PITTSBURGH (93-7 The Fan) – Last year the Reds closer Aroldis Chapman beamed Pirates star Andrew McCutchen with a 100-mile per hour fastball to the back.

The Pirates didn’t respond and some believe at that point, the season started to take a nose dive — from first to worst, and some blame the Reds.

Is it time for the Bucs to get payback?

The Fan’s Colin Dunlap says yes, and with the Pirates ace A.J. Burnett taking the mound Friday evening, Colin believes this is the Pirate needed to get that payback.

Colin says he thinks the Reds hit the Pirates’ best hitter, so it is only fair for the Pirates to return the favor.

Friday night, under the lights, will the Pirates get their payback?

There’s also a chance that Bryan Morris my start for Wandy Rodriguez in Saturday night’s game.
