Notes:

-Yovani Gallardo comes in having a little bit of a down hear so far and despite the fact that he could have killed someone when he was pulled over with a DUI a few weeks ago Major League Baseball seems to think that is OK. He has been better (pitching wise) in his last two starts going 6.2 innings giving up eight hits and three earned runs in a 6-3 win over the Padres.

-Rodriguez is coming off a so-so start against the Phillies where he went only 5.2 innings and gave up nine hits and three runs. Rodriguez has been the staff ace thus far so I expect a good outing from him tonight.

-Russell Martin was honored with the NL Player of the Week honor after hitting .375 with four home runs (lead the NL) and a .958 slugging percentage.

-I hate the Brewers.
