Win tonight, sweep the Cubs over the weekend. I would rate April a success then! Am I getting ahead of myself a bit?

Ladies and gentlemen - your new Milwaukee Brewers regular first baseman!

Jhoulys Chacin (1-1, 4.18) gets the nod tonight for the Milwaukee Brewers (15-9) as they finish their quick two-game venture into the American League against the Kansas City Royals (5-16). Jason Hammel (0-1, 3.20) gets the ball for Ned Yost's group.

Orlando Arcia is back in the Milwaukee line-up, and Jesus Aguilar begins his long stint (perhaps two months) auditioning for the Brewers and the rest of baseball as a viable starting first baseman. Maybe he's the next Big Papi?
