Snell to avoid the sweep

It's up to Ian Snell to pull the Pirates out of the funk they're in this afternoon, as he gets the start to try and avoid starting this long home stand out with a sweep. He started on Mothers' Day last year too, and got lit up by the Marlins and their pink bats. It was Snell's last bad start for a long while in 2006 if I remember correctly. He hasn't had a bad one this year and now would certainly be a bad time for him to start. The Braves will start Anthony Lerew who I honestly know very little about and don't feel like looking up at the moment because here's what's going to happen: he's probably going to have the best start of his young career today. That's just what the Pirates do to people. Anyways, I've got an insult for Ian Snell before I post this thing up:

Hey, Ian! You just aren't good enough to win games with the Pirate offense. If you win ten games this year, I'll be shocked! No excuses, Tom Gorzelanny has four wins, where are yours?

And of course, happy Mothers' Day to all the moms out there!
