We've got Ryan Dempster facing off against Dave Bush again. I don't know if there's too much to say about either of these two, other than Dempster's glove flip drives me up the wall and that (more importantly) Bush is probably pitching for his job here today. Even without he who must not be named but was released, the Brewers have so many potential rotation candidates lurking in the bullpen that the composition of said rotation is essentially anybody's guess. The next four probables for this week are listed as Narveson, Parra, Gallardo, and Wolf.
|Chicago Cubs||Milwaukee Brewers|
|Kosuke Fukudome RF||Jim Edmonds CF|
|Ryan Theriot 2B||Rickie Weeks 2B|
|Marlon Byrd CF||Prince Fielder 1B|
|Chad Tracy 3B||Ryan Braun LF|
|Xavier Nady 1B||Casey McGehee 3B|
|Tyler Colvin LF||Corey Hart RF|
|Geovany Soto C||Jonathan Lucroy C|
|Starlin Castro SS||Alcides Escobar SS|
|Ryan Dempster P||Dave Bush P|
The usage of the bullpen:
Zach Braddock pitched 1 inning (15 pitches) yesterday.
Trevor Hoffman pitched 1 inning (10 pitches) yesterday.
David Riske (!) pitched 1 inning (11 pitches) yesterday.
Chris Smith pitched 1.1 inning (22 pitches) yesterday.
John Axford pitched 1 inning (23 pitches) Tuesday.
Carlos Villanueva pitched 1 inning (18 pitches) Tuesday.
Kameron Loe pitched 1.2 inning (25 pitches) on Sunday.
Chris Capuano last pitched and started on June 3, is not listed as a probable starter this week, and thus would be theoretically available.
