Duke curses the fates

Zach Duke got dinked in the fourth yesterday. "When that happens, you can't get frustrated," Duke said.

This is going to happen to pitchers who rely on finesse and who don't throw hard enough to miss opponents' bats. There's a big difference between Duke and Maholm and the 2004 version of Ollie Perez.

The Pirates talk a lot about their great young pitching, but they don't have young pitchers like Liriano or Verlander who can just blow opposing hitters away. That's why Gorzelanny may be the most promising of the guys currently on the staff.
