It’s Opening Day for the 138th season of Pittsburgh Pirates baseball (Don’t trust anyone who says 133 seasons because they don’t include the American Association). The Pittsburgh Pirates (0-0) take on the Cincinnati Reds (0-0) at Great American Ballpark at 4:10 PM today. The Pirates set their Opening Day roster earlier today with a plethora of transactions. Jameson Taillon will be on the mound this afternoon, going up against his mound opponent, right-hander Luis Castillo.
