Jaime Garcia

Garcia earned the Game 1 start with a quality effort -- seven innings, three runs -- despite a loss in Game 3 of the NL Division Series. He was 1-0 with a 1.93 ERA in two starts vs. the Brewers this year.

Zack Greinke

Greinke was poised to enter Game 5 of the NLDS in the 11th inning, but the game never got that far. That's a big bonus for the Brewers, who won all 16 of his Miller Park starts, including NLDS Game 2.

Things that are not classy:

 

Driving under the influence

Spitting in an umpire's face

Hurling an obscenity at an opposing player - then denying it and letting the opposing player take the heat in the media for 3 days

Complaining about a stadium's lighting effects

You fogot going to give an opposing fan a game ball and then pulling it back last second.

Well, I got tix to the game, and am about to leave for milwaukee....hate the 3.5hr drive from EC, but so worth it. Also tickets were only 50 bucks....gogo stubhub! lol. This will be the first time in as long as i remember that i'll be missing the packers game on TV, and be forced to listen to the radio. At least i'll have wayne larivee and larry mcarren to soothe me!

Dear Zack,

 

This is why you're in Milwaukee. This is why we traded three good young players to

get you. You're the guy we want on the mound today.

 

Go get em,

Brewers fans

 

P.s. Please don't suck. Otherwise we'll have to hear that you cracked under pressure and that you're

The actual phony. We know that's not true.

Here we go again. One day was definitely not enough of an emotional break from the NLDS. The Brewers are 4 wins away from World Series glory, or 4 losses away from watching the Classies get the last laugh.

 

If the Brewers win this series, it isn't going to be easy. Home field doesn't help much in the 2-3-2 format, the three game set in St. Louis is going to be extremely difficult.

 

And we can't let Alberta beat us.

Crap, Fielder is already playing for the Cards. I guess he is all time DH for the game.

Fan is short for fanatic.

I blame Wang.

The Brewers have the pitching edge in this series. The Cards only have one really good pitcher, and he'll only throw twice--and not until Game 3. That plus homefield should give them the edge, but for some reason the fact that it's the Cardinals gives me a horrible feeling. I did not want this series at all. Oh well.

I don't want to sound over dramatic, but today's game is really big for us. If we can't win with Ace #2 on the mound vs a very hittable Jaime, we'll be in trouble. We're sending out our struggling starter in game 2 and then face their ace in game 3.

 

Let's pound them.

I think you are really underestimating Garcia. He is pretty good.

jj, you could buy the $2.99 mlb.TV companion package. It doesn't come with any blackout restrictions. Otherwise, I'm sure you could convince the local sports bar to switch at least one of the TVs off of football this afternoon.

 

I'm pumped for this game. It weirds me out a little bit though to hear BA call these games.
