Please Tomko, don't stink tonight. If you do, at least be bad enough that Billingsley replaces you in the rotation.

Some pondering on the Brewers

Why is Tony Gwynn Jr. starting when the Brewers have about 12 outfielders who are better than him?

They have a useless platoon at third, Bill Hall in center, and 12 outfielders. Why doesn't Hall play third and, say, Corey Hart play center.

Answers later on tonight.

Answers, thanks to dixieflatline on Brew Crew Ball.

Gwynn is the hot bat so Ned is riding him. As for Hall they are just waiting for Braun to take over at 3rd. They don't want to move Hall twice. I am not saying they are good answers but there are the answers.
