Game Thread #134: Brewers (77-56) at Pirates (57-76)

Dave Bush vs. Tom Gorzelanny tonight.
The biggest baseball news in Pittsburgh these days is surely the Pedro Alvarez saga, while for the Brewers, it's probably that the Cubs beat the Phillies 3-2 earlier today, featuring yet another late-inning comeback for Chicago (including another bases-loaded walk). So much for that vaunted Phillies bullpen. Rich Harden was mortal this time out at least. Then again, considering where we are relative to both teams at this point, maybe we should have been cheering for the Cubs anyway.

In other Brewers news, the Tigers blogger I mentioned before who simulates Elias' free agent rankings put up the ones for NL infielders. Neither Ray Durham nor Craig Counsell are projected to qualify even as Type B free agents, though Durham is pretty close.

Anyway, as usual, don't forget to check out the BR Game Preview.

Go Brewers!
