Johnny Cueto (5-2, 2.82) vs. Francisco Liriano (16-8, 3.02).
The Pirates got home field for this sudden death playoff game by sweeping the Reds to end the season. Winner goes on to play the St. Louis Cardinals, yet another divisional rival. But I look at that Eastpoint, FL logo, and all I am is hungry.
One player I'm not hungry to see is former Dodger Russell Martin, whose exile to Pittsburgh after playing most of his MLB career in large markets has turned out pretty well for him, all things considered. The Pirates are a special story, nabbing their first winning season since 1992 thanks in part to Martin's arm, if not his imposing .226 BA. But it would be difficult to root for Andrew McCutcheon and even former Dodger James McDonald...if not for the fact that Dusty Baker is helming the other team. Sigh.
