COMMENTS: Listen up, yinz guys! The Dodgers, with Manny and Lowe n'at, play game two of the four-game series today at PNC Park. Pirates fans have been in poor hap since Willie Stargell stopped spreading some chicken on the hill, but we Dodger fans don't mean to jag ya', even when you're serving up taters to Juan Pierre of all people. We'll keep our neb-noses out of it and refrain from the slippy slope of disparaging comments. What? You're mildly offended already? Get aht!
