3/12 Game Thread: Brewers host Rangers

New, 8 comments

The "B" game is going on now (and Dave Bush started that one), but the "A" game is on at 3:05 CT.  Carlos Villanueva starts for the Crew, and Yovani Gallardo is scheduled to work as well.  

The game will be webcast, and you should be able to find it via the official site.  So far the big stories in camp seem to be Laynce Nix, who's hitting and fielding well, but doesn't have a clear route on to the team, and Gallardo, who's dominating the Cactus League.  I would love to see Yovani get a start in an "A" game and face a full MLB lineup; so long as he's coming in in the 4th or 5th inning, he isn't quite getting that.  Still, both performances are impressive.

What an odd problem to have--the Brewers have too many good players to fit on to a 25-man roster.  If Ryan Braun comes back from his time off and hits the way he started the spring, there'll be one more tough to decision to make.
