Oh look. Our trade talk is being interrupted by a GAME!

Out at third!
Out at third!
David Kohl-USA TODAY Sports

Chase Anderson (4-10, 5.44) puts his less-than-stellar first half numbers on the line against Jameson Taillon (2-1, 3.86) of the Bucs. Taillon is fresh off the DL, as noted here.

Coming back to the roster along with Taillon is catcher Francisco Cervelli, one of the whiniest hitters when it comes to ball and strike calls around. I wonder if he's just as whiny when he's catching, but we just can't see or hear it.

The Pirates are having rotation issues. I wonder if they will be watching Junior Guerra closely tomorrow. Sorry! I can't help myself.

Edit: perhaps I should look more closely at the line-ups. Juni G goes tonight. Interesting, no?
