Open Thread of Death of a Platoon

No Branyan but Hart is back in there. It'll be interesting to see when Branyan goes back in. Guess we are yet again at the mercy of Ned Yosts gut. We all remember how well that worked last year right?

In this case though, it looks like Yost may actually be playing the numbers, as Weeks and Hall have fared better than Durham and Branyan against Looper.

Here's hoping the dealer busts as Yost yet again presses his luck and stays on 10*.

2B Rickie Weeks
SS JJ Hardy
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Bill Hall
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
P CC Sabathia


*see that Danny, I can make up my own shit completely unrelated to yours.


Game starts in like 2 hours or something, but I'm sick of the Reds being our top discussion. While we are waiting and I am doing more important things, someone do me a favor and figure out the Brewers record since May 25th.

EDIT: Thanks to Fred, who informed us that the record since May 25th (when Branyan played in his first game this year, and the hard platoon began) the Brewers are 34-14. Three straight games on Hall hitting against righties is a fair enough signal that Yost is off the Cialis, and this platoon is officially soft. Just an interesting side note in the middle of the season.
