Intraleague play can be fun too

While the whole league is off having fun with their natural rivals, we get to host the Diamondbacks here in Pittsburgh. I think this whole interleague stuff is a bunch of shit, to be honest, and I don't really care for it. Maybe if baseball had a clue, I'd be a little more predisposed towards it. Tonight, Mach Snell and Doug Davis face off in the only game that falls under the "NL Games" category.
Davis is certainly familiar having spent the past few years with the Brewers. He's pretty blah against the Pirates with a 5-4 record in 16 starts. Interestingly, the Pirates draw like 4.5 walks/9 innings against Davis. That's a pretty astronomical number for a team as impatient as a hungry 2-year old.

Tonight's Ian Snell insult is Dr. Cox inspired:

Dammit Ian, are you a real pitcher, or are you a pitcher like a pitcher of water is a pitcher?
