This game will take at least four hours

Interesting subplot to the game tonight; the Cubs were going to scratch Rich Hill for Jason Marquis because of the way we've been hitting lefties lately or something like that. Then Jason Marquis felt sick, so they're going to start Hill anyways. Don't they know we're the Pirates?

This is a legitimately terrifying situation for the Pirates tonight. Their bullpen has been run into the ground during this first week of the season, but MATT MORRIS is on the mound for us tonight. If he doesn't get through at least six, we're probably completely screwed in this one. Relying that much on Matt Morris is not a recipe for success, unless he's starting against the Pirates. But hey, at least people will show up to the park tonight. Maybe.
