Perrotto: Is There Link Between Doug Drabek and Johan Oviedo? (+)



Pittsburgh Pirates-Johan Oviedo

PITTSBURGH – It was a rare good night at the ballpark for the fans.

Prior to the Pittsburgh Pirates’ 6-0 blanking of the Chicago Cubs on Saturday evening, Doug Drabek threw out a ceremonial first pitch. As bad as the Pirates’ staff can be, it might have behooved the Buccos to have the 60-year-old throw out the real first pitch.

Fans received a Drabek bobblehead commemorating him winning the National League Cy Young Award in 1990. He remains the last Pirates pitcher to capture the honor.

It is far too early to think about Johan Oviedo becoming a Cy Young contender. However, he pitched like one – at least for a night – on Saturday in helping the Pirates end their eight-game losing streak.
