Lineup Card: Rockies vs Brewers

Last night's recap... (here)

Thoughts on Jeff Francis... (here)

Watched a little bit of Dante Bichette Jr. in the Under Armour All-American Game today at Wrigley Field.  Strong kid.  He has committed to Georgia, but I think we'll be hearing a lot about him making a decision between college and MLB next summer.

Wouldn't be a bit surprised to see him knocking on the doors of MLB in the next 3-4 years.

Rockies Lineup (60-55)
  1. 2B  Young
  2. 1B  Helton
  3. LF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. RF  Spilborghs
  6. 3B  Stewart
  7. C    Iannetta
  8. CF  Fowler
  9. P     Rogers
Fowler hitting 8th against the left-hander?  Alright.  I think I would have eased Young back into the lineup by hitting him 8th, but whatever Jim Tracy thinks.  Hopefully he's smarter than I am this evening.

Brewers Lineup (54-63)
  1. 2B  Weeks
  2. RF  Hart
  3. LF  Braun
  4. 1B  Fielder
  5. 3B  McGehee
  6. CF  Dickerson
  7. SS  Escobar
  8. C    Lucroy
  9. P    Narveson
