  6. Brewers benefit from D-backs' mistakes

    David Schoenfield

    Sometimes risks are calculated gambles that pay off. Sometimes risks are just dumb. The Brewers, after winning Game 1 over the Diamondbacks, took a calculated gamble by starting Zack Greinke on three days' rest in Game 2. Greinke had started th...

    David Schoenfield

    Ubaldo Jimenez allowed just seven runs over his first 11 starts in 2010. His 2011 debut was a little ugly, with six runs in six innings, including home runs to Miguel Montero and Justin Upton. Most worrisome (yes, it's Opening Day, so all worry even ...

  14. Opening Day observations, part 2

    David Schoenfield
