Game Thread: 04/21 Padres vs. Brewers

Benny Sieu-USA TODAY Sports

The Brewers are so nervous to face Andrew Cashner tonight it's making them physically ill. They're playing it off as a "bug," but we all know the truth.

I don't always get to watch Padres Live before games but I've watched it the past couple of days. I remember back in the Channel 4 SD days, they would have Bob Scanlan on the pregame show and they'd have "Scan's Keys to the Game," which were always helpful, well-thought-out analyses of the matchups for each particular game. From what I've seen on FSSD lately, "Keys to the Game" are usually some form of this:

... which isn't helpful or well-thought-out at all. Basically their winning strategy is "1) Pitch well. 2) Keep the other team from hitting. 3) ???? 4) PROFIT!!!!"

So I'm gonna invite you all to leave your own keys to the game in the comments and we'll see if you can come up with something better. I'm betting you can.

ANYWAY... lineups!
