    Things are looking pretty bleak right now but there is a lot of season left. The Pirates get their first scheduled off day today in an amazing 32 days.

    I imagine Taillon will be called up today and make the start. The only question is how exactly this will be accomplished. Cole could go on the DL (seems the most likely) or if he is only going to miss one start (preferable) a reliever could be placed on the DL.

    Cole has been placed on the DL and Jameson Taillon recalled. Taillon will start tonight.

    Pirates are obviously in free fall but if they don't turn it around soon the season very well could be lost. In fact tonight is a great night to start the process. Pretty much the best lineup the Pirates can field is out there tonight behind Taillon.

    John Jaso, 1B
    Andrew McCutchen, CF
    Gregory Polanco, RF
    Starling Marte, LF
    Jung Ho Kang, 3B
    Josh Harrison, 2B
    Jordy Mercer, SS
    Chris Stewart, C
    Jameson Taillon, P

    Marte dinged up from yesterday and Stewart still down so both guys are out of the lineup and Jaso gets a rare day off against a RHP.

    Things are still quite bleak. The team is down to .500 and facing a three game series against the behemoth that is the Cubs. Our ace is out and the rest of our rotation is a mess (though I still hold out hope for Liriano and Niese). Our top two catchers are out and even our third catcher (Stewart) is dealing with injuries. In short things are a mess.

    If there isn't a turn around soon this team is probably going to have consider selling off a couple of its fringe parts come deadline time but fortunately there is still time and today would make a great day to make such a stand. Taking 2 of 3 from the Cubs would be huge but its going to be a tall task. Lets Go Bucs!

    The non-mystery of who will be tonight's starter now officially has the answer we all knew. Wilfredo Boscan was called up and will start tonight. To make room Curtis Partch was sent down. Honestly I'd have preferred they sent down Rondon but the difference at this point is minimal.

    Yesterday was ugly but all you can do about it now is play the game in front of you. The Pirates desperately need to see good Frankie tonight.
