Lots of lefties against Florida's Sanchez

With Mike Cameron out of the lineup with his sore left knee and Corey Hart getting what appears to be a day off, the Brewers are starting six left-handed hitters against Anibal Sanchez tonight.

Ryan Braun, by the way, is back in. He fouled a pitch off his calf last night and later left the game in a double-switch, but manager Ken Macha insisted the move wasn’t injury-related.

Here are the lineups:

Craig Counsell  2B
Frank Catalanotto  RF
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
J.J. Hardy  SS
Mat Gamel  3B
Jody Gerut  CF
Jason Kendall  C
Manny Parra  LHP

Emilio Bonifacio  3B
Jeremy Hermida  LF
Hanley Ramirez  SS
Jorge Cantu  1B
Dan Uggla  2B
Cody Ross  CF
Ronny Paulino  C
Brett Carroll  RF
Anibal Sanchez  RHP

No sign of Mike Burns yet, by the way. We were just kicked out of the clubhouse for what appeared to be Kangaroo Court, with Judge Hoffman presiding. Wonder if Burns will wander in during the middle of it an incur his first fine.

And on a much more somber note, reliever Mark DiFelice received word this morning that his paternal grandmother, Olga, had passed away in Philadelphia. He expects to leave the team on Saturday to attend the funeral on Sunday. DiFelice is unavailable tonight because of a sore right elbow but he hopes to resume throwing on Wednesday.

Who was Hoffman putting on trial?
