Open Thread: Duke v. Wholestaff

Yo will start tonight, but I assure you he will not finish. It will be interesting to see what Dale cobbles together in the later part of this one. And since Zach Duke is a shitty lefty, we've got the righty lineup making its triumphant second appearance in a row:

CF Mike Cameron
3B Bill Hall
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
SS J.J. Hardy
RF Corey Hart
2B Rickie Weeks
C Jason Kendall
RHP Yovani Gallardo

And while I know we do our fair share of Bill Hall bashing around here, he has mashed him some lefties (although not lately) and he's really pounded Zach Duke. Going by the numbers, Billy definitely belongs out there tonight.

In other important news, the Cubs will send Rich Harden (probably on a strict, strict pitch count) to face the man once simply known as Pedro and now known as Pedro Martinez, while the Phillies have the day off.

It's Gallardo v. Duke in the series finale. Let's Rock.

Go Brewers!
