the pirates, utilizing perhaps the most awkward lineup i've seen since i began fantasy in 2001, have tagged jesse "jesus" foppert for 5 runs in 4 innings.
our lord and savior's line: 100 pitches, 4 IP, 5 H, 5 ER, 4 BB, 3 K
and to think, people were going to drop solid proven players to acquire this kid. shrug. say what you want about prior and the parallels, but his first game was like, 6 IP, 2 ER, 10 K, 1 or 2 BB, and like 4-5 H against these same pirates.
well it ake that back, they had armando rios.
speaking of the pirates lineup, check this out:
randall simon - 1b
reggie sanders - LF
pokey reese - 2B
jack wilson - SS
jeff suppan - P
kenny lofton - CF
jason kendall - C
matt stairs - RF
aramis ramirez - 3b
its possible that cbs.sportsline.com just goofed and botched the entry of hte lineup tho.
but still, IT'S FOPPERTMANIA RUNNING WILD!
