Open Thread of Must Wins and the Muscle

Branyan is in, Hall is out. Durham is in, Weeks is out. Based on the numbers below, Ned is dumb. Hall should still be in there (I know, I know) and Counsell should probably be playing ahead of Weeks. However, this is the lineup we get and I'm going to refrain from picking too hard at the nits.

2B Ray Durham
SS J.J. Hardy
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Russell Branyan
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
RHP Ben Sheets

Game doesn't start for 3 hours but you can keep yourself occupied with the Braves-Cardinals which starts in two. I'll be busying myself with capacity utilization, Six Sigma and Ishikawa's crack pot theories on management. Hopefully by the time I am outta here Zambrano will have been knocked out by a Branyan bomb in the 4th.

Game starts at 7...Go Crew!!

Incidentally, Haudricourt says you can justify sitting Hall with stats, then sites only batting average, and not even Branyan's, and doesn't let his eye drift slightly right to see the rest of the line (provided in the previous post). Odd.
