Dodgers are taking early BP, but where’s Juan Pierre?

Oh, wait, there he is. I didn’t see him at first, as he is wearing a camouflage T-shirt. Andruw Jones and Nomar Garciaparra are taking part in the early BP session, but it doesn’t look like Rafael Furcal is out there. … Cloudy, overcast and cool down here, although I had nice lunch on the patio at Island Prime, a place Dodgers PR staffer Mark Rogoff recommended, and it was well worth the trip. The drive down was smooth and uneventful. Came a different way because I had to go to Pasadena this morning to take care of a minor matter with my car, so I took the 210 to the 57 and caught the 5 just south of Angel Stadium. I hadn’t driven that stretch of the 57 in years and had forgotten how scenic it was. … Speaking of Rogoff, he just sent along this stat: Chad Billingsley’s 2.96 road ERA since his big league debut on June 15, 2006 ranks fourth in the Majors in that time behind only John Lackey (2.87), Josh Beckett (2.95), and Cla Meredith (2.95)
