Versus Cubs | Game Log
Narveson is a late bloomer who has established himself with 28 Brewers starts in each of the past two seasons. He drew a good matchup; Narveson is 6-1 with a 3.55 ERA in 13 career appearances against the Cubs, six starts.

Versus Brewers | Game Log
Maholm was slowed this spring by the flu, which is why he was dropped into the No. 5 spot. But his goal is to pitch 200 innings, which few fifth starters can do. He does like pitching at Wrigley Field, where he has a career 6-2 record.

  1. 2B Rickie Weeks
  2. CF Carlos Gomez
  3. LF Ryan Braun
  4. 3B Aramis Ramirez
  5. RF Corey Hart

You left out bunting, but that's maybe more of a prerequisite than a qualification.

True, but in RRR's mind being fast = good at bunting

Gamel hitting 7th behind Gonzalez irks me. Lefty vs Lefty or not. If Gamel is going to be in the lineup, he has no business batting behind Gonzalez.

I agree. Keep the lineup consistent. Mat has hung in there just fine in ST and now in the regular season. Let him prove he can keep doing it by providing him an opportunity. Besides, when the Brewers jump all over Maholm early, and he gets pulled, they probably bring in a right handed reliever anyway.

And to those ripping Gomez batting second, give the guy a chance. It is game 5. Nyjer got his first hit last night. No one was calling for him to be out of there after a sample size of 2 games. Gomez has a sample size of one.

Gomez has a sample size of 2,000 at bats of sub .300 OBP.

Career numbers:
Morgan vs LHP: .201 / .287 / .269 / .557
Gomez vs LHP: .242 / .288 / .395 / .683

Aoki is the other option, but all he would be is a hope at better numbers.

Hart is an option at #2. So is Lucroy. The CF doesn't have to bat #2.

Fan is short for fanatic.
I blame Wang.

I've no problem with Gomez playing vs LHP.

He has no business hitting anywhere but 8th.

I don't think people have a problem with Gomez playing against LHP. It's just that Roenicke (and a lot of managers for that matter) have a set position line-up and positions usually hit in a certain spot, regardless of who plays. For Roenicke, the CF will always hit 2nd and the catcher 8th.

Against righties, I'm fine with Roenicke's lineup except I would swap Lucroy and Gonzo (and probably Weeks/Morgan). For lefties though, I would put Lucroy 2, Gamel 6, Gomez 7, Gonzo 8.

This is Jack Burton in the Pork Chop Express, and I'm talkin' to whoever's listenin' out there.

If you can get Hart's numbers to play at the 5th spot, I really think you keep him there. The only reason (to me) you don't bat Hart 5th is if you want him to see more fastballs in front of Braun or something.

GOMEZ: run to first AFTER you bunt the ball. Why do we have a hitting coach?

Gomez earned that run three times. Double, moving up on thorw and with the slide.

Gomez might be one of the dumbest players in the MLB, but MAN can he slide.
