I'm back online!

OK, I'm back in business with the internet after two long days without it. The Pirates lost yesterday and that gives them their second 3-game losing streak of the early season. I think that might be some kind of record, but then I doubt "number of three-game losing streaks
before May 1st" is something that people really keep track of. Tom Gorzelanny takes the mound today, trying to break out of his early season funk against Jason Marquis, who hasn't been very good this year or ever and is pretty mediocre career-wise against the Pirates. Those numbers don't account for this year's Cubs early dominance against the Pirates, which has to be working in his favor. This game is on in Pittsburgh and Chicago, but not anywhere else because Major League Baseball is a jerk about their Saturday blackout rules.
