Shakeup in the Batting Order


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.
