Do or die
The Pirates kick off a nine-game homestand against the Astros tonight at 7:05. We will see only NL Central Division opponents from now through May 10th, which means we are entering a pretty important stretch. A hot streak could throw the Bucs right into the middle of a division race, the opposite could have us eliminated by June. Paul Maholm will start tonight against Woody Williams. With the way these two have pitched, we could very easily see a 10-7 final. Or the Pirates might win 1-0, what the hell do I know? Our Bucs were able to regain a small bit of momentum with Sunday's victory, and hope to bring some confidence back east. The home crowd will be itching to see a victory, as the team is 0-4 at PNC Park this year.
