A split would be nice

Zach Duke and Scott Olsen will try and take the mound tonight in the third game of our four game set against the Marlins tonight, weather permitting.

Assuming this one does happen, the Pirates will be looking to lock the series split up in three games and let's face it, it would be nice to at least split a series with a team that's pretty similarly talented to us. Of course, lots of things would be nice and we never get them, so whatever. The lineup's already up and there's no Ryan Doumit in it, which is pretty damn mystifying from where I'm sitting (which is my couch) even with the lefty Olsen on the mound. Castillo starts again at third where he gave us one hell of a webgem last night. If only he could hit consistently. I think I'd like that.
