Open Thread: Game 80, Pittsburgh (34-44) at Milwaukee (37-42)

The Series continues as Pittsburgh sends the prize of their minor league system (Zach Duke, 0-0, 0.00) into Miller Park for his 1st career MLB start vs Victor Santos (2-8, 3.27)

Called up to replace the injured Oliver Perez, Zach Duke was 12-3 with a 2.92 ERA in 16 starts at Indianapolis, and was leading the International League in wins and innings pitched. A year ago, he led all minor league pitchers with a 1.46 ERA. Duke is 6-2 210 and throws and bats lefthanded.

What a fun game last night's was to watch. I think Rickie Weeks, when his career is finished, will end up in the Hall of Fame.  THERE, I SAID IT... I think he is that good ...
