Your 2010 Milwaukee Brewers...

So it looks as if the opening day roster is all but set:

SP-Yovani Gallardo
SP-Randy Wolf
SP-Doug Davis
SP-Dave Bush
SP-Jeff Suppan

Closer-Trevor Hoffman
RP-Todd Coffey
RP-LaTroy Hawkins
RP-Claudio Vargas
RP-Chris Narveson
RP-Manny Parra
RP-Mitch Stetter

Odd man out would be Carlos Villanueva who is the only one with a minor league option left. Sending Chuckie down would allow the Crew to maintain the starting pitching depth until someone gets hurt or cut (ahem...Suppan). So don't expect Villanueva to be in AAA for too long.

c-Gregg Zaun
1b-Prince Fielder
2b-Rickie Weeks
ss-Alcides Escobar
3b-Casey McGehee
lf-Ryan Braun
cf-Carlos Gomez
rf-Corey Hart

bench c-George Kottaras
bench if-Craig Counsell
bench of-Jim Edmonds
bench of-Jody Gerut
bench if-Joe Inglett

No major suprises here with Gamel hurt and Edmonds deciding he wants to play again. An all lefty hitting bench is a little bit of a concern.

Opening day is 6 days is almost here!

Oh good. Sunky McSunkcost made the team. Fantastic.

Ooohh, I hope Bushy grows back his beard. I'm going to switch from calling him Grizzly Adams to calling him Epic Beard Man.

The leash for Suppan has to be ridiculously short. I know he's a nice guy, I know Attanasio loves him, I know Melvin doesn't want to make the team eat another bad contract, but that's the way it's gotta be. The team cannot afford to let him go out there every 5th day and torpedo the team with a 4 inning, 10 hit, 6 run outing. Which then has to be cleaned up by 4 different relievers. The damage isn't just done in losing the game he starts, it affects the next 3 games because we have to use the entire damn bullpen after he fails to get out of the 4th. Ugh. Prove me wrong Soup, prove all of us wrong. Please.
