Pirates To Nationals: Well, Uh, We’ve Got Young Players Too! So, Yeah!

One day after the big Stephen Strasburg deeliemadoo (that’s baby talk for massacre), the Pirates have called up 2 of their top 3 AAA prospects, pitcher Brad Lincoln and outfielder Jose Tabata, and both of them are starting against the Nationals tonight:

Pirates Lineup vs. Nationals, 6/9/10:

1. Jose Tabata, LF
2. Neil Walker, 2B
3. Andrew McCutchen, CF
4. Garrett Jones, 1B
5. Andy LaRoche, 3B
6. Lastings Milledge, RF
7. Ronny Cedeno, SS
8. Jason Jaramillo, C
9. Brad Lincoln, P

YEAHHH!!!! Take that, Nationals! You may have a multigenerational superphenom, but we’ve got a passable right handed starting pitcher who’s mostly back from Tommy John surgery and a speedy outfielder with three homers in AAA this year! If we dismember both players and Frankenstein the best parts of them together, it might actually garner something resembling the attention of the Strasburg debut, if only because that would be murder and a story about the Pirates murdering two top prospects and sewing them together would get a lot of attention.

14 strikeouts? Pish posh. I’ll take 4 strikeouts and 1-for-4 with one steal any day of the week. On OPPOSITE WEEK! Crap, didn’t mean to give away to the Nationals that it was Opposite Week in that example, I was trying to intimidate them. Abort!
