With the team in Chicago for the four-game set, wanted to make sure those of you looking to watch it on TV aren’t lost. There’s been a slight change with the channel on Time Warner Cable, so if you used to watch it on Channel 413, please note that this week, it’ll be on Channel 463 and then starting June 6, it’ll be on Channel 464. Sorry for an inconvenience. If you didn’t watch in HD, you’re not affected at all.
As for the game out there, here’s the lineup:
And here’s Joe Torre’s pregame chat:
The change in the lineup is really due to the fact that Casey is in the middle. We stacked left/righty from there.
We’ll have to pay attention to Furcal. I’ll probably give him tomorrow off and then he’ll play Saturday and Sunday.
Kuroda felt good and he threw well. His movement just wasn’t what he wanted. We’ll make a decision next after he throws his bullpen tomorrow. He didn’t have an arm issue so I’m not sure he needs another start down there.
Xaxier Paul left the hospital yesterday.
My guess is Brox won’t be available tonight. We’d use Troncoso.
Kuo had a sim game that wasn’t good. He was wild. But he had a bullpen that was better.
