If this matchup sends shivers down your spine, it's probably because you still haven't recovered from the 1979 World Series, when the Orioles blew a 3-1 series lead. The Pirates haven't been back here since that darkest of nights. Or maybe you're old enough to remember the '71 Series, which also ended with the Pirates, again the visiting team, piling on each other after the seventh game. Otherwise, it could be the throwback uniforms, or your strange obsession with watching Phil Dumatrait pitch for the Pirates. Yes, that has to be it.
