(Same as the old ace?)
Gallardo's now back in the rotation, starting this afternoon (1:05 CT) against Livan Hernandez. Since Hernandez is a righty, we shouldn't be subjected to back-to-back days of Tony Graffanino in left field. Creative? Yes. Acceptable? Ok. Really f'ing weird? Absolutely.
Once again, last night the Cubs narrowed the division lead, which stands at 3.5 games. In Chicago, they'll be finishing up the four-game set this afternoon with a matchup between Matt Morris and Ted Lilly, with Barry Bonds apparently in the lineup. You don't need me to tell you how nice it would be to pair a Milwaukee win with a San Fran win.
