Camelback Ranch – GameTime, Sat. March 19

Camelback Ranch – GameTime, Sat. March 19

With the likelihood that Casey Blake will start the season on the DL, Ivan DeJesus, Jr. is back in the mix to start the season at 2B.  He would push Uribe over to 3B and Miles could still make the team along with Carroll to serve as Utilitymen, but there’s a lot to be decided [...]

Cheryl Goes To The DL

Cheryl Goes To The DL

The Dodger blogosphere was white hot with who was going to be sent down to make room for Rafael Furcal.  Would it be Ramon Ortiz, Nick Green, or (God forbid) Blake DeWitt?  In the end, it was George “Cheryl” Sherrill who went on the DL with a strained ego, ‘er back.  Yeah, that’s the ticket! [...]

Let’s Play Two

Let’s Play Two

Due to yesterday’s rain-out, the Mets and Dodgers will allegedly play two, meteorologists willing… Kuroda and Haeger will pitch for the Dodgers.  Kuroda goes against Santana in Game 1, this afternoon.  1:10 PDT or 4:10 EDT John Ely looks like the odds-on-favorite to replace Padilla, at least THIS week.  He’s on the 40-Man is why!

Blind Squirrels Need Nuts

Blind Squirrels Need Nuts

Let’s hope!   Blind squirrels hopefully can find some nuts tonight.  Am I calling Vicente Padilla a Blind Squirrel? SHOOT, NO! Just a coincidence! The pen is thin tonight.  By actual count we have Monasterios, Russ Ortiz, Ramon Troncoso and God knows who else available after the pen pitched 260 innings the last 3 days. [...]
