Hair of the Dog, 2/18/09

I've sort of been off the radar for a while, first on a brief vacation and now on a business trip. I was in four different time zones yesterday! With the Bucks continuing to impress and the Brewers reporting to camp, I've been missing some exciting times in Wisconsin sports.

The Bucks took on the Pistons in Detroit last night, just 3 games after their overtime loss at the Bradley Center. They won 92 to 86. This time, Ramon Sessions upped his assists and let his team mates do most of the scoring. Richard Jefferson lead the way with 29 points on just 13 shots. Since Redd and Bogut went down, the Bucks have needed role players to really step up and support RJ, Charlie V and Sessions. Last night Malik Allen, who added 14 points and 8 rebounds. The Bucks are now 27 and 29 and holding on to the 8th playoff spot in the Eastern. They're two games ahead of New Jersey. The Bucks have 26 games remaining, 16 of which are home games. The Nets have 14 home games and 14 road games remaining. The Bucks are also just two games behind Detroit and Philly for the 5 and 7 spots. Both the Pistons and the 76ers have 13 home games and 17 road games to go.

Besides the team reporting to camp, the big Brewers news items include Cory Hart avoiding arbitration and signing a deal worth $3.25 Million plus incentives, and Erig Gagne signing a minor league contract, and Fielder is apparently less fat this year. I agree with what ESK said about Gagne below. It's a deal with a big up side and not much of a down side. The Hart deal seems reasonable enough. Let's just hope that now that he's making money, he doesn't start to look down on the fans.

We've also got some news about how Macha plans to use the players he has. He doesn't plan on having Gallardo as his #1 starter on opening day. That's cool with me. It may be tough to stomach the fact that Braden Looper is our #1, it would bump everyone down a peg and create more favorable match ups for the rest of the guys. At least in the early part of the season. He also plans to bat Weeks first and Hardy second. I think it's safe to assume that Braun and Fielder will be 3rd and 4th and the Kendal and Pitcher will be 8th and 9th.

I'm still looking for pictures of Fielder at camp. I want to see how much less fat he is.

At what point can we say the Bucks are better when Michael Redd doesn't play?
