Things to look for:
1. The playoffs start now for the Brewers–Can the players rebound from the firing of their manager and their recent struggles to win these must win games?
2. Will Sabathia get win #16 on Tuesday night…or will Dempster snare it away?
3. Manager Dale Sveum announced a new lineup for Tuesday, with Mike Cameron batting leadoff, Ray Durham starting at second and batting second, with J.J Hardy batting fifth, the slumping Corey Hart hitting sixth, and veteran Craig Counsell playing third and batting seventh…will this help get the offense out of their funk?
