The Pirates won their opener today!!!! They beat the Astros 4-2. When McLouth came in to pinch hit, I looked at Ryan and said “why the hell would they put Duffy-Lite in right now?” He responded by hitting a home run. Oops.
The team looked pretty bad early offensively, fortunately the defense played great and Duke did not walk anyone, which was a plus. Bay seems like he is finally going to start seeing strikes with LaRoche hitting behind him. He needs to capitalize, and LaRoche needs to not strike out 4 times.
I have decided that at the end of the week, I will give you a recap of my fantasy team, and how they are doing. I know none of you really care, but it will be fun.
