Well, who's ready for the inevitable gut punch today? Will it be a fast-regressing Haren allowing multiple home runs and getting bounced in the 4th? Will it be the Noffense? Will it be our zombie bullpen walking in three runs? Will it be because we can't field a full squad after having so many of our players hit and hurt? Will every Dodger batter swing at the first pitch? Will Dodger outfielders switch positions between Pirate at-bats?
These questions and others persist. Yes, as many have pointed out the team still has as many wins as any other team in the NL, but one gets the sense this could start going south quickly, especially with a tough away San Francisco stand due up next.
Also, word is that there may be thunderstorms in the Pittsburgh area this evening, so we'll monitor to see if they can get the game in. In the case it is delayed, please use this space to grouse.
