Go go gadget Brewers win!

Were you to ask, some people would say that Kevin Correia (10-7, 4.63) is their hero. I have no idea who those people would be, but I'm sure they exist. He's been a fairly average pitcher over his career (4.45 FIP) and this season (4.64 FIP). He strikes out a pretty normal amount of batters (6.57 K/9 career, 6.87 season) and walks a good amount of hitters as well (3.54 BB/9 career, 3.72 season). Over his career, the only above-average pitch he throws is his slider.

If you're reading this site, you probably know plenty about the skills of Chris Narveson (9-7, 5.61), or the lack thereof. But did you know that Chris Narveson signed his first contract with the Brewers on December 3, 2007. Also occurring on that date were winter storms in Washington that caused the Chehalis River to flood, resulting in 8 deaths and billions of dollars worth of damage. Chris Narveson causes natural disasters.

Lineup:

Weeks 2B

Escobar SS

Braun LF

Fielder 1B

McGehee 3B

Cain CF

Dickerson RF

Lucroy C

Narveson P
