In the News (4/9)

Today's Game: Reds 12, Brewers 4
Record: 6-2, First Place
Games Ahead of the Cubs: 1

- That game got ugly...

- Dave Bush did not pitch especially bad, but may have pitched his way into the bullpen when Gallardo returns. He might have been on his way out even before that though. Yost said yesterday on the Jim Rome show that the Brewers would have three inexperienced starters behind Sheets and Suppan. Since Bush is an experienced vet compared to Parra, Villanueva, and Gallardo, the writing appears to be on the wall.

- Seth McClung may have pitched himself off the team, making room for Bush in the pen. Just my guess...

- Bill Hall hit another home run and leads the team with four. Braun hit his third.

- The Brewers have now lost to Josh Fogg and Ryan Dempster. Why can't the Brewers beat crappy pitchers?

- I'm glad a bounce like the one off of Gross' glove to give Adam Dunn a home run happened in a game like today's instead of a close game because I would have been a lot more bummed about it...

- Fielder will wear #42 to honor Jackie Robinson on Tuesday. This quote is somewhat amusing: "What [Robinson] did, what he had to go through, I couldn't have done it. You guys know my temper. I'm glad he was able to do it for me so I didn't have to deal with that."

- Gallardo made his second rehab start. He pitched 5 1/3 giving up two runs and threw 90 pitches before rain cancelled the game. The Brewers recalled him for insurance this weekend as they head to New York with bad weather in the forecast. He could fill in if starters get rained out. Gallardo may be sent back to Nashville for another rehab start after the weekend.

- Prince did not get on base last night, ending his on-base streak at 39 games, good for third all-time in Brewers' history.

- More on the Cordero offseason situation... Not much new, just a little different take.

- The pilot for a TV show that Mark A's brother was working on that we posted a story about a month or so ago is still in the works. It would be based in Milwaukee, but not many other details are known besides that it would be about the criminal justice system.

- The Mets appear to be close to signing Claudio Vargas. I can't believe he's been a free agent this long. Maybe his trade value really was absolutely nothing.
