BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO!!! Pirates games are blacked out on MLB Extra Innings here in Buffalo.

i hope that Detwiler dominates in his debut, we really need a morale boost.

This is a HUGE series.  The Pirates should be one of those teams in contention for the #1 pick next year.  We totally need to get swept here.

I know its never good to expect the Nats to win... but I would be disappointed if we don't take 3 of 4 from the Pirates.

These are games we should win, regardless of how crappy the pen is.

Here's what I'm expecting for the series:

1 game where Pitts' pitching shuts down our bats. 
1 game where our offense puts up a bazillion runs
1 game where the bullpen gacks it up
1 game where the bullpen hangs on by the skin of their teeth because the Pirates fail to execute offensively.

Split series.  We continue to play .500 ball vs. teams not in the NL East.

Heres what I see this series:

We sweep every game winning by 5, 4 quality starts, including 7 ip 0r 3h 2bb 5k 0.00 ERA for Detwiler. Our bullpen magically finds their ways and allow no runs after pitching 8 innings total in this series. Adam Dunn blasts 3 homers, Zimmerman has 4 doubles, Nick Johnson and Guzman combine 14 runs...


Yea, only in my world.

My Detwiler prediction: 5 innings, 2 ER, 5 hits, 2 walks, 3 K.

no

here's hoping for six scoreless fanning 8 before going down, followed by Manny insisting that Cabera is showing positive signs.

I hope he does well but I wouldn't expect a whole lot at this point. He's having a good start to the AA season but he still needs more work. Hopefully he goes 5-6 innings and gives us a chance to win.
