Bring on the Brewers

I don't know if there's a team in baseball in a worse tailspin than the Brewers are right now. They've lost five in a row, their rotation is in shambles after Yovani Gallardo's injury, their bullpen is mostly a mess, and players are openly criticizing each other in the media. A sweep at the hands of the lowly Pirates may very well be Ned Yost's last stand. Today they're sending Manny Parra out to the hill. He's a decent prospect, but he's been really bad so far this year. He'll face off agains Paul Maholm, who always benefits from the giant left-field at PNC Park. Ready to be tantalizingly close to .500 again?
