Kent back in the lineup

We don’t have it yet, but we know he’s in it because Joe told us. Still no update on Furcal. And Schmidt is going to throw his fourth rehab for Single-A Inland Empire on Saturday, which is significant because it comes after the standard four days’ rest, the first time he has made back-to-back starts on regular rest as opposed to standard rest. The time constraints of his rehab (30 days) are such that he probably only has two more starts, and one club official said Schmidt could jump all the way to 75 pitches this time even though he has yet to throw more than 45. Torre said as long as Schmidt gets up to 85 before he returns, he could throw 100 when he does return. Still anybody’s guess as to how they’re going to fit him into the rotation when the time comes.

    the last sentence of the Torre comment made me flashback to Fernando after his arm went bad and he was trying to put people away with an 88 mph fastball…I don’t think it’s going to be pretty if Schmidt comes back like that.

    Brad Penny….mentally fragile. One call goes against him and he self-destructs. I think he should go back trying to strike everyone out. Pitching to contact ain’t working for him anymore.

    Whoooooooooa another one of these so-called Home Runs. I could get used to this sorta thing. But don’t worry, I won’t.

    Hold your story Tony… Dodgers actually hit a ball over the fence in fair territory… I think they call that a Home Run, but I’m not sure because it’s been a while since I’ve seen someone in a Dodger uniform hit one… And apparently it was Jeff “Quazi Modo” Kent…
