This weeks Daybreak Doppler Dames theme is ‘2010 Top 5 Draft Picks’.
Yovani Gallardo finally had the night we were all waiting for him to have as the Brewers shut out the Pirates 8 – 0 last night. It was a boost for the team and more likely than not a bigger boost for Yo to get some much needed confidence back. Disciples of Uecker has your recap here .

I’ve always wondered why anyone would need the ‘Unattended Children’ sign in the first place. If you’re that crappy of a parent in the first place to need a sigh to tell you to keep an eye on your kids when out why are you even taking them outside of the house, much less having kids in the first place.

- Some last second Draft thoughts from Unpacked.
- If you want to spend the first night of the Draft with other Packer fans, either head over to Cheesehead Nations Draft Coverage or the forums at PackerChatters.com . Either place will keep you occupied well beyond your bedtime.
What I think will happen – Alright, it’s Draft day…or at least Day 1. I’ll keep my well known (I hate it) thoughts on the new format to myself for just once. I think, as much as I would really want to see it, the Packers do not trade up. Two years in a row is just too much to expect and too out of character for Ted Thompson. Looking at what is there at pick #23, I think the Packers GM eschews the needs of an OT and goes defense, primarily a safety named Taylor Mays from USC. If that happens, I wouldn’t be unhappy and do believe it would provide a tangible improvement to the Packers secondary.
