8/19 Brewers-Astros Open Thread

Okay, let's try this again. Tonight we have Big Ben Sheets (11-6, 3.00 ERA, 37 BB/133 SO) against Brian Moehler (8-4, 3.97 ERA, 26 BB/58 SO). This should be a good match-up.

We have a Braun-less lineup, which is a bit disconcerting, but let's hope it's just precautionary and that we'll see him back and clouting homers before we know it. Said Braun, "I can definitely play with it. It's not 100% but I can deal with it. I think it'll eventually get better. I hope it does." Ehhhh, I'm not sure I like the sound of that.

Gabe Kapler is in the three spot for Braun, and Durham is taking his regular spot at 2nd against the right-handed Moehler. Craig Counsel is in at third and, for some retarded reason, is batting before the 9-spot.

2B Ray Durham
SS J.J. Hardy
LF Gabe Kapler
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Craig Counsell
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
RHP Ben Sheets

Go Brewers!
