The Pirates struggle against their division opponents. That isn’t a good sign. Especially in the National League Central. The division sucks. So far.
Won 6-4, John Grabow got the decision
Loss 3-9, Ian Snell before he became the star of AAA
Won 7-4, Zach Duke got the win and the All-Star buzz was on.
Loss 1-2, Ross Ohlendorf was hard luck loser
Won 10-2, Paul Maholm before the groin was tweaked
Loss 0-2, Snell was out dueled by Aaron Harang
