Blogging the Pirates and the Steelers since 1904.
Latos and Karstens at seven.
This winning streak that ends in April has had more texture and drama than I expected.
Maholm and Correia at seven.
I'd be entertained if all the Bucs, including JR, grew in dreadlocks and got huge tattoos. The tattoo parlor visit would make for a hilarious clip on the World Championship DVD.
Ohlendorf and Gallardo at seven.
It's amazing to think that come next April, there could be an entire generation of young Bucco fans who have never experienced a loss. Without losses, would wins still have meaning?
Duke and Wolf at seven.
With the Kratzalyst calling pitches and stealing signs and Pedro hitting multiple dingers per game, this winning streak could easily continue through next April.
Lincoln and Bush. Four score and seven years ago, a thousand points of light.
I don't want to get anyone's hopes up, but it is easy to believe that this game might be the start of a winning streak that ends in October.
Karstens and Capuano at seven.
Macha should worry less about his small-market hapless players getting plunked, and more about getting absolutely boat-raced by the white-hot Bucs on Kratzmas III. Prepare to untuck.
Maholm and Oswalt at 1:35.
To enhance drama for the 2010 World Champs DVD, JR might want to rest the Kratzalyst for at least the first few innings of Kratzmas II.
