Pittsburgh Pirates vs Colorado Rockies Prediction

It would've been nice to know who was on the mound for the Pittsburgh Pirates, but I'm still rolling with them anyway. The Pirates are the better team no matter how you slice it, and its not like Ryan Feltner has been good. Feltner has an ERA of nearly 6 on the season, and he hasn't been any better pitching in Coors this season. Give me the Pirates regardless of who takes the mound, as the Rockies aren't appealing, especially with Feltner on the bump.
