The Arizona Diamondbacks are in town to take on the surging Milwaukee Brewers. The DBacks have a losing record of 9-12 and are in 4th place in the NL West. While Milwaukee has won 7 of their last 8 games, sitting at 11-10. Tonights game will pit veteran right hander Jeff Suppan (0-2, 7.32) against Max Sherzer (0-2, 4.91). HERE is the list of probable match-ups for the 4-game series. The big one is Braden Looper vs Dan Haren on Saturday. HERE is another snapshot of the match up. This will be a great series, but a tough one.
With Mike Rivera on the DL, the Brewers decided to call-up Carlos Corporan from AAA Nashville, instead of the top prospect Angel Salome. I think we all knew that the kid isn't even close to being ready....yet.
Apparently Corey Hart reads this blog (yea right) and listened to the gripes from last season. His patience at the plate is starting to pay off. I was about to rip my hair out while watching the NLDS. The damn guy would swing at every first pitch...no matter where it was.
Ken Macha is enjoying his rebirth in Milwaukee. Overall, I like his style and how he leads. One thing I do laugh about it is his post-game Q & A's. He sounds like a damn redneck from Upper Michigan.
