It’s early, and the season is long, and all that, but the Brewers could really use a win. Even the mot faithful fans will be wary of their chances this afternoon, because just as the Crew’s momentum has turned a few degrees downward, Jeff Suppan returns from the DL for his first start of the year.
To put it kindly, few would be surprised if the team left Chicago tomorrow night in a slightly sorrier state. Regardless of what happens in this last game at Wrigley, it’s back to the top of the order for the weekend in Washington, D.C.
