Homestand kicks off…

Hiroki Kuroda still has slight interrmittent headaches so he won’t start Thursday. Joe Torre still isnt’ sure who will be throwing for us that day and we don’t know if he’ll go on the DL. According to Joe, Kuroda had a big smile on his face today and Elbert is one option. He hopes to know by the end of the game today who will start on Thursday.

Obviously he needs to be 100 percent before he goes back out there. He will be reevaluated by a doctor tomorrow but the medical department sent him home to ‘rest the brain.’ All the things out here overstimulate the brain, according to Stan. Tomorrow he might stay out here longer and we can see how he responds to the stimulus.

Aumus is in the lineup because he has more experience catching a knuckleballer.

Here’s the lineup:

Furcal, SS

Hudson, 2B

Ethier, RF

Manny, LF

Blake, 3B

Kemp, CF (live chat with him tomorrow at 2 p.m. PT)

Loney, 1B

Ausmus, C

Haeger, P
