Game 48: Dodgers at Pirates

The Brandon Cumpton Era starts today against Kershaw and the hapless Dodgers. Cumpton has a strong pedigree, successfully bunting in every third plate appearance for Altoona last year.

The Dodgers start Juan Uribe at 3B, and the Bucs counter with Inge batting 8th starting in RF. Are you not entertained?

Game 45: Giants at Pirates

The Gerrit Cole Era begins tonight, with Cole making his debut against the Freak at seven. Prepare to be entertained.

Many questions about Cole remain, not the least of which is whether young Gerrit can gently yet firmly make contact with his bat on a baseball, driving the baseball into the infield grass while advancing a base runner from station to station.

Game 44: Pirates at Cubs

Pirates will entertain the small-market fans of Chicago today.

They can expect to see some bunting, some sacrifice flies (unless the wind is blowing out), a HBP or two, and a bunch of strikeouts.

Locke and Jackson at 2.
