Jordan Zimmermann (1-0, 0.00)

After seven shutout innings against the Yankees in his Tigers debut, Zimmermann returns to National League territory. He's pitched only once at PNC Park as a National, allowing four runs over six innings in a defeat in 2014.

Garrit Cole (0-1, 5.97)

Cole admitted to being "a little rusty" in his first competitive game since October, allowing three runs over 4 2/3 innings against the Reds on Saturday. He was 1-0 with a 2.13 ERA in two starts against Detroit last season.

I don't have an official bucket list.  But if I did, PNC Park would be on it.

Its a small bucket.  Just a few things in it before kicking it.

Don't mind today's lineup. Backup C has to play on a day after night game. Collins/Gose a wash, give Iggy a day off.

Anyone recall this Cole vs Verlander matchup from last season that featured some hit batters?

Verlander was struggling with his control.  He happened to hit Marte on a 1-2 pitch with a runner on 1st and 2 out in the 4th trailing 3-0.  Cheese **** Cole drilled VMartinez up and in, clearly intentionally, in the bottom of the inning (Cabrera was the leadoff hitter this inning).  Verlander promptly returned the favor and got Alvarez on the leg in the top of the 5th.  I lost a lot of respect for Cole that day and have been wondering if we might ever see retribution for this at some point.

 Is this some special day or do the Pirates wear camo a lot?

Ah, every Thursday is Military Appreciation Day. Why not green on Thursdays?

We're playing a one-game series against the Phillies this year? What the...?

They actually play a three-game set against the Phillies in Detroit May 23 24th and 25th, but there is no complementing away series against the Phillies.  That is really odd, as I recall, in terms of how these things usually work.

Oh, okay... thanks. The game notes above must be wrong. They say one game against the Phillies.

Thought the Pirates had a good look at a challenge there.  Not sure why you'd ever pass up a chance to get Miggy up with the bases clear...

I don't think that I've ever seen a pitcher throw to an unoccupied first base.   That was priceless.........FWIW, the throw went right over the bag.
