Pirates Game Discussion: Pirates at Cubs, 8:05 PM

The Pittsburgh Pirates (6-7) take on the Chicago Cubs (6-7) in the second game of a four-game series at Wrigley Field on Friday night. This was originally supposed to be a 2:20 PM start, but early this morning the teams decided to move it to a night game due to rain, which was supposed to continue on through until 5 PM. Jose Quintana (0-1, 3.86) makes his third start, going up against veteran lefty Drew Smyly (1-0, 0.00), who is also making his third start. He has not allowed a run in 9.2 innings this season.

The Pirates made some roster moves before the game, adding Anthony Alford and optioning Hoy Park.

Here are the lineups:

John started working at Pirates Prospects in 2009, but his connection to the Pittsburgh Pirates started exactly 100 years earlier when Dots Miller debuted for the 1909 World Series champions. John was born in Kearny, NJ, two blocks from the house where Dots Miller grew up. From that hometown hero connection came a love of Pirates history, as well as the sport of baseball.

When he didn't make it as a lefty pitcher with an 80+ MPH fastball and a slider that needed work, John turned to covering the game, eventually focusing in on the prospects side, where his interest was pushed by the big league team being below .500 for so long. John has covered the minors in some form since the 2002 season, and leads the draft and international coverage on Pirates Prospects. He writes daily on Pittsburgh Baseball History, when he's not covering the entire system daily throughout the entire year on Pirates Prospects.
