Finally, oh finally, can I phrase something like this in a way that reflects a GOOD surprise: Who would've thought that the Brewers would be 10 games better than the Rockies at this point in the season? Not a good start for the Coloradans.
The matchup is Ben Sheets and Ubaldo Jimenez, which is the sort of thing that turns 10 games into 11 games. In a special ceremony tonight, first round pick Brett Lawrie will be Jason Kendall's designated hitter. The future is now!
Game time is a Rocky Mountain-tastic 8:05 CT, and here's the BR Game Preview.
Go restocked Brewers!
