It seems to me that a lot of starters get blown out in starts after the All-Star game and starts after complete-game shutouts.
Dejan Kovacevic's P-G notebook has something to say about Littlefield's contract extension, Jack Wilson clearing waivers, and that prospect guy who wanted "$10 million and a major-league contract." (The nerve of that guy ... thinking the Pirates have $10M in payroll to throw away.)
