Another shot for Gorzo

Tom Gorzelanny gets another chance to prove to us that the spring was nothing to worry about tonight against career minor leaguer Randy Keisler, the Cards fill-in for Chris Carpenter tonight. I know it's early, but this is an important game for the Pirates and here's why: good teams don't lose lots of games in a row. If we lose tonight, it'll be four out of five. That morphs into, say 21 of 25 or 60 of 90 before you know what happened. Perhaps I'm being dramatic, but one of the things I hate the most about the pathetic Pirates of recent years is the loooong stretches of bad baseball, the sweeps by the Royals, the 13 game losing streaks, the 30-60 first halves, the 21 losses in 25 games. It's just plain depressing and even if we aren't a good team this year, it'd be great if we could cut down on the depressing baseball.

Anyways, yes, I'm crazy and I'll be back out in the cold tonight to watch a pitching match-up that could make for a looong evening, but as usual feel free to discuss in the comments.
