Tonight’s lineup

There was a lot of talk about Andruw Jones before the game, but there was nothing really new. He feels better today. That’s about it. One of you asked about the length of Gary Bennett’s recovery, well, the best answer is that no one knows. Stan Conte said the problem with plantar fasciitis, which can be very painful, is that it tends to get worse with activity, so they have to wait until it is completely gone before Bennett really starts rehabbing hard. Loaiza will probably make another rehab start before he comes back. Nomar is undergoing tests as we speak. And Furcal is pushing for a Wednesday return, but club officials are pushing back, saying the safe thing to do would be to wait until Friday.

Here’s the lineup

LF Pierre
RF Ethier
C Martin
2B Kent
1B Loney
CF Kemp
3B DeWitt
SS Hu
RH Billingsley

    Would not shock me if Bennett winds up on the 60-Day DL to make room for Schmidt’s return eventually. This injury seems odd to me (i.e. – pre-existing condition maybe?)

    Let me see if I get this…..

    In the off season the Dodgers decide to sign a second rate backup catcher who admitted steroid use, has a “throwing” problem he is seeing a sports psycologist for , and has foot problems.

    Nice.

    Lemme guess, Stan Conte signed off on this guy too?

    Unbelievable.

    My preference would be for the Dodgers to eat Loaiza’s contract, assuming a trade isn’t possible. If he does come back, which pitcher is likely to get sent down? I would guess Brazoban.
