Let's play two... well, kind of

The Pirates and Cubs get to finish this series up today at 12:35 when they resume the game that should already be in the books as a Pirates win except for the bullpen meltdown in the bottom of the seventh. The Cubs played an awful game to that point in which they proved that they had no clue how to actually field a bunt, but because we're the Pirates we only managed to score five runs (the game should be at least 6-6 but no one taught Tony Armas how to slide into home plate).

The second one is supposed to kick off a half hour after the first one ends and it'll feature Ian Snell and Jason Marquis on the mound. Marquis got a 3 year $21 million contract that everyone laughed at this off-season, but he's been almost as good as Lily and Hill to this point in the year. He's 3-1 with a 2.35 ERA and a 1.17 WHIP. Clearly, something is eventually going to give here. Ian Snell will take the mound for us and I don't have to tell you how he's pitched this year. I do, however, have something to say to Ian.

You're a mean one, Ian Snell.
You really are a heel.
You're as cuddly as a cactus,
You're as charming as an eel.
Ian Snell.
Let's win two today. Neither one is on TV but feel free to put it on the radio and talk here.
