Brewers are finally done playing the Cardinals and Dodgers.  The schedule doesn't get any easier for them though.  They now play 13 straight days against the Mets, Rockies, Nationals, and Mets again.   Christian Yelich's crazy early home and away splits:  he's hitting .417/.540/1.271 with 13 homers and on the road he's hitting only .227/.306/.273 without a single homer.  The pitching matchups:

Friday, April 26th - 6:10 p.m. CDT
Chase Anderson vs. Jacob deGrom

Saturday, April 27th - 6:10 p.m. CDT
Brandon Woodruff vs. Noah Syndergaard

Sunday, April 28th - 12:10 p.m. CDT
Zach Davies vs. Steven Matz

Brewers smash deGrom and the Mets, 10-2, without hitting any HRs...

Beating deGrom is a solid outing.  Games like last night don't occur often with him.  Now seeing Thor today will be another challenge, but he has struggled lately and maybe the same result.  Aguilar vs. Thames - it is hard to sit Thames right now in favor of Aguilar.  Aguilar will probably have to sit again today and be back in the lineup tomorrow vs. Matz.  

Guerra is back today and someone will get sent out.  And if Peralta has a good day today,  he could be back the end of next week.  And Jimmy Nelson is making a rehab start today.  Probably the first of several, but it is a big day for him.

Chalk that one up to the offense - a good outing from Woodruff and a game saving effort by Josh Hader.  The bats are still alive thankfully.  But, we can't ignore the implosion once again of the bullpen.  Guerra had a nice bounce back effort after being gone for a few days, but Alex Wilson once again leaves balls out over the plate and can't miss bats, Claudio gives up a 3 run bomb to get the Mets back into the game and Jeffress continues to throw 92 mph fastballs in the middle of the plate.  

Alex Wilson can't continue much longer.  His 9+ ERA is just not sustainable and he can not be used at this point.  Jeffress is not right.  For him to go from throwing 96-97 with some movement to 91-92 without just doesn't happen without a reason.   He probably needs to be shut down.  However, subtracting these two leaves who to fill the gaps??  Obviously, Craig Kimbrel is the best option, but he comes with a high cost and he won't be ready to pitch for a while.  So, he isn't a reasonable fix.  Internally, at some point with his early success in San Antonio, Burch Smith could be an option.  23+ innings and only given up 9 hits and an ERA under .5.  Not a reliever per say, but is getting people out.  Corbin Burnes has bounced back and looked better.  7+ innings with 10 k's and 0 runs.  With Gonzalez back into the picture, he could move back into the pen.  CC has talked of him being a starter, but for now, he is needed in the pen.  A pure reliever is Jay Jackson.  8 2/3 with 14 k's and and has yet to give up a run.  

So there are a couple internal options.  I am ready to bring those guys in and get things shored up.

And on cue, Yelich has 5 hits, including a homer, in the first two games of the Mets series. I would expect those splits to get closer to even as the season goes along. Yelich is to good for that not to happen.
