- Manny Parra is being pulled from the rotation on account of his general suckiness, replaced by Seth McClung.
- Gallardo might be ready to contribute out of the bullpen starting in the Reds series. If the Brewers don't win a game between now and then, I say shut him down. Why risk it? Although he can reminisce with Parra and Villanueva about how cool it was when they were all starting pitchers when the season started.
- David Riske's wasted 2008 season is now permanently wasted, as he's not going to pitch again this year.
And......the Brewers still lost last night, despite the absence of Nervous Ned.
Ryan Dempster's hit off of CC in the early going (2nd inning, maybe?) was the most ridiculous base hit I've ever seen. The Brewers announcers rightly said that it looked like he was playing Cricket with the bat. But that just goes to show you that good things can happen when you put bat on ball. Not enough bat on ball by the Brewers vs. Dempster. Ugh.
