Back home, to face the Brewers, and a taste of what might have been, in the shape of former D'back, Chris Capuano, the first pitcher to get 15 wins for Milwaukee in over a decade. Quick, who did we trade him away for? Answer at the end of this preview.

Indeed, something of a reunion here, as the Brewers' lineup also features Lyle Overbay and Damian Miller. They still have faint wild-card hopes, lurking 5 1/2 back of the Astros at the moment, after taking the series vs. Houston over the weekend, though much like us, there's a lot of traffic between them and the leaders.

We send up Javier Vazquez and...well, we'll see. Last time he was both awful (12 hits) and fabulous (2 runs over six innings) in the same outing, so who knows what we'll get this time? It is, at least, the youngsters getting a run-out today, with room for Green, Jackson, Tracy and Terrero in the starting line-up.

IZW Wrestling tonight, so won't get to see much of the game, but I look forward to reading about it here later! :-) I've even enabled anonymous posting, so you no longer need to register, but more on that tomorrow. And the answer to the trivia question? We traded Capuano as a minor part of the Richie Sexson trade, also getting Shane Nance and Noochie Varner. How'd that one work out?
