Weekday Day Game GameThread: Jays @ Brewers

We are treated to a weekday day game. It caught me by surprise. It seems funny, the Jays have tomorrow off, so there is no rush to get to the airport and the Brewers are still at home tomorrow. Is it some sort of holiday in Milwaukee?

The game of musical third basemen ends with Martin at third. Day game after night game, so he gets a day off from behind the plate. Coghlan is in left again....I'd much rather see Dwight Smith there, but I'm not sure if Smith could get to Milwaurkee quick enough. Maile behind the plate, the Brewers stole 4 bases last night (well Villar stole 3 and Thames got one as the back end of a double play). Maile seems to have an impressive arm.

Best news? Our slugger, Stroman gets to bat. Best the Brewers can hope is to keep him in the ball park.He's going to want to go to an NL team if he gets a hit or two today.

Stroman has been pretty good, over his last five starts, minus the game against the Yankees. He's given up a fair number of hits but not too many runs.

Matt Garza has been pretty good too:

As always, remember we have rules around there. Mostly it's "don't be terrible". If a moderator ask you to stop doing something, please stop. Remember losing makes Tom a wee bit grumpy. Also don't debate the rules in the thread. Send Tom a note instead (he doesn't get near enough email).
