gooooood morning Dodger blue!-Dodgers/Cubs game-2

Dodgers Lineup

Ted Lilly 1-2 vs. Ryan Dempster 1-2

the Dodgers are fresh off of winning three in a row, look to keep their momentum going in wrigley for the second game of the three game series.
Aaron Miles? why? why oh why???? and why sit Uribe when hes finally gotten hot? hes hit two home runs in the last two games, and has had like 6 hits? but he rests today. Big Rod is back in the lineup,  Sandman bats behind Kemp.

apprently according to various sources, former braves executive Stan Kasten, appears to be the front runner, to land the MLB appointed trustee position, to oversee the Dodgers. as you know MLB and the Commissioner's office have taken over the Dodgers finances, and all day-day operations of the club. Frank Mccourt is acused of general shady practices, after not only asking FOX for 200 million dollars in advanced revenue, but also asking for a direct loan to cover payroll. Dodgers GM Ned Colletti has said that he still reports to Mccourt but also that he still has authority over all roster moves. we will keep you updated on this story as it progresses.

back to the game today. Ted Lilly will make his first wrigly start of the year, up against Ryan Dempster. the two were close frinds when they were playing together at wrigley. Lilly called Dempster his "brother from another mother" the two were close as Lilly helped Dempster through a tough time as his daughter has been ill with a rare illness. Dempster in his only start against the Dodgers last year pitched 7 shutout innings.

Andre Ethier is about as hot as any hitter in baseball right now. after going 1 for 2 yesterday, ethier now has a MLB best 19 game hitting streak. one more will tie Steve Garvey's 20 gamer back in april of 78 for the longest april streak in Dodgers history. the only other Dodger to have a 20 game hitting streak in april was normar garciaparra who hit in 22 in a row back in april of 2006

Vicente Padilla is back and with the club, and now available to pitch out of the bullpen. we could see the return of the infamous soap bubble today!

the Dodgers took four out of seven from the cubs last year.
ok game time at 10AM! on PT. more day baseball! GO BLUE!
