Hairston starts at SS

Jerry Hairston Jr., in an 0-for-18 funk and as of the weekend receiving treatment for a stiff neck, must be feeling better because he is starting tonight at shortstop as the Brewers open a three-game series against the Cubs. It’s Hairston’s first start there this season, but he has plenty of experience including 53 starts at short for the Padres in 2010. In all, he’s made 114 starts there before tonight.

Hairston gets the nod over Yuniesky Betancourt, who was 2-for-12 in the Cincinnati series and is hitting .178 over his last 31 games.

Here’s the full lineup:

Corey Hart RF
Nyjer Morgan CF
Ryan Braun LF
Prince Fielder 1B
Rickie Weeks 2B
Casey McGehee 3B
Jerry Hairston Jr. SS
Jonathan Lucroy C
Chris Narveson LHP

Can someone please tell me why oh why is Casey McGhee in the line up AGAIN tonight?

Baby steps… baby steps… First Yuni, and the rest will hopefully follow.
