Monday's Pirates-Braves game to be on ESPN

 

Great news for the Pirates and about time they get a national game. This series could have major playoff implications as the Pirates could either get ourselves into the wild card race (we are currently 6 games back of the Braves) or dig ourselves into such a hole that the NL Central would be our only hope.

It should be an awesome game. Hopefully McDonald brings his "A" game and rewards Hurdle for his continued praise and patience. Tim Hudson is going to be tough though.

 

Too bad it will be blacked out for people in the Pittsburgh area. I will definitely watch the ESPN broadcast, even if it means not watching Walk, Brown and the guys from Root sports - who, as always, have done a remarkable job this year. I guess the only thing that will suck about the ESPN coverage is they'll undoubtedly make a ton of references to the early 90s and show the dreaded 1992 NLCS Game 7 footage.

 

If we continue to win, there will undoubtedly be more of this to follow. The Pirates are currently being considered for ESPN Sunday Night Baseball and the Fox Sports Saturday Game of the Week.
