Gameday Thread, #5: 4/10 vs Pirates


Daniel McCutchen
RHP, 0-0, 0.00


Dan Haren
RHP, 1-0, 1.29

We're going to play a very short game of Baseball Mad Libs tonight because, well, I'm writing this two days early and cannot yet see the future. It will not be as good as Azreous' absolutely fabulous Leo, King of the Bungle rendition, but it'll have to do.

After last night's fantastic win | loss] to the Pirates, the Diamondbacks now try to go for a 3-game win streak | reclaim some respectability]. Arizona Ace Dan Haren faces Pirates' #5 Daniel McCutchen (no relation to speedy outfielder McCutchen), whose only taste of the big leagues was six games last year as a September call-up (called up in August). Welcome to The Show, now go face a three-time All Star.

Arizona did awesome | poorly] last night against [starter Charlie Morton | the Pirates bullpen], so let's hope they can continue that trend | 'buc' that trend right away]. On the flip side, [Danny should just try to keep them in the yard], [the defense needs to stop thinking it's 2008], [Miggy has got to stop runners from stealing]. It doesn't look like there was a flip side. Awesome game last night, let's do it again, boys!

hotclaws gets her first crack at a recap tonight (or rather, this morning, for her). [Note for any of the editors: I don't know if I'll be able to write something in Sunday's GDT tomorrow/tonight, so anybody is welcome to edit it!]
