Gameday: April 2 vs. White Sox

Crushed my last pork chop last night at Frasher’s (2122 N. Scottsdale Rd. for the transplants living in the Valley — go there, order the chop, the gooey butter cake and a Miller Lite and tell George, Kevin, Tim, Derek and the rest of the guys I sent you. You’ll thank me later). That means I am officially ready for the Brewers’ final Cactus League game.

Ryan Braun and Bill Hall are back in what looks like an Opening Day lineup against the White Sox. Braun missed Wednesday’s game with a bruised thumb but told manager Ken Macha on Thursday morning that he wanted to start today, and Hall missed the last two games after having a tooth pulled. Jeff Suppan is on the hill for his final time before Opening Day, though Macha was still hesitant to make it official.

“If Suppan comes through this fine, you can put him down as the Opening Day starter,” the skipper told beat writers this morning.

Here’s the lineup:

Rickie Weeks  2B
Corey Hart  RF
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
J.J. Hardy  SS
Mike Cameron  CF
Bill Hall  3B
Jason Kendall  C
Jeff Suppan  RHP

Mark DiFelice, Mitch Stetter and Carlos Villanueva are scheduled to follow Suppan.
