The Brewers face the kind of pitcher they hate. An unknown. John Niese is the best arm in the Mets organization (they traded everything else for Santana), and they are throwing him into the fire tonight. (It's nice of the Brewers to offer the 7-8-9 spots as reprieve).

He's got decent velocity and gets a lot of ground balls. I don't like this one bit. Hopefully a large Milwaukee crowd can show up and rattle him. If they could get into Santana's head and induce a balk (I'm in a generous mood) then hopefully they can really shake Niese.
