That rings a bell. Seems like we had some in-game and post-game fury from you on that subject last season. 03-lmfao

yeah, maybe once or twice....a game...all September and october. Still will never understand how Bochy could let him pitch to Zobrist. It seems so obviously stupid. That said, we all know platoon splits are fickle and Romo has had seasons where he's done reasonably well vs LHH. I believe last season is more indicative of his true skill in terms of vs LHH, but that's just a guess

Kazmir removed 1 pitch into the 2nd inning. Let the annual worrying about Kazmir, commence (and then he'll be fine)

There will be no worrying from me. Dodgers need to cull some of their starters and I'd be fine with Kazmir going now (although I don't wish him injury). I don't think even the Dodgers have the stones to cut an $11MM pitcher, and I'm afraid that if he's in the top 7 or so coming out of camp he'll end up in the rotation.

I'd guess Urias starts the season in extended Spring Training (he's not ready for 200 innings; only threw 120 last year, so a 6th starter is definitely needed, but I'd be ok with Kershaw, Hill, Maeda, McCarthy, Wood to begin the year. Brock Stewart and Ross Stripling both pitched in the majors last year and should be improved so are also in the mix. Not gonna count on Ryu but he is pitching without discomfort again. Has to get his velocity up to be considered viable; if he does the logjam is even worse. (Admittedly, it's a great problem to have.)

In other Dodgers news, the bat flip is back...




Hoping he can carry that into the season; not holding my breath.

Yeah, Dodgers have plenty of depth in the rotation, so it's hardly a concern.

Dodgers nagging (or worse) injury list:
Kershaw (says he's healthy but it was a herniated disk and he didn't have surgery)
Kazmir (hip)
Ryu (shoulder; will make his debut this Saturday; we'll see)
Ethier (back)
Seager (fouled a ball off his shin, recovered, then hurt his back first game back)
Gonzalez (tennis elbow)

How's everybody else doing?

Red Sox are down David Price right now, but he should return hopefully next week.

Most of the Red Sox starters have only started one or two games and thrown 2 innings. Position players are in good shape right now. Sandoval has been some what impressive this spring training.

from the bares watching files.....

Strasburg got lit up today by the Cardinals. 6 runs in 2 innings so far. 2nd spring start- 2 scoreless in the other one. Hopefully nothing to it- but like we saw last year with Matt Harvey with the Mets- he struggled in spring training and just never recovered really the entire year before getting shut down.

In the good news/bad news department: Ryu pitched decently, with no discomfort during or after, and ok velocity. But Stewart is getting shut down for shoulder soreness.

Log jam clearing up via attrition.
