Ted Lilly is coming off of a shoulder injury and is making his first appearance of the season. He has been pitching well for the Cubs since signing prior to the 2007 season, posting FIPs of 4.16, 4.41, and 3.65 in the past three seasons. He's a two time all-star, including last year when he posted a 1.06 WHIP. Five current Brewers have ten or more plate appearances. I bolded Ryan Brauns slugging vs. Lilly because that is insane.

Player PA Slash Line
Prince Fielder 21 .444/.476/.667
Corey Hart 19 .278/.361/.611
Ryan Braun 17 .438/.471/.938
Rickie Weeks 14 .154/.214/.615
Jim Edmonds 12 .182/.250/.545

The Brewers are putting out the kind of lineup I like to see today:
2B Rickie Weeks
CF Carlos Gomez
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
3B Casey McGehee
RF Corey Hart
SS Alcides Escobar
C George Kottaras
LHP Doug Davis
