shiver me timbers, Pirates on talk like a pirate day
The Astros carved out a 1.5 game lead in the wild card race over the weekend, and are rewarded with a trip to play 4 games against the worst team in the leauge at Pittsburgh. Craig Biggio was not hit by a pitch all weekend, but maybe the winds off the river at PNC park will be blowing from the lefthanded batters box to the right.
Matt Morris hit Craig Biggio with a pitch on September 19, 2003.
Also, by coincidence, today's visit to Pittsburgh coincides with international talk like a pirate day. You might not have been able to tell, but this entire post has been written like a Pirate - although I couldn't find many examples of the writings of Pirates all time plunk leader Jason Kendall.
