I think this lineup speaks for itself:

  1. Corey Hart, RF
  2. Tony Graffanino, 2B
  3. Prince Fielder, 1B
  4. Bill Hall, SS
  5. Laynce Nix, CF
  6. Gabe Gross, LF
  7. David Bell, 3B
  8. Mike Rivera, C
  9. Doug Davis, P
Uh, yeah. It's quite something that we can be sending a lineup out there that includes only one starter (plus Davis) from the beginning of the season. I don't know what bad, bad weed Ned is smoking, but to put Nix in the 5-hole and Hart leading off...it's almost as bizarre as the thought that someone would buy this thing. Almost.

Unfortunately, Roger Clemens is pitching for the Astros. All we can hope for is to get his pitch count up early; we've worked the Houston bullpen to death, and they haven't performed well even when they were well-rested. Makes you wish Brady Clark were in the lineup to foul off about 17 pitches. Then again, his nickname in the press is "slumping," so he must not be any good.

Go Brewers!
