Gameday Thread, #32: 5/8 vs. Pirates

Wells (2-3, 4.91)
Halsey (2-0, 3.09)

[Today's game preview will be done in the style of Marvin the Paranoid Android, from The Hitchhiker's Guide to the Galaxy]

I could talk about yesterday's game for a bit, but it would only depress me. I mean, two hits against one of the worst teams in the NL? Here I am, brain the size of a planet, but does anybody listen to me when I tell them that McCracken should be serving fries in McDonald's?

And it doesn't look like it's going to be any better today. The Pirates are already 2-0 up and it's only the second innings; Halsey has given up a home run. The good news, if you can call it that, is Clayton and McCracken (the C+M Out Machine, as I like to call them) have been benched today. Will that help? I doubt it.

I expect we'll lose this one. Then we've got the Nationals coming to town. Did I mention they swept us last time we played them? And the time before that too. Oh, and the time before that too. I'm not getting you down, am I?

Life, don't talk to me about life...
