The home plate ump tonight is ANDY FLETCHER, who averages 7.68 runs, 14.2 Ks, and 7.1 BBs, per game. The games he calls are lower scoring than most umps. (Source: The Umpire Report (http://www.vegasinsider.com/mlb/stats/umpire-report/))

Being that each team has already scored a run in the first, we shall see if averages hold up.

I don't know. His last outing was damned good. He didn't get the W, but he should have.

http://sports.espn.go.com/mlb/boxscore?gameId=280705117

6.0 ip / 6 hits / 1 r / 1 bb / 1 k / 102 pc

He's missing more bats tonight though. That minor stint may have done him some good.

Yeah at this point you wonder if it's time to move him while he still has some of the potential tag left.

I also wonder if he's simply over-worked year round and has had bad coaching for too long.

We've been hanging onto to his plate discipline and range for a long time now. You wonder if he's really going to improve or become consistent at this point, or not, or if some coaching and some more time-off in the off season, will turn him around...still young.

6 k's in 5 innings. I know what his history is, but he's been a different pitcher since he's come back. He's thrown a gem so far, I at least give him a chance to get out of it.

Bill Hall...

vs RH'd pitchers..... .161 BA .219 OB% .305 SLG% .524 OPS
vs LH'd pitchers..... .371 BA .430 OB% .674 SLG% 1.104 OPS

So I have no problem with removing Bray. But I would have brought in Burton, not Majik.

Right. But Burton is the 8th inning guy. If only the Brewers would've waited a couple innings. Just bad luck is all.........

True. But you have to worry about the inning (situation) you were presently in. ;)

And I have far more faith in Burton there then Majik.

Of course he would've. No chance he would've whiffed...like Griffey just did.

Simply put, you just don't pinch hit for Keppinger or Hairston on this team. There isn't anybody who puts the bat on the ball better than those two do on our club. Period.

Unfortunately, here's the problem as I see it. We've still got the 7th, 8th & 9th to pitch in. Cordero's got the 9th, Burton's got the 8th. Bray's been used. That means Weathers will take the 7th. That means we'll be down going into the 8th. *pray's he's wrong*

I just watched the replay. I think it grazed him on the face. You can see him reach up for his cheek afterwards. A few inches the other way could've been pretty bad.
