View Full Version : A few Pirates tidbits

From this morning's Post-Gazette.

Freddy Sanchez will come off the DL tomorrow & might join the team in Cinci.
Griffey & Dunn are a combined 4 for 29 with zero HRs against tonight's starter (Maholm).
If Sanchez does play, he killed Reds pitching last year...going 26 for 59 and a .441 average.

I've been getting **** all week up here about this series. Yesterday my manager asked me, "So, Justin....the Reds and Pirates play this weekend. Who are you going to root for?"

So, I paused for a few seconds...looked at him...and said, "the correct answer to that question would be........

....... THE REDS! "

Haha, he laughed and teased me a bit more. Come on Reds! You have to win this series or I won't hear the end of it!

I think the Pirates have one of the best uniforms in all of baseball.

so that's a tidbit, i guess

Didn't we hit Maholm pretty good last year?

From MLB.com's game preview:

Pitching matchup
CIN: RHP Matt Belisle (2-0, 3.60 ERA in 2006)
Belisle is 3-1 with a 4.43 ERA in 13 games, including one start, lifetime against Pittsburgh.

PIT: LHP Paul Maholm (8-10, 4.76 ERA in 2006)
The lefty was 1-1 with a 6.29 ERA in four starts against Cincinnati last season.

Player to watch
Catcher David Ross was 3-for-5 with two home runs and five RBIs last season against Maholm.
