Cueto and Snell

If Ian Snell's planning on getting back on track at all before the season ends, tonight against the Reds would be a good time to start it. We've documented the Reds' struggles already, but there's a nice chance tonight as the Pirates have had some luck against Reds' starter Johnny Cueto this year and they're getting Adam LaRoche back from the disabled list to hopefully provide a spark. That means that our modern Big Poison/Little Poison will be in effect tonight and might even bat back-to-back, depending on what JR wants to do with the lineup. There'll be a full crowd there tonight, but it's going to be there for REO Speedwagon and not the Pirates. That's right, REO Speedwagon apparently still exists. Where's Donny Iris?
