I'm realistically hoping that we win one game this series. However, if we sweep or win two out of three, it would be HUGE for us and will maybe the series we need to get really thinking about the playoffs.

I'd love to get this game tonight...with Cappy pitching tomorrow I think we could realistically (although maybe not probably) take 2 of 3 from the white hot twinkies. Sunday's game vs. Liriano doesn't look too good though, so tonight's game is huge IMO.


BTW, that picture of Villanueva is just plain awesome.

Cappy v. Silva tomorrow seems like a good matchup. The pen has been extra scary the last few games though. It seems like nobody out their but Turnbow could get anyone out. And that was the cub "offense" they were facing. Radke isn't anything special anymore and I expect us to score some runs off him. Keeping runs off the board will be the hard part. 1 out of 3 means a .500 road trip. I would have liked better but realistically that was a pretty likely outcome.

brewers19, I envy you.


I don't really like our chances in any of the games this series (except maybe Saturday).


We know Villaneuva, as good as may pitch, is probably going to be limited to no more than 6 or 7 innings, thereby turning the game over to the 'pen, which is when the wheels just might fall off, especially in the HomerDome.


Negativity aside, this should be a fun series with the ol' Border Battle in full swing.
