Day Game Open Thread

It’s almost game time, and we’ve got several members of the JV squad in the game today, including Mat Gamel and Jody Gerut. I have yet to see Jody Gerut hit a ball out of the infield, but I’m sure it will happen for him soon.

Anyway, they will also have the bat of Yovani Gallardo in the lineup so that should compensate a bit. The Brewers stole one from Johan yesterday behind a solid outing from Mike Boo-urns. If Yo can just be Yo, the Brewers should pull off the sweep, all while the Cubs are floundering against the Pirates and the Cardinals are struggling mightily against the Giants.

The Crew visits my neighborhood for a 4-game set with the Cubbies this weekend, and the good news is that the Cubs will not have Aramis Ramirez back until Monday. Timing is everything.

Here’s what we’re looking at:

2B Craig Counsell
SS JJ Hardy
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Mat Gamel
C Jason Kendall
CF Jody Gerut
RHP Yovani Gallardo

Go Crew!

How many frickin DPs is that?

Frak.

If they're going to score, this is probably their best shot with the two lefties coming up.

If we can't get Yo a win today, it'll blow.
