4-17 Game Thread: Brewers (7-5) at Astros (8-4)

It suddenly seems like the Brewers 5-0 start was a long time ago. Just about everybody, including Ben Sheets, has proven to be beatable, and while the bats came alive on Saturday, they promptly died again whenver the bases were loaded yesterday.

Today, Dave Bush and the Crew takes on Taylor Buchholz and the Astros. Bush gave us one great start against the Diamondbacks, but was roughed up in St. Louis. I like his chances tonight: Houston's offense is hardly one of the NL's best, and I'm convinced he pitched better than his stat line reflected last week.

It's been a hectic few days for me--I'm moving next week--so I apologize for the relative lack of posting. I'll bombard y'all with Brewers content again shortly. I'll post the lineups for tonight as soon as I see them.

Update [2006-4-17 19:29:15 by Jeff]: Here you go, as expected, though I wonder just how long Prince will stay in the 7 spot, especially with Chad Moeller hitting behind him.
