A new thread

Just starting a new thread for everyone to use…had I been able to post, I probably would’ve pointed out the Colletti Q&A by Diamond Leung and the Yahoo Sports story on Kim Ng by Tim Brown…looks like you guys are on top of it.

Great comeback win yesterday…I hope some of you will be dressed in blue in the Bay Area tonight…a big game and a chance to take over the division lead!

 

Long weekend…

It’s been a busy day, so I hadn’t had the chance to post until now. With the long weekend, there’s a chance I won’t get to post very regularly but will do my best to start new threads.

I hope everyone has a fun and safe holiday weekend!

Leading off…

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

Kemp, CF

Ethier, RF

Martin, C

Kent, 2B

Loney, 1B

DeWitt, 3B

Young, LF

Maza, SS

Kuroda, P

 

Texas kids come home…

Kershaw on the bump tonight in Houston, TX, his home state. I’m sure he’d love to get his first win out of the way so we’ll all stop asking about it.

Loney is also back in the town where he grew up. Perfect timing for the launch of James Loney, Before the Bigs, which airs tomorrow night after the game on FSN Prime Ticket.

As for the lineup, well, you knew it would get interesting eventually with Pierre out due to the knee injury. Sitting atop it is none other than…

Kemp, CF

Young, LF

Martin, C

Kent, 2B

Loney, 1B

LaRoche, 3B

Ethier, RF

Maza, SS

Kershaw, P
