Since 2007, the Brewers are 45-7 against the Pirates at Miller Park




I like those odds for Estrada!

Hitting the injury bug hard as well. 3 DL spots for Stanton, Zimmerman, A-Ram and Aaron Hill.

Aramis should be back in 2 or 3 days. Local broadcast says maybe last game of Pirate series.

Well, it could've certainly gone worse last night, but it also could've gone a hell of a lot better for Harvey and Fernandez. I blew 20% of my starts for the week and got almost nothing to show for it. Only silver lining is that my opponent blew 20% of his starts on Wandy and Lilly. Yet, his 6 HR, 10 RBI, and 13 R have him still up on me in the early going...

Nobody pitching today for me, but with Min and Det squaring off, I'm hoping that either Papa Grande or Perkins can get some Save Ops for me.

In other My Team news, Hanley's back, presumably making his first start today after his 0-for-1 with a K start last night in pinch hit duty. I'm currently trying to unload him for Pablo Sandoval, but need to see what the deal is with his (Panda's) elbow first.

And finally, Julio Teheran and I have formally ended our professional relationship. All in all he made it into my starting lineup once, and thankfully never after that. He hasn't been dropped quite yet, but the second there's a spot start I really like, adios Julio. It feels good, it really feels good.

Benching Morrow tonight. I feel a 1.2 IP, 7 ER game in the works.

Estrada, Shields, Verlander will carry my teams tonight.

My DL has been shrinking recently with Ortiz back and now Ramirez #1 with Ramirez #2 soon to follow. When Eaton comes back in a week or two I'll have some tough decisions to make.

Benching as well. He's gotta show me something in his next couple starts or else he will be going back to WW

I traded Morrow for Lincecum because I thought I could trust Lincecum more often... that says a lot! I was looking at Morrow's matchups and it was just so hard to find a time I would be comfortable using him.

Is it crazy to start Parker tonight against LA? After that marathon game I'm thinking they might be a little fatigued and might have some backups in.

Were you able to get him from the WW?

He's so frustrating and I have own him almost every year since the moved to Toronto. I should know better. Totally overvalued him this season. I have only started him twice this season and he will be on my bench tonight as well.
