talk like the pirates

As you may know, September 19th is International Talk Like the Pirates Day, when people around the world are encouraged to spend the day talking like the Pittsburgh Pirates. Last season, the Pirates were visiting the Astros on Talk Like the Pirates Day, which was the Astros misfortune, since the Pittsburgh squad rallied on their holiday and won 7-0. This year the Astros get the Reds on talk like the Pirates day, and the Astros hope they'll play more like the 63-87 Pirates instead of just talking like them.
Regardless of who he chooses to talk like, Aaron Harang is scheduled to pitch for the Reds tonight. He's hit 7 batters this season but never plunked Craig Biggio. Matt Morris is the only pitcher who has plunked Biggio on September 19th, in 2003 for the Cardinals.
