I'm really surprised they didn't call someone up since they're going to need to fill Nelson's spot eventually.

Yeah, that's the part I'm curious about, it's just postponing it. And in doing so taking the chance on Anderson on short rest, albeit after a relatively low pitch count his last time out.

We are off after this series, so Anderson can make his next start on normal rest. But the next time the #5 spot comes up after that will be during the Cubs series. Is it going to be Davies/Anderson on short rest again? Seems like the worst time to insert a new starter otherwise.

Didn't Anderson just come off an injury lately? Starting on 3 days rest is asking for another injury.

I'm fine with it, the situation is forcing them to take some risks.

Low risk, high reward move. Anderson is the perfect guy for the job. He hasn't thrown 100 pitches since June and only had 67 last time out. He's thrown almost 900 pitches less than Jimmy Nelson this year (partially thanks to the injury).

We're starting to get close to must-win territory so worrying about the Cubs series can wait.

Starters going on 3 days rest typically works out really well.

Sarcasm yes, but there's some truth to that. It's just a matter of which less-than-desirable option you want to go with.

For what it's worth, had we called up a minor leaguer, that person would have faced the pirates back to back. That takes away the "hasn't seen him before" aspect of someone like Wilkerson the second time through. It appears we will need a 2nd starter on the 19th, 24th, and 30th of September. We could ask Davies to start on short rest on the 24th and with the off day, only need a 5th starter twice the rest of the way. I highly suspect we go that route, keep an eye on if Davies gets pulled on the 20th with a lower pitch count. It would also allow either Davies or Anderson to pitch a potential wildcard game on normal or extra rest. With 18 games left, our 2 best starters would pitch 8 times in this case. Here's hoping it works out.

Put me down as thinking this is not a smart move... Beginning to really question Counsell as a manager, which is weird because the Brewers have overachieved well beyond what most would have predicted and are in it this late in the season.

I don't get sitting Villar when he finally gets hot (hitting over .380 in the last 28 days) and don't get this move either.

Eric Thames is hitting .182 as a lead off hitter yet there he is night after night...

It really took Counsell a long time to realize that Barnes was a poor choice late in games

Etc etc....

Would any of you rather have Garza go instead?

No, but there are minor leaguers fully stretched out and ready to go. This might work though since Anderson pitched so littler against the Cubs.

I just think that being in a pennant race right now it's too risky to depend on a green minor leaguer to keep you in the thick of things, especially when we have an offense that has a harder time scoring than Beavis and Butthead.

I love it. Let go for it using our best. Put them all on four days rest.

He had like 2 months off this year already and threw basically a slightly longer side session in his last start. He'll be fine.

With the short start tonight and seven pitchers used I wouldn't be surprised to see Jungmann get called up tomorrow.

Today showed why you can't have a long enough bench. Suter doesn't have it, so pinch hit for him early instead of trying to force him to go five; Phillips singles and scores, then use your pen.

4 days rest from here on in. Plenty of time to sit on the couch in the offseason if they can't get it done.

This makes perfect sense. Last Saturday I assumed he was starting due to being removed after 67 pitches
