The Cards have been very underwhelming so far this year so it will be interesting to see how we look after that huge weekend. Our best pitcher going in game 1. Polanco still out with his groin issue. Lucky break on our end though with Carpenter sitting with a cut on his right hand.

Actually there's a ton of guys missing from the Cards lineup. Molina, Carpenter, Gyorko, and Peralta

This has all the makings of a let down game. We'll see.

And someone like their journeyman minor leaguer at 1B just seems like a guy that goes 3/4 with a HR.

Their little Chinaman jagoff SumTing always kills the Pirates. The Pirates need to get their Chinaman.back.

Josh Harrison has been hit in 4 straight plate appearances. That's insane.

I dunno. For whatever reason, this lineup looks better to me than it did at the start of the year. (Which is an odd thing to say while they're being shut out.)

But they absolutely somehow need somebody to step up and provide some power from the middle of the lineup. As it stands now, I'm not sure if anyone outside of Polanco eclipses the 20 HR mark this year.

Nova is fucking dealing right now. One of those games where somebody is going to have to step up to get his back. Still 1-0.

Nova, Taillon and Kuhl are keeping us in these games.

As focused as we were on pitching this offseason, the offense is a problem.

If there's one positive to think of Ivan Nova 70 pitches after 7

He could end up pitching an 8 inning complete games giving the bullpen the rest for tonight.

Never underestimate the worst offense in baseball, and their ability to suck.

Does he get credit for a complete game though. Let's say he were pitching a no-hitter and losing 2-0. If he only pitched eight innings, he would get credit for a no-hitter.
