Stephen Strasburg's adversary in his Major League debut has a name. That name?
From clubhouse: Pirates planning to start LHP Zach Duke vs. Stephen Strasburg on Tuesday.
The whole thing kind of loses its drama when you realize the Pirates don't have anyone particularly interesting currently manning their rotation, but Duke's just about as good as it gets. Strasburg's debut will be a nice soft landing as he prepares to face real Major League competition later on.
