Yankees @ Pirates 3/1/2011

Today the Pirates take on the villainous, small market hating, New York Yankees at McKechnie Field. Game time is at 1:05.


1. Alex Presley CF
2. John Bowker LF
3. Matt Diaz RF
4. Garrett Jones DH
5. Garrett Atkins 1B
6. Andy Marte 3B
7. Chris Snyder C
8. Josh Rodriguez 2B
9. Pedro Ciriaco SS

That lineup is fringe-city. Half of that lineup could easily not make the team. Interesting note this marks Rodriguez's second start of the season, speedy Corey Wimberly has only started once, and it was as at 2B against the Manatees.


James McDonald
Aaron Thompson
Daniel McCutchen
Chris Resop
Daniel Moskos
Ramon Aguero

Daniel McCutchen looks to rebound after his three ER performance last time out.

Some bad news out of Pirates camp as well as Joe Beimel was once again shutdown due to soreness in his forearm. He will be getting an MRI in the next few days, but two days of arm pain is never good. The Pirates have no other lefty relievers so this opens up a spot for a young guy like Danny Moskos, or Scott Olsen if he washes out as a starter.
