    Happy birthday, but you know we're going to blame you if the winning streak ends for starting a thread with no lineup.

    Well if they lose, no more birthdays for you (though events on saturday may take of that for all of us, so I hear). A lot of pressure


    Happy B-day by the way.

    Charlie Morton on the bump for the Pirates today. Say what you will about the guy, but THIS YEAR, he's pitching VERY well.

    4-1, 3.13 era

    And lets not forget the last time he faced us. Complete game 5 hits, 1 run. Please, let's NOT take the Pirates lightly. I know their history too...but THIS version of the Buccos are competitive. We play solidly though and we should take care of business. Get it done boys!

    This version of them is better, but they are not competitive. Still probably going to lose 90 games, and have lost 6 in a row.

    At least Gomes remains in the lineup.
    "Since I've been with the Reds in 1989, we've never had a farm system this loaded," Bowden said. "If we were the New York Yankees and had unlimited dollars, we could have traded for Colon, (Jeff) Weaver, Rolen, (Cliff) Floyd, (Kenny) Rogers and Finley and gotten them all -- and still held onto our top five prospects. That's an amazing statement."

    Lost 6 in a row right after they won 6 out of 8. I'm not trying to make excuses or anything...just saying don't overlook them...it'll come back and bite us.

    It seems like anytime the Pirates meet the Brewers they get swept. I wasn't surprised that they went on a losing streak. Brew crew have really got their number for some reason.
