So, I'll ask:

Is that the worst lineup ever submitted for an interleague game? It's in the running, right? Josh Harrison as a DH? Three position players hitting under .170? Two other guys hitting under .220? A first baseman with zero home runs through May 17th?

Awful. Just awful. This is going to be painful to watch.

That said...

Let's Go Bucs!

Someone tell Charlie Morton batting practice is before the game starts.

So this is what a Little League team looks like facing a Professional MLB Pitcher? :roll:

Nah, a bloop single by McLouth will break it up next inning.

Pinch hit Gorkys for McKenry and hope he can beat one out...
Last time the Pirates were no hit was 1971?!

Pirates have not been no-hit since 1971, so at least we have that going for us.
