Will this be the game we get into the positive run differential?

That is one heck of a start from Woodruff. I'll take 6 innings and 1 run allowed with 9 Ks every day. Great stuff today. He's getting better with each start.

So who will the Nationals be willing to trade at the deadline?

Would they trade Sherzer with a 2years 2months left on his megadeal? I assume they would, but don't know if politics would override baseball sense.

I don't suppose they would trade Bearclaw unless they got multiple arms and legs back, with 3+ years of control.

Yes, no doubt.
Even if it’s against the worst line-up he’ll face this year.

Does Hader get an inning today with the off-day tomorrow? He hasn't pitched since his 13-pitch, 3 K save on Sunday.

While I don't think the Brewers have to call up Hiura for this weekend's series against the Cubs, Shaw is also providing zero justification for staying in the everyday lineup - even against RHP.

Albers appears to be working on making that a certainty so far in the 7th...

Albers not holding the lead very well. Woodruff with another quality start. Looks like Hader might be needed today.

Why is Robles bunting against a tomato can like Guerra?

Come on Junior. Let's make this easy on your arm and the rest of the pen. Go in to tomorrow and get another full day of rest!

That's an odd compliment for a pitcher.

Starter, long reliever, stopper, closer ... it hasn't mattered. A healthy Guerra has been a good pitcher in any role they've put him in.

How can anyone watch Guerra pitch, with the great stuff he has, and think anything other than, man, is he good!! Geez.

Junior Guerra has been one of the top 5 most valuable Brewers so far this season.

I guess I should've put that in blue. I usually don't when the sarcasm is obvious.

Anyone know when BA is back in the booth? Matt Lepay is about as good a standin as you can get, but I miss BA.


I missed him at first, but he is a distant memory now. Lepay has been great!

A shame that has to go down as a strike.

Guerra was going to be a key player this year after moving all the young guys to the rotation and Knebel going down. Glad he has been up to the task so far this year.

Tinfoil hat time --- Burch Smith is coming in to mop up the 9th, after pitching two innings last night. This is typically how this team uses a pitcher who is about to join the San Antonio shuttle. Unless they are going to activate Wilkerson from the 10-day injured list, there is no other obvious pitching candidate for a call up. Could they be looking at bringing up a bat for this weekend? Hmmm ...

Shaw says "hold my beer" when it comes to joining the San Antonia shuttle after that grounder...sheesh
