    Brewers still have not announced their starter for today. Has to be Chacin, right? Why don't they want to say? The bullpen is rested.. but what if they need it tomorrow?

    Nope. Brewers still holding that one close to the vest.

    TBA vs Quintana in the early game,
    Marquez vs Buehler in the late game.


    I wouldn't think they'd tank today as a bullpen game knowing they'd have to play a single elimination game tomorrow.

    Chacin, per McCalvy about 2 minutes ago.

    and a bullpen game for the Brewers is not "tanking".

    Bullpen game today would make some sense with full rosters today...have to do 25-man roster tomorrow...

    I don't know, I kinda think we were in their heads, but bring on the Rockies!

    I went to bed after the 9th. When the Cubs tied it up I said to myself "oh great, they're going to get momentum and win this then go up and steal two in Milwaukee."

    Glad the Rockies won, but not sure how I feel about the Brewers playing them.

    This cubs team has some serious offense problems that have been on display against all opponents. Colorado last night is an example. From what I've read and seen on Chi and local media, they definitely don't let other teams get into their heads, though. In fact, Madden is sometimes criticized for the opposite--having his team too laid back.

    I just think the Brewers are the better team at this time. They have better hitting across the lineup and they have a stronger bull pen, especially with the Cubs' top two closers unavailable against Milw. Even with Strop and Morrow in the mix, Milw's pen is probably still better.

    The Brewers should be representing the Central, and I hope they go all the way.

    It will be very interesting to see how they do going back to 25 players. I'm intrigued to see who makes the NLDS roster.

    Some interesting decisions to make. I think Santana definitely in - he has been surprisingly great at PH. Broxton and Thames not likely. Bullpen - who knows? Guerra's been good and Williams hasn't lately. But they only need 4 starters, so there's an extra spot somewhere.

    I think the biggest surprise of game 163 was Arcia. WOW. Kid picked a really good time for his first 4 hit game after struggling all season. I'm excited to see what he does.

    Counsell says it'll be Bullpen Day in Game 1, Chacin in Game 2.

    They are all "out getters", you know.

    edit: they also said Chacin will be on short rest, so they don't expect him to pitch many innings.

    I'm aware, but these new stats are starting to scare me. Someone hold me.

    Roster is out. No Anderson, Davies, Cedeno, Jennings, Williams or Thames.

    Cedeno hadn't impressed lately, but i thought Jennings was OK.

    Only 7 players with previous postseason experience.

    Woodruff will be the first out-getter today.

    I'm quite fine with Woodruff being the opener...I would expect him to go 2 or 3 innings if it goes well...seems to me Counsell is going to try to get through today with 3-5 pitchers and focus on guys that can each go 2-3 innings, but who knows

    I guess having T Plush throw out the first pitch worked out OK.

    However, we were unable to tell who delivered the lineup card. At this point in the season, can they keep putting pressure on Vogt?

    that was a pretty awesome game for 9 of 10 innings...I didn't get to watch most of the 2nd half...how did Jeffress look?
