It's the Brewers, not a horse, that Bartolo Colon is facing off with tonight.

It's delayed rebuild vs total rebuild tonight at Miller Park! The Braves (as pointed out by Jaymes here) have added some very old players to give Atlanta fans someone they might recognize at Sun Trust Park while they develop their most excellent farm system, while the Brewers have added Eric Thames. You be the judge.

Anyways, Bartolo Colon (1-2, 4.50 ERA) will start for the ex-Milwaukeans against Chase Anderson (2-0, 1.13) for the current version. The Brewers petitioned the NL to have the Braves wear Cincinnati Reds' uniforms to no avail, so we can only hope that the Crew can do well at visualizing.

1. Ender Inciarte (L) CF
2. Adonis Garcia (R) 3B
