Get the broom out

With a win tonight, the Brewers remain hot and really stick it to the Cardinals. Or, maybe it could be the storyline that coincides with this possible sweep. Due to the rain out, former Cardinal Braden Looper will take the hill tonight against the man that replaced him in the rotation. The Cards didn't even try to retain Looper, and instead signed Kyle Lohse for four years, $41 million. Looper started the year well, but his last few starts have been shaky. He has posted a 1-2 record with a 7.71 ERA in his last three starts.

Hopefully, if Looper can pitch into the 6th inning with minimum damage and the bats are hitting, the Brew Crew should be in good shape. And maybe silence Matthew Leach of MLB.COM. Then again my post is probably a demonstration of the Brewers and their swagger.

And bad news for Rickie Weeks, the Brewers sent him to Arizona to see Don Sheridan -- who performed his last wrist surgery in 2005. Hopefully, this is just a precaution and Weeks can just hit the 15 day DL and get back quickly. Otherwise, more bad luck for Weeks as he is having his best year in the bigs.
