Here we go again

It's Paul Maholm vs. Edinson Volquez tonight as the Reds roll into PNC. If there's one type of pitching that gives the Pirates as much trouble as the journeyman, it's the young firethrower. Volquez is young and while I don't technically know what kind of stuff he has, he's got big minor league strikeout totals and that doesn't bode well, as far as I'm considered? Too early for a soul sucking losing streak? Never for the Pirates!
