Batter up! Our Pittsburgh Pirates continue their final home series of the season tonight with the Chicago Cubs at PNC Park. These are your keys for tonight's game. 1)Someone call the postman because the Pirates are mailing it in again. Not only did they allow the Nats to celebrate their NL East title on home turf, now they've let the NL Central-winning Cubs boast of winning their 100th game at PNC Park. It was not pretty, either in the 12-2 clobbering. Please always remember and don't ever forget, we will always need more Hit, Run, & Score! 2)Not only have the Bucs bats gone into hibernation but so has the pitching. RH Ryan Vogelsong, 3-6, 4.85 ERA pitches tonight. The Cubs counter with RH John Lackey, 10-8, 3.39 ERA. Mrs. Black-N-Gold realizes that the youngsters of the Pirates staff have been none-too impressive but what is the point of pitching an ineffective Vogey? Again? Are they planning on bringing him back for another swan song next year? Let the kids play! 3)Clearly the only place the Pirates are going at the end of the regular season is the golf course. But for goodness sakes, do you have to make it so painful to watch? Make baseball fun again! Let's Go Bucs!!!!!
