403 foot HR by Dee Gordon? He has evidently been eating his Wheaties. What a Beast! Let’s just hope he doesn’t start trying to do that….
I don’t put too much stock in the fact that Lindblom and Jansen got rocked a little last night – Hey, it’s Coors and you just don’t get much “bite” in your pitches. They haven’t pitched much there, if at all. What surprised me is that Mattingly didn’t use Jamey Wright! The Dodgers will have some more options soon, but they will also have to make some choices. Scott Elbert has pitched only 6-1/3 innings. If that is all they are going to use him, they might as well give his spot to Belisario. They might lose him to a waiver claim, but what have they lost if they don’t use him? Hopefully, a healthy Matt Guerrier will be back soon too. Mike MacDougal could be the odd-man-out!
The Dodgers need Jamey Wright, Ron Belisario and Matt Guerrier to step up and eat some innings.
Steve Dilbeck of The LA Times has 10 tough questions for the new owners. I wonder how many they will answer?
It’s an afternoon at Coors with Kershaw at the helm.
