Its the dog days of summer and we cant afford to get swept in Pittsburgh.Do y'all remember our big trip to Pittsburgh late last summer? It was a five game series. We arrived in Pittsburgh with a 1.5 game division lead and we left with a 1.5 game deficit. The series started off with Pittsburgh taking a 4-0 lead before Jake Westbrook even recorded an out and it stayed ugly until the last game of the series where we exploded for a 13-0 win.Despite the disaster in Pittsburgh we then went to Cincinnati to outscore the Reds 31-13 over three games. If you count the last Pittsburgh game we had outscored the two other division contenders by a total of 44-13. We also still managed to win the division despite that nightmare in Steel City, which really had left me gutted and hopeless at the time.

San Diego and then San Francisco. Hopefully the Padres can duplicate what they did to us and the Reds when we were out there.This series worries me. The Pirates have a chance to make some hay here. Its the dog days of summer and we cant afford to get swept in Pittsburgh.Rat
