Angels 11, Brewers 4

The Brewers didn't exactly trot out their best lineup Tuesday when the took on the Los Angeles Angels of Anaheim (are we done making jokes about their name yet? I think we are). Look at this power lineup: Escobar, Nunez, Dillon, Rivera, Rottino, Kapler, Chavez, Gwynn, and Nix. There's a legitimate chance that none of those guys could make the final roster. I'm sure a few of them well, but we have to remember, if Spring Training was an NFL Preseason game, we're late in the 3rd quarter right now.

The lineup did alright though, they collected ten hits and scored four runs. Mike Rivera had 2 hits as well as 2 RBI's. However, pitching doomed the Brewers in this one, namely Jeff Suppan. In 4 2/3 innings, Soup gave up six hits and six earned runs, bumping his Spring Training ERA to 11.37. But remember, he's still a lock to make the team because he makes ten million a year and he gives money to charity. Turnbow and Gagne struggled at the back end of the bullpen as well. Gagne's ERA this spring is 11.25. But he's a lock to make the team because he makes ten million a year and he's a good guy. I understand these pitchers are working out the kinks right now and that these numbers really don't matter, but my 23rd round selection of David Riske in a fantasy draft isn't looking too bad right now.

The Brewers are off Wednesday, and then take on the Royals Thursday night.

Box Score.

David Riske in your fantasy league?!

Please tell me it's a 14+ team league.

16 teams, 24 rounds. It took 3 1/2 hours to do online. We'll have it posted this weekend (cheap plug).
