Macha empties the bench

All of the Brewers’ reserves except backup catcher Mike Rivera are in action today, as manager Ken Macha and hitting coach Dale Sveum give a break to a number of slumping regulars. Here’s the rather unconventional lineup:

Craig Counsell  SS
Frank Catalanotto  RF
Ryan Braun  LF
Prince Fielder  1B
Mat Gamel  3B
Casey McGehee 2B
Jody Gerut  CF
Jason Kendall  C
Yovani Gallardo  RHP

General manager Doug Melvin was in the dugout during batting practice, and offered the line of the day this morning when he was talking about amaeur scouting Bruce Seid replacing the popular Jack Zduriencik.

“I told Bruce the other day,” Melvin said, “‘Bruce, don’t think that you have to fill Jack’s shoes.  Wear your own shoes and create your own footprint.”

Very impressive, Doug. That sounds like something off a greeting card or a motivational poster.

“Jack Daniels and I came up with that the other night,” Melvin joked.


A joke from Doug Melvin? Wow!

Now we are going to see some baseball action tonight… It is about time… YES…. I have not given up on the Brewers. Tonight is an awesome lineup… Sweet!!!!!!!
