It’s Friday, which means Eric Gagne should be starting his throwing program today less than three weeks since he underwent surgery to remove a nerve in his right elbow. Fortunately for Eric, he will be bowling left-handed in the annual Eric Gagne Dodgers Dream Foundation Bowling Extravaganza. There are still a few spots left, so if you’re interested in hitting the lanes with Eric, his teammates and a few Hollywood celebs, take a look at the link.
As promised, there were several good off-day features on the Dodgers today.
Tony Jackson of the Daily News wrote about Bill Mueller’s position in the lineup.
Steve Henson of the LA Times writes about Dioner Navarro’s battle to improve at the big league level.
Bill Plunkett of the OC Register covered J.D. Drew’s hot start.
Allison Otto of the Riverside Press Enterprise writes about Maury Wills’ tutelage of Jason Repko.
And Jesse Sanchez, who is covering for MLB.com wrote about Ricky Ledee and Jose Cruz Jr. (Ken Gurnick didn’t make the trip to Houston, but I believe he’ll be covering again in San Diego).
