A potential shootout

Ian Snell looks to keep moving past his arm trouble and back towards productiveness tonight against the Rockies, who are sending Glendon Rusch out against him. That's right. Glendon Rusche is still in baseball. If it seems like he's made a million starts against the Pirates in his career, it's because he has. He's faced us 24 times in 15 starts. He's also a guy we've beaten up pretty good on throughout his career (he's 2-7 with a 4.45 ERA against us). He's been terrible this year and we should probably beat up on him pretty well tonight. If Snell doesn't bring his A game (Ian Snell insult of the night: HEY, Ian ... do you even still HAVE an A game???) we could have a shootout on our hands tonight. Of course, I'm going to see The Dark Knight, so I won't see it either way.
