A ten game losing streak is looming

Having the struggling Jeff Karstens face off against CC Sabathia isn't exactly a perfect way to end a nine-game losing streak. CC didn't look all that great against the Pirates last week, but it shouldn't take much to shut-down the anemic offense that has the team, as per DK, taking full batting practice before a Sunday afternoon game. Bone Crusher Moss and Nate McLouth are the only left-handed hitters in the lineup today, which means that Chris Gomez is staring at first base, Jack Wilson is batting lead-off, and Jason Michaels is batting cleanup. Which means that John Russell is punting today.
