    No fooling around this one is BIG. I heard Burnett may pitch the evening game so it may actually be TBA vs Lyons and Burnett vs Lynn but for now like I have it above is how the probable pitchers are listed.

    Some people are calling this the biggest series in PNC Park history but I think that is overstating it a little bit. Last season August 27-29 the Pirates hosted the Cardinals who they were two back of for the final playoff spot. I think due to the fact that series was a month later into the year and that the stakes was playoffs or not as compared to divisional standings means that one trumps this one. However that doesn't mean this series isn't huge.

    No lineup for the Pirates yet I'm curious if there might be a roster move coming. I'm not sure for how long they intend on carrying 3 catchers nut I would imagine it would only be a few days max.

    Well that didn't take long. McKenry has been placed on the 15 day DL and Alex Presley has been recalled.

    Presley joins the team and immediately gives Marte a day off. I can't say it doesn't look like he needs one because it definitely does but still I wished we had our full compliment out there today. Also of interest is Barmes getting another start at short today, might he be winning some playing time back from Mercer? Cardinals are obviously a great team so we need Liriano to be on top of his game tonight.

    1. Jose Tabata (R) RF
    2. Neil Walker (S) 2B
    3. Andrew McCutchen (R) CF
    4. Pedro Alvarez (L) 3B
    5. Russell Martin (R) C
    6. Garrett Jones (L) 1B
    7. Alex Presley (L) LF
    8. Clint Barmes (R) SS
    9. Francisco Liriano (L) P

    And of course ...

    The Bad Guys
    1. Matt Carpenter (L) 2B
    2. Carlos Beltran (S) RF
    3. Matt Holliday (R) LF
    4. Allen Craig (R) 1B
    5. Yadier Molina (R) C
    6. David Freese (R) 3B
    7. Shane Robinson (R) CF
    8. Pete Kozma (R) SS
    9. Jake Westbrook (R) P

    Ew the lineup today is ugly. Presley, Tabata and Barmes all in the lineup makes me sad. At least Liriano is pitching, he's going to need a good outing. He's not going to be getting a lot of run support.

    Cardinals are swapping Lynn and Lyons so its now Burnett vs Lynn and TBA vs Lyons. The TBA will likely be a call up. Cumpton would be the obvious answer but Kris Johnson and Stolmy Pimentel are also in the conversation.

    I'm sure Hurdle has his eye on righty/lefty matchups. Tabata and Barmes both do alright against righties. The gap offensively between Barmes and Mercer this year against them isn't too huge. For his career Presley has hit righties as good, if not better, than Marte has. The splits for Marte this year are incredibly drastic; he really actually isn't a good hitter against RHP...at least he hasn't been this year. I'm alright with giving Marte that day off that he probably needs.

    It could be worse.
    I no longer care about anything here except for the Entertainment Forum, which sucks; the Music forum, which sucks; and the Magic forum, which does NOT suck.

    Love y'all!

    I'll just post this here, since there's no injury thread. Grilli's flexor injury is not tendon related, it's completely muscular. Cuts down the recovery time significantly.

    That is indeed good news. A muscle strain is going to heal quicker than a comparable level tendon strain 10 times out of 10.
