Open Thread of Late Night Entertainment

You know how we all thought this Brewers team was so incredibly deep? Jesus is it being tested this week:

2B Rickie Weeks
SS JJ Hardy
LF Gabe Kapler
1B Prince Fielder
RF Corey Hart
3B Craig Counsell
CF Mike Cameron
C Jason Kendall
P Manny Parra

That is some ugly shit. Kapler in the three hole, Counsell in the major leagues...u-g-l-y. The Dodgers have their best pitcher going (not Ace material) tonight, so it'll be interesting to see if the Brewers can scratch a few runs against him.

It's easy to see why Cameron would be in there tonight and not Nix. Cameron has a very solid .170 OPS against Billingsley in 18 plate appearances. Ray Durham, on the other hand, has had the most sustained success against Chad, (.969 OPS) so obviously he's riding pine tonight.

Other than those two, no one has even 5 at-bats.

Oh, and if you are keeping track, since August 10th, when he went 2-3, drove in 3 and was on base 5 times Mike Rivera has not sniffed the diamond.
