Brewers-Mets Open Thread-9/1/08

The Brewers start off a three-game series against the Mets today at Miller Park. The Mets send ace Johan Santana (12-7, 2.70 ERA, 50 BB/159 SO) against Ben Sheets (12-7, 3.05 ERA, 40 BB/144 SO). These two met back in April, and Sheets came out on top. Let's hope he can do it again. The lineups is the usual:

2B Rickie Weeks
SS JJ Hardy
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
CF Mike Cameron
3B Bill Hall
C Jason Kendall
P Ben Sheets

We'll have some new faces on the bench today with the September call-ups, including top prospects Mat Gamel, Alcides Escobar and Angel Salome. Other call-ups include Brad Nelson, Mitch Stetter, Tim Dillard, Mark DiFelice, Joe Dillon, Tony Gwynn Jr. and Vinny Rottino.

Oh crap. Sheets pulled from the game after 54 pitches of shut-out baseball. That can't be good.

At least he's still in the dugout and not surrounded by doctors.

fuck

DannyNoonan said...

The JSOnline blog says he left with "tightness in his left groin," whatever the hell that means.

DannyNoonan said...

Philly is down 2-0 to the Nationals in the 2nd.

E.S.K. said...

bunting for Hall and Kendall.

dumb

DannyNoonan said...

Balk! Fielder scores. Ha ha.

DannyNoonan said...

Bill Hall is not good at hitting.

E.S.K. said...

thank you Johan...Bill Hall, you are fucking dumb

Anonymous said...

Bill Hall has the worst stance in baseball.

DannyNoonan said...

No, Craig Counsell does.

E.S.K. said...

it's hilarious how hard the TV guys blow Hall when he makes a play at third. Like it somehow makes up for the damage his bat does to the Brewers.

E.S.K. said...

so....Riske is done

DannyNoonan said...

The only question is whether he's done for the game or for the season.

DannyNoonan said...

Talk about throwing Stetter out in a high pressure situation. Let's go Mitch!

DannyNoonan said...

Aww shit.

DannyNoonan said...

Whew. That coulda been a lot worse.

DannyNoonan said...

Gwynn? WTF?

DannyNoonan said...

F-ing Gagne.

E.S.K. said...

thank God, Dr. Davey Nelson doesn't think Sheets injury is serious

DannyNoonan said...

In the pregame show Dr. Davey described Corey Hart as "just there."

DannyNoonan said...

Houston up two runs on the Cubs.

It would be HUGE if we could pull this mess of a game out.
