After another high-scoring loss, we can only hope the combination of Ben Sheets and a less-than-impressive Reds lineup result in a nice 6-1 game. You can never discount a team with Adam Dunn in the three-spot, but Rich Aurilia batting cleanup? Quinton McCracken starting in a corner? I'll stop criticizing and just wait for Sheeter to rack up the ten K's I expect from him. We just need to keep Bronson Arroyo off the board!
I really like the Brewers lineup today. Gabe Gross gets another start in center, which means the entire order alternates L/R from 1 to 8. Prince Fielder moves back up into the 5-spot on the heels of his recent hot stretch--maybe he'll give Carlos Lee enough protection so that Caballo will see a few more pitches.
