Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Charlie Morton vs. Jason Hammel at eight. Monroe has been designated for assignment, and Pearce called up.
Ohlendorf vs. Marquis and Jim Tracy at nine. If you're not entertained by that, try Wilbur's 2009 draft notes.
Duke and Blackburn at one. Until then there's Cutch's first jack.
Ian Snell vs. the mound, his teammates, his coaches, Randy Marsh, and the entire world, which includes Francisco Liriano.
Maholm vs. Perkins at eight. The Twins are 32-33 and in second place. With the Brewers win yesterday, this is a must-win game for the Bucs.
Four games out, the Bucs have the day off to rest up for their inevitable World Series surge. Playoff odds at 10%.
Ohlendorf vs. Dontrelle at 1:35. The Bucs are only five games back.
