Less than two weeks after shutting down Zack Greinke for a start because of over-use, Tyler Thornburg left tonight's game after being put in for a second inning in back to back games. Thornburg spent the early parts of the season as a starter and is claiming fatigue on the arm, saying he's not used to the bounce-back needed to be a relief pitcher. But the real question is, why did he get sent back...

Let me preface this by saying that I despised Ned Yost and thought Ken Macha was a clown, so it's going to take a lot for me to really dislike Ron Roenicke.

With Nyjer Morgan on the DL and Carlos Gomez struggling at the plate, manager Ron Roenicke has decided to play Mark Kotsay in center field. Unfortunately for us, this experiment went well in its first iteration. He was 3-for-4 with 2 RBI. He was pulled in the 9th inning in favor of Gomez defensively. This bought him another chance.  In the second attempt, he was 0-for-4. He was in CF for about 6 ...

My twitter stream today brought me a high and a low in about 5 minutes. J-S Brewers beat writer Tom Haudricourt tweeted that Nyjer Morgan had returned to the team from the DL and would be replacing Carlos Gomez in the two-hole of the batting order for tonight's game. A few minutes later, Haudricourt tweeted that the tarp was on the field in Atlanta and they were expecting quite a bit of rain. W...
