Presley up to the task vs. Moyer
PITTSBURGH -- Alex Presley, the Pirates' 26-year-old leadoff batter, was asked prior to Tuesday night's game whether he'd ever had an official at-bat against a "father figure."

The reference was to Presley leading off against Jamie Moyer, the 49-year-old Colorado left-hander.

"No. Never have. Will let you know what it's like," said Presley, who is wont to bunt and sounded like he might put Moyer's reputation for athleticism to an early test.

"I hear he moves around pretty well. We'll see," said Presley, smiling and obviously looking forward to the May-December confrontation.
