Here’s today’s powerhouse lineup for Nori Aoki Bobblehead Day At $8.50 Miller Park:
Aoki RF .285
Gomez CF .105
Segura SS .500
Weeks 2B .421
Gonzalez 3B .063
Schafer LF .500
Betancourt 1B .250
Maldonado C .000
Gallardo P .000
Notably absent: Ramirez, now on the 15 Day DL, ensuring yet another slow start, and Braun, day-to-day, with a pain in his neck.
Also the absence of Corey Hart has created a ripple effect throughout the stagnant offense. Not a real positive vibe going up against the likes of Ian Kennedy and the rest of the Snakes today.

Albeit it’s only April 7th,but the panic buttons have been pushed repeatedly already, and it appears the Screwers are heading into a permanent home at the bottom of the NL Comedy Central, at least for April.
Blew Notes: The team ERA is 5.48 which ranks Mildoggie 13 out of 15 in the NL, and 27 out 30 overall in MLB. Axford has given up a blown save, 3 HRS and owns a 21.60 ERA in two appearances. Braun leads the team in RBI with 4. Chris Davis of Baltimore has 17 RBI to lead the majors through 5 games.
