Well, after a huge breath of fresh air in Milwaukee, the Pirates head further west to take on the slumping Dodgers in the first 4-game series of the year.  The Dodgers have lost 4 in a row and 8 of their last 10.  All I can say is keep them reeling and deliver a knockout punch.  Realistically, this Dodgers team is not as bad as their record indicates right now, and taking 2 games here would be a big victory for the Pirates.

Expected Pitching Matchups

April 29: Brian Burres (0-1-2) vs. Clayton Kershaw (1-0-3)
April 30: Charlie Morton (0-4-0) vs. Chad Billingsley (1-1-2)
May 1: Zach Duke (2-2-1) vs. Charlie Haeger (0-3-2)
May 2: Jeff Karstens (0-0-1) vs. Hiroki Kurada (2-1-1)

This might be the last chance for Charlie Morton.  One more nightmare start for him and he's down to AAA.

Proposed Lineups

1-R. Martin C
2-G. Anderson LF
3-M. Kemp CF
4-A. Ethier RF
5-C. Blake 3B
6-J. Loney 1B
