Hey, the Brewers and Cubs are playing a big series this week. Big rivalries and big games occur outside of New York and Boston. Who would have known?
Well, the Crew needs to win one of the last two games of the series, and I feel better with Parra throwing than I do Bush. Not all is lost by only winning 1 of the 4. Not what you want, but you have to avoid the sweep.
Lets look at tonight's starting line up:
2B Ray Durham
SS J.J. Hardy
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Bill Hall
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
LHP Manny Parra
Looks like Weeks should get used to the pine. He always has the Time Warner ads to fall back on.
Honestly, I don't know what else can be said about tonight's game. The Brewers gave one away on Monday and were flat out beat down last night. They need to get those games out of their heads and prepare to kick some butt tonight. Lets get going in the first for a change. Put up a 3 spot and keep building as the game goes on.
No predictions for a final, but I see a high scoring affair tonight based on no facts or stats. Meanwhile, enjoy this photo of Kenny Rogers.
