Lineup Card: Rockies @ Pirates 4-24-12


Colorado Rockies (8-7)
  1. Marco Scutaro (2B)
  2. Dexter Fowler (CF)
  3. Carlos Gonzalez (RF)
  4. Troy Tulowitzki (SS)
  5. Todd Helton (1B)
  6. Michael Cuddyer (RF)
  7. Ramon Hernandez (C)
  8. Chris Nelson (3B)
  9. Jamie Moyer (P)
The Opening Day lineup is back in play with everybody's bumps, bruises, sore throats, yips and damaged toenails — Warning: Nasty Photo Here — close to being 100%. 

Pittsburgh Pirates (6-9)
  1. Alex Pressley (LF)
  2. Jose Tabata (RF)
  3. Andrew McCuthen (CF)
  4. Casey McGehee (1B)
  5. Neil Walker (2B)
  6. Yamaico Navarro (3B)
  7. Rod Barajas (C)
  8. Clint Barmes (SS)
  9. Kevin Correia (P)
Meanwhile, this is Pittsburgh's lineup. And it's not good.

The Rockies need to jump on these guys with some early offense, get a solid outing from Moyer, and take this first game ahead of tomorrow's doubleheader. Because as we know, unless you're playing at Citi Field against the Mets, it's tough to sweep those things.

So yes, that makes this an oddly important April game in Pittsburgh.
