5/7 Game Thread: Brewers (16-15) at Dodgers (14-17)

Today, if Nomar Garciaparra comes up with one out and a runner on second in a tie game in the 9th inning, I'll ...I'll ...well, I don't know what I'd do. Let's hope it doesn't come to that.

Further, let's hope it doesn't come to that with Chris Demaria on the mound. Ned: you have an awesome relief pitcher. His name is Derrick Turnbow. Situations don't get any more important than the bottom of the 9th inning in a tie game on the road. Derrick can pitch! Let him! Enough about that.

This afternoon at 3:10 CT, Ben Sheets tries to bounce back after last week's disaster. Aaron Sele will make his first start for the Dodgers. I'm tempted to joke about this, but in the triple-A hitters heaven that is Las Vegas, Sele has pitched very well. However, the Crew did a great job of salvaging road series last month; let's do it one more time.

Update [2006-5-7 15:20:41 by Jeff]: Noooooooooo! Sheets is not starting today. Dave Bush will start instead. Not only does this imply a nasty, horrible fate for the Brewers, without 40% of their starting five, but it screws up starting plans for the rest of the month, which would've lessened the pain of relying on Hendrickson and others. No longer.

Well, go get 'em, Dave.
