Now HERE'S a team we can beat ... maybe

One of the more depressing aspects of having a brutally awful rotation is going into a series against the equally poor Nationals and having to pray that this four-gamer isn't mortally embarrassing for us as Pirate fans. Tonight the constantly struggling Zukester faces off against the other O. Perez (O is for Odalis this time), which kind of makes me wonder how many teams in history have played Oliver Perez on one day and Odalis the next. I'm guessing not terribly many, but then I don't really have any evidence at all to back that kind of statement up. We'll call it a gut feeling.
