Brewers Lineup For Game One

The Brewers' lineup is in, and it looks like Prince Fielder and Ryan Braun are on the bench.

Corey Hart - RF
Nyjer Morgan - CF
Ryan Braun - LF
Prince Fielder - 1B
Rickie Weeks - 2B
Jerry Hairston - 3B
Yuniesky Betancourt - SS
Jonathan Lucroy - C
Yovani Gallardo - P

Oh, wait, there they are.

No real surprises, as Corey Hart has been the leadoff hitter since Rickie Weeks went down to injury. Hart ended up having a pretty fantastic year with the bat, so Ron Roenicke left him where he was when Weeks returned. Nyjer Morgan has the traditional speed that a lot of managers are enamored of in a leadoff hitter, but Roenicke likes his #2 hitter to do #2-hitter things, and Morgan's as good a candidate as any.

Hairston gets the start at third base against a right-hander over Casey McGehee, who got sucked into a BABIP vortex this year.

The Brewers were second in the National League with a 102 team OPS+, tied with the ... Mets?
