Follow the jump for conversation -- and more exclamation points!!! -- on tonight's game!
David Bush (5-9, 4.48) makes his sixth- or seventh-to-last start for the Brewers tonight. For the year, the numbers that you want to see low (WHIP, BB/9) are higher than Bush's career averages (1.55, 3.5, respectively, vs. 1.29, 2.3 in his career), and the numbers that you want to see high (K/9, for instance) are lower than Bush's career averages (5.6, vs. 6.1 in his career). On the plus side ... my mother taught me never to blow smoke up people's patoots when I had nothing good to say. Hence: that's all I've got on Dave Bush.
For the Snakes, former ChiSox prospect Daniel Hudson (3-1, 3.73 for CHW and ARI) is on the slab. Since being acquired as part of the deal that sent Edwin Jackson to Chicago, Hudson's made two starts for Arizona. He went eight strong innings in his D-backs' debut, allowing a single earned run to the Mets in a 14-1 Arizona romp. Hudson followed that performance with a seven-and-two-thirds, one-run, three-hit outing against the Padres in a 2-1 D-backs victory.
