4/28/06 1:20 pm Brewers (Bush) @ Cubs (Maddux)


I hope nobody objects to starting tomorrow's IGT now. With it being a day game, and the day off today, it just seems appropriate. I really hope the Crew can continue playing well at Wrigley and gain some ground in the standings.


Interesting tidbit......


Of the Brewers losses......3 have come to the Reds, 2 to the Astros, and 2 to the Cardinals.


That is 7 losses against the NL Central.


The Brewers are 4-2 against the NL East and 2-1 against the NL West.

Dave Bush - (2-1, 3.54)



Bush's Splits vs. Chicago


Bush is coming off his second career shutout after beating Cincinnati, 11-0, on Sunday. He struck out nine and walked only two in pitching the four-hit shutout. It will be his fifth start since joining the Brewers in the offseason trade that sent Lyle Overbay to the Blue Jays




Greg Maddux - (4-0, 0.99)



Maddux's Splits vs. Milwaukee


Maddux is getting better with age. In his last start, the right-hander won his fourth straight game -- the first time he's won his first four starts in his career -- and did so in splendid fashion. Maddux threw seven scoreless innings against the Cardinals, striking out four. He is 12-3 with a 2.16 ERA lifetime against the Brewers.

I will be attending this game at Wrigley Field thanks to a radio contest during the Peter Brown show on AM 1250 WSSP. I was the lucky caller who correctly answered the question "When was the last time the Brewers swept the Cubs?". I ended up winning two tickets.


I really hope we win.

The Brewers were 1 of only 4 teams that bothered to put out a press pass today.








Fun fact from the Cubs Press Pass:


MADDUX VS. MILWAUKEE: Today?s starter Greg Maddux owns a 12-3 career mark

against the Milwaukee Brewers, good for an .800 winning percentage ? that?s Maddux?s

best winning percentage against any National League team.

Ironically, Maddux?s second-best winning percentage among National League clubs is

against the Cubs (11-3, .786).

I don't know why (I assume because his one really bad outing was reeeeaallly bad), but I was kind of surprised to see that we're 7-1 in games Matt Wise pitches in. Yeah, I know he's our set-up man but I don't recall seeing him even that much.

pretty obvious the formula for success so far, eh?


As for my surprise...Cappy w/5 QS. I was shocked on Wed to go to mlb.com and see he was leading the league in K's. And how 'bout that Sheets K:BB.

I just bought MVP Baseball 2005 on Ebay because i lost my old copy.


Updating the rosters MANUALLY spanned this entire week. A little bit each night. Thanks Xbox live for shutting down MVP's auto updates.. i guess they had to..


ANYWAY, i set up my rotation: Sheets, Davis, Bush, Cappy, Ohka... Just got done playing my third game of the season which was last years schedule.


Bush vs. Maddux...... I got no-hit by Maddux. Actually, Carlos hit a double and reached third on an error by the centerfielder but they didn't count it as a hit for some reason.. lost 1 to 0. Bush was strong... 12 K's.


And that, is your MVP preview.

Nothing like a cubs/crew game to start up the weekend. Dont know about anyone else but these games get me fired up. I really hate not only the cubs but the people that go with them. Just a few hours away and work gets a whole lot better.


Keep the lineup the same with weeks at the top with gorss in the 2. Its been winning and you keep a good thing going until it fails. Brady can wait.

Good success in the past vs Maddux. Excluding the pitchers, the Brewers hitters hit at a team clip of .307 (59 for 192) vs Maddux, if my numbers are correct. Of course, Maddux has not been this "on fire" in a while, either.


Jenkins... .395 in 38 AB with 1 HR

Miller.... .385 in 26 AB

Clark... .346 in 26 AB

Lee (not so good)... .158 in only 19 AB with 1 HR


Jacque Jones is the only Cubs player that has faced David Bush (1 for 5) from his days with the Twins.


Advantage Crew?
