Open Thread of There For the Taking

The Cubs lost in fairly devastating fashion today, thanks to 3 runs scored by Hermedia. That means the Crew is a half game out with Bush on the mound today. Hopefully his luck holds up at home, because for some unknown reason, Craig Counsell is in the line up at short. Conspicuously absent against yet another right handed pitcher is Branyan. I'm befuddled.

Just so everyone is fully informed, this mythical hot streak Bill Hall is on has produced the following over the last 14 days:

.172/.250/.379 for an OPS of .629.

If someone can explain it to me I'd be stoked because I certainly don't get it.

2B Ray Durham
SS Craig Counsell
LF Ryan Braun
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Bill Hall
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
RHP Dave Bush

Game starts in 40 minutes or so. Go Crew!

Branyan v. Backe:
2/5 HR, BB, K

Hall v. Backe:
2/11 HR, BB, 4K

Just so you can't claim Yost is playing the match ups.
