Ah, the good old days

Amidst the swirling montage of rumors and innuendo, the Brewers send The Count, Matt Garza (1-3, 5.74) against the Pirates' Francisco Liriano (5-9, 5.11). I know there is irony in my saying that the Pirates' rotation needs some serious help if they intend on contending, but, you know, the Pirates' rotation needs some serious help if they intend on contending.
