Leadership, and No Richards?

The Battlin' Bucs will be taking on the defending World Series Champs tonight at PNC Park. Ross Ohlendorf will be going for the Pirates, and to many people's surprise the Dorfer has been pitching really well for the Pirates this season. He has a team high 11 wins and only a 4.15 ERA and is second on the team, behind Zach Duke, with 15 quality starts. Solid numbers in only 24 starts. Over his last 10 starts he is 5-2 with three no-decisions and has seven quality starts in those last ten games. Lookin really good for the Dorfer recently. Gives some hope for him to be here in the future and looks like a solid three or four guy in the rotation if we can every get a shut down guy like the Giants have (they actually have two, hey SF can we have one please?).

Ronny Cedeno will be back in the Pirates lineup after missing a few games with a fracture in his finger. Thank God Blixer will not be in the lineup. Hell, if Bixler is going to play I can go out there and strike out.

The Pirates will be sending a good bit of players to the Arizona Fall League.

Sid is the top Canadian at the Olympic camp so far says the NHL. How does Mike Richards not get this, his leadership dominates everyone's.

That's it for now. Probably be back after the game.

Go Bucs.
