But let’s get this out of the way first: the free cookie gag is over. Jeff Kent approached me during batting practice and extended the olive branch. It was a classy move on his part. I appreciated it and thanked him for it. So from now on, I will eat my free cookies in silence (last reference, I promise). … Nomar apparently has been battling a left calf injury, which they are calling a strain, for several days. It wasn’t getting any better, so they shelved him and brought up Eric Hull to be their 12th pitcher, although the guess here is that Hull will go back on Friday to make room for Stults so he can pitch that night. … I haven’t fact-checked this, but Grady said the Dodgers are now 4 for their last 27 w/RISP. He moved Pierre back to the two hole tonight and pushed Martin back to sixth. Oh, and Hillenbrand will get most of the snaps at third while Nomar is out.
