After not being able to watch last night's game at all, I'm probably going to miss the beginning of this one as well, as I have some stuff in Durham to take care of tonight that'll hopefully make its way into a FanHouse post by next week.
After winning an emotional opener last night, the Pirates now have to go out and play another game. Nyjer Morgan is only hitting .600 for one day, Adam LaRoche is only a good April hitter for one day, and Jack Wilson is a hero for one day. Now they all have to go out and do it all over again tonight. Ian Snell gets the start and as always, I'm interested to see exactly what he's got in store for us. There's really nothing he can do that would surprise me.
I'd also like to see Andy LaRoche do something good tonight. I know that usually I can be statistics heavy, but damn, I'd hate to see this guy get in a mental rut after a few bad games and have that wash away his great spring. A hit or two tonight and a nice play in the field could go a long way towards getting his head back on straight after a bad start last night.
