56-62

69-51

Pitching Matchup

Charlie Morton

9-6, 3.56

Morton's scoreless-innings streak is at 17 after eight shutout frames Monday. He has put together terrific back-to-back starts, though to take a step forward, Morton is going to have to improve against left-handed hitters.

Shaun Marcum

10-3, 3.62

Marcum has gone at least six innings in six of his last seven starts and has won his last three decisions. The right-hander will make his second start against the Pirates this season. He threw seven shutout innings against them on April 13.

1-0 for Sunday, Brewers. Aaahh, I gotta go (to Milwaukee).

Remember: the Brewers never panic like you do.

Per @haudricourt

#Brewers lineup vs. Pirates: 3B Lopez, CF Morgan, LF Braun, 1B Fielder, RF Kotsay, SS Betancourt, 2B Counsell, C Lucroy, RHP Marcum.

Yay, Sunday lineup. Yikes.

Edit: This is as lefty-stacked a lineup as RR can put together (minus Kottaras). I'm going to guess that's what's going on here.

Classic Sunday lineup. Makes no sense at all. If these players are gonna play, I'd go Morgan, Lopez, Braun, Fielder, Betancourt, Kotsay, Lucory, Counsell, Marcum. I'd also have Counsell at 3B, and Lopez at 2B.

Hoping we don't have a Yostian Sunday lineup today! Put your foot on their throat, Ron!

I don't know about in the past, but this lineup makes me think Roenicke is thinking, "Hey, we're up 5 games. Might as well get these other guys in there and give some of the regulars a day off. What's the worst that'll happen? We'll lose and be up only 4 games. But if we win, they get some PT and we stay up 5 at least."

Oh, well. I've become accustomed to these lineups on Sundays and get-away-days over the years so it's no big deal. Heck, if you look around at lineups of other teams on Sundays and get-away-days I'd bet that there's more than a few teams that do this as well.

This lineup makes it feel almost like the Brewers are just openly taunting the Pirates now. "Here, we'll throw three terrible hitters in the lineup and you still won't beat us!" Hope they're right...

I mean.......come on.......this has to be a joke, right?

Lopez leading off........Lopez and Counsell in the same lineup........with Kotsay.

Nope, it's not. It's real.

Lopez leading off? I mean, seriously?

Yeah, yeah I know, "Well who ELSE would you put leadoff? Well, not Lopez!

I was late to the party. I was at work and opened up a reply thread, then got sidetracked and by the time I had written and submitted my comment, it had been about 30 mins later. Image

It's not even getaway day though, the Brewers are still at home after today. They've also had two off days in the last week and a half. I don't mind sitting McGehee, but Hart's been on a roll, so I hope there's something more beyond just giving him a day off for the sake of giving him a day off.

From Rotowire: Lefty hitters are batting .384 with a 34:27 BB:K ratio against Morton after Monday night, according to the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette.

There you go. RR is bringing the lefties.

I'd like to say "small sample size" but over his career, Morton has been consistently awful vs. lefties.

However, there's nothing about Craig Counsell or Felipe Lopez that makes me think it was 'necessary' to get them into the lineup today.

It's Counsell bobble head day today isn't it? I wouldn't be surprised if that factored into Counsell's start.

Morton's career splits. Can't fault RR to much for going the lefty route, though I'd still prefer the regular lineup:

Hart is the only big piece missing. Casey can sit and it's no big deal. Other than that it's the same guys. It's like people post the same thing everytime one starter is out. Bench guys are going to play. If you call this the AAA lineup, then you can say that everyday I guess. Missing Hart one day does not make the lineup completely awful.

If you spotted the Nashville Sounds a good MLB pitcher, they'd have a fairly good chance to beat this lineup. Wow

Felipe Lopez as the lead-off hitter? Mark Kotsay (of all people) "protecting" Prince?. Counsell at 2B & Lopez at 3rd?

this is hilarious people are upset about the "contents" of the lineup, to set aside comments about the order for now.

Kotsay for Hart... and?


People already miss McGehee that much? Extra strong fix for a Wilson this morning? This place is funny.
