You've now hit all the sentence-ending punctuations. Congrats to you!

As for Milwaukee, they better get real creative with their rotation, or it'll be a quick series.

Sabathia looks like he could pitch another 150 or so innings in the next month without much trouble.

That's probably what they were saying last year. You certainly don't run him out on Game 1. Does he do Game 2 with only three days rest again? I'd hold him until Game 3, hope Sheets is good for Game 2. Gallardo or Suppan for Game 1?

We were at the game yesterday - easily the best and most exciting game I've ever been too. Great crowd, nothing like what I read about the last Brewers-Cubs game. Just wonderful to see the Cubs fans go silent after Ryan's home run.

If the Brewers win game 1, save Sabathia until game 3. But if the Brewers lose the first game, then put C.C. in for the next game.

Anyone got tickets for the playoffs? I made it to one playoff game and one series game in '82.

My impression of the interview I saw with CC is that he fully intends to pitch game 1.

ESPN Radio's been saying Game 2, on 3 days rest. Game 1 would be 2 days rest, which is ridiculous even for CC.

Sheets is probably not a go, CC will not pitch on 2 days rest, and if they lose game one they should start him on 3 days rest again. If they win game one, they should rest him for Saturday's game three. See what happened to CC in the playoffs last year after Cleveland rode his arm down the stretch. There is a breaking point, even for a big guy like him.

Really, I have purely selfish reasons for Sveum pushing him back, I'm going to game three.

Do we refer to Gallardo as Yo-Ga?
