Kemp stays in the leadoff spot in Houston…good to see the team regroup last night after giving up the lead and pull out the victory. Before tonight’s game, the Dodgers optioned Clayton Kershaw to make room for Hiroki Kuroda, who gets the start. I’m not with the team, so I can’t explain the reasoning but I’m sure Joe Torre will do so shortly…obviously someone had to go for Kuroda to be activated and it makes sense if we have six starters for the most recent one to get a little respite heading into the All-Star Break. At least that’s my sense at this point.
Hope to see some of you tonight at the Hollywood Bowl show saluting the Dodgers. Vin Scully, Tommy Lasorda and Nancy Bea Hefley will all be a part of it this evening. So will fireworks all three nights (as well as July 12 at Dodger Stadium).
After the game tonight, James Loney Before the Bigs will premiere on FSN Prime Ticket so keep the TV tuned in.
And finally, I’m not sure what the comment means about numbering the blogs like DodgerThoughts does. I tried to look and see what that was referring to but do not see what you want us to do.
UPDATE: The lineup…oops
