Pirates – Phillies cancelled due to rain

Jenifer Langosch/MLB.com

I obviously picked the wrong game of the two to go to on Sunday as this Pirates-Phillies tilt never started and never will. It started raining minutes before the 1:05 pm start time and with rain in the forecast for the rest of the day, the game was called an hour later.

This really doesn’t mess up too much for the Pirates in terms of pitching. I’m sure D.J. Carrasco will be bummed that he didn’t get a start. But since Ross Ohlendorf is able to pitch in Port Charlotte, the Pirates’ starters are all still on schedule.

Ryan Church will have to wait an extra day to make his return to the lineup. He was expected to play for the first time since last Saturday, which is when he fractured the tip of his left middle finger.

Nothing else much to report here. I’ll file a blog with information from the Port Charlotte contest later in the day once that wraps up.

Pirate trades are looking good. Moss for Bay and Moss just doubled his hit output by getting a second one. Ross Ohlendorf in his start today held Tampa Bay to less than 10 runs in three innings. Plus, to help solidify our chances for another banner losing season, the brains behind the organization, Neil Huntingdon announced that our only hitter, Delvyn Young will start the season on the bench. And, if Young is much more successful we will probably trade him as we do with our good players. Things look poised for a real race for the last spot in the division. Go Bucs!!
