Pirates vs. Cardinals 4/9

Home opener at PNC Park in Pittsburgh today. Cold, cold, cold.

Braden Looper (0-1, 4.50) vs. Ian Snell (0-0, 3.00)

Here's the box. Chris Duffy returns to the leadoff position. Freddy Sanchez moves to third and the slumping Ronny Paulino, who has just five total bases in his first 23 at bats, moves down to seventh.

Here are some links while you wait for the game to start:

-P- Jim Tracy says some things. They all make sense. Bucs Dugout doesn't understand how this is possible.

-P- From the Onion, Jose Bautista was pretty proud of his double on opening night. (WTM: "Funny how the Pirates get more attention from The Onion than they do from ESPN.")

-P- Thanks to the Post-Gazette for the link today.

-P- Thoughts of RS has closely watched the Hickory Crawdads' series in Hagerstown.
