One lineup used by manager Ron Roenicke in the Brewers' intrasquad game Saturday could make its official debut on opening day, April 6 against St. Louis. "Looks pretty close, doesn't it?" Roenicke quipped. The first eight spots in the lineup went like this: 2B Rickie Weeks CF Nyjer Morgan LF Ryan Braun 3B Aramis Ramirez RF Corey Hart 1B Mat Gamel SS Alex Gonzalez C Jonathan Lucroy Plug in right-hander Yovani Gallardo in the ninth spot, and barring injury, that should be your opening day lineup. Roenicke explained why he likes that lineup, in particular with Weeks batting first and Hart fifth. Toward the end of last season, before Weeks injured an ankle, he was moved back to fifth, switching places with Hart.
Roenicke places Weeks at top of order
