Matt Leblanc-2-3 vs. Ted Lilly-8-13
The Dodgers have been playing much better. they've won 7 of their last 10 games, and are now only 6 games under .500, with a chance to sweep the lowly Padres today, and have a 5-1 home stand.
however I was a bit disgusted when I saw the lineup today. just when I though Mattingly had figured out how to build a good lineup, he puts the above craptastic lineup out. with the 0 for 30 hitless wonder Velez playing second base again. seriously, why is that Bum still on the roster? and why the hell is he in the lineup?
Matt Leblanc will take the mound for San Diego, hell counter Lefty Ted Lilly.
Matt Guerrier has gone on Paternity leave. congratulations to Guerrier on his new child. Josh Lindblom replaces him on the roster.
the Dodgers after the game will fly to pittsburgh to plat a rainout makeup game, then play four in Washington, three in Atlanta, three in San Francisco, before coming back home for the last home stand of the year. the Dodgers will call up someone from the minors to pitch tomorrows game in Pittsburgh, and Nathan Eovaldi will be moved to the bullpen for the rest of the year. the Dodgers are worried about blowing out his arm, so they want to keep his innings down.
todays game will be the last throwback Uni game of the year. game time is 1210 on Prime Ticket. sorry this is short guys, but I gotta Jet. GO BLUE
