Manager Ron Roenicke took the first steps to try to get the team going on the road by shaking up the lineup for tonight's game against the Rockies. It's a bold move, moving Rickie Weeks from leadoff to fifth and Corey Hart to first.
As I wrote yesterday, the Brewers needed to do something to end their horrid road play. I think this is a good step. Moving Weeks into a spot where there's more chance drive in runs and Hart is speedy enough to be effective at the top of the order.
Roenicke also made a change at shortstop, moving Josh Wilson into that spot for Yuniesky Betancourt. It'll be interesting to see if the change stabilizes the defense on the left side. I wonder if Wilson will be able to get to more balls thereby taking some pressure off Casey McGehee at third.
