Another afternoon game

Let's see, it's Thursday afternoon and two crappy baseball teams are playing in a different city today than they will be tomorrow. That can only mean one thing: afternoon game!

Tom Gorzelanny and Jason Bergman are set to go at it in about 15 minutes here, with Gorzo hoping to take advantage of the Nationals' historic ineptitude at the plate in the way that Ian Snell did last night. His opponent got the tar beaten out of him in his last start by the offense challenged Giants. If the Pirates win today, they'll have a chance to get to .500 in Baltimore this weekend, where I'll hopefully be in attendance Saturday. I'm both all for that and completely sure that it won't happen now that I've mentioned it.
