The Brewers have not been below .500 since May 11. Hopefully that streak continues against the Angels in what is probably the biggest series of the season to date for Milwaukee.

Ben Sheets gets back on the hill for the Brewers. He was originally scheduled to face Jarrod Washburn, but Washburn had his start pushed back a day to tomorrow due to troubles with leg cramps, so Kelvim Escobar pitches for Anaheim.

Having Washburn moved back helps. Hopefully the offense will finally break out of there prolonged slump.

Not too look too far ahead, but I've cleared the schedule and plan to be in front of the TV for Ben's next start on Sunday against Clemens. Man I wish I lived a bit closer to Milwaukee so I could witness that battle in person. I hope Clemens is 9-0 coming in and Sheets outduels him 1-0 or 2-1.

Should be a fun one to watch.

Thanks for your opinion backed by no facts and not even any argument. This is a really helpful prediction...very insightful. It's too bad everyone on this message board doesn't have the amazing power of logic that this prediction expresses.

*Is this enough sarcasm?*

It was the guys predicition - how he feels, he doesn't need to have stats to back his prediction up. Go back and under your statistical rock and leave the guy alone.

Nothing wrong with making a prediction. I think Hater's sense of impending doom is certainly understandable watching this team try to stay afloat with no offense for a month.

Sooner or later, the offense has to break through or this season will begin looking a lot like many recent seasons.

the Angels are argueable the best team in baseball...how about the Brewers sweet them this week and pound the Astros vaulting them up near the Reds/Redbirds for first place in the division and keeping Houston/Chicago back a few games.

This could definatly be a launching pad for a terrific summer if they capitalize at the right time.

The Angels have a lot better players than Milwaukee...but the Brewers have a better team.

Sweep these AL boys and keep on marching through June

if I had the option I would edit that post...I appologize for my irrationally and I definatly got dupped by the last two posts...all I was trying to say is that on any given day Milwaukee can beat the best.

I guess baseball isn't like basketball when a team without one HoFer (Pistons) can beat a team with 4 (Lakers). Im too excited about game 2 tonight and somehow translated that to baseball

anyways....I hope Milwaukee wins and Ill try and think before I post in the future...may I have a mulligan?

Of course... and I agree, certainly, that even the worst team in baseball can beat the best team. The fact that Sheets is going tonight is good, 'cause hopefully it will mean we win at least one of the three games, but you never know.

Coming from a longtime golfer, I'll give a mulligan on that shot! I take 'em all the time myself. :lol

I do agree that in baseball moreso than other sports, bad teams can beat the good ones on a given day.

GO SHEETS!

GO OFFENSE!

FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! GO OFFENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

who is the one hall of famer on the pistons? Hamilton, Billups, Wallace, B. Wallace, Prince.????Milicic? None of those guys are sure fire hall of famers at all.The reason the Pistons won and will win the series is becuase they are a better defensive team than the lakers are an offensive team.

....Damn I forgot about Big Nasty and Ham Jam..theirs your 2 hall of famers...:lol

"FOR CRYING OUT LOUD! GO OFFENSE!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!" Well said RoCo

From a motion picture you all know....names have been changed to protect the innocent....

A loud boom is heard in the Brewers locker room.

Burba: Jesus Christ, Ginter!
Ginter: Have to wake up Bats!

Smoke rises from Ginter's locker, thus setting off the Edison Field Visting Clubhouse indoor sprinkler system.

I wasn't sure who to cast in the roles of Cerrano and Harris? So since Ginter is leading the team in HRs, I made him Pedro and since Dave Burba is crafty and a veteran of this staff, he got to be Eddie Harris.

Any guesses as to who Neddy will put in the DH spot tonight against Ecobar. I'm guessing lefty, so I'll go with Liefer. Heck while I'm at it I'll try and guess the entire line-up. And this is only a guess.

Pods-Counsell-Jenks
Overbay-Grieve-Ginter
Spivey-Liefer-Moeller


SBS.

I'd prefer to see Kiesch in the DH spot, but I assume they brought Liefer up to be the DH in these series'. Winable series if they win tonight, as Washburn is very beatable.

If there's one series where I think the Brewers have a reason to put Bill Hall into the lineup....it's the one when they have a DH. ;)

I wouldn't mind seeing Grieve DH, and then let anyone who isn't Brady Clark pretend to play in right. Surely they would be better than Grieve defensively...right?

Kieschnick won't be available for this series, AFAIK, because he went home to be with his wife for the birth of their first child.

I think Brady Clark will play.... I'm just getting that whole "I haven't seen Brady play enough lately, so he needs to start" vibe.
