Sheets to start Opening Day

23 03 2008

Ben Sheets says it never gets old.  Yesterday, Ned Yost named Sheets the Opening Day starter for Milwaukee’s game against the Chicago Cubs next week.  This was perhaps one of the worst kept secrets the Brewers have.

One secret Yost is keeping very close to his chest is his starting rotation behind Sheets and Jeff Suppan.  Nobody knows who is going to make up the other three spots, but it should become clear within the next few days.  Yost also said that he may have the fourth starter be someone who can handle the home opener.  I don’t know why, but I got the feeling that Ned meant Dave Bush when he said that.

Later in the article, Doug Melvin notes that he’s not looking to trade an outfielder now.  That is, until Mike Cameron gets back in the starting lineup after his suspension.  That does imply that he will be looking to move an outfielder (probably Gabe Gross) in May or June.

What would you like to see the Brewers do?  You all play GM a bit.
