Another domino falls: Kuroda returns to L.A. for an MRI

This doesn’t sound like anything major, but he told Joe Torre today that he has shoulder discomfort and that he has had it for a while. Not sure why he is only now telling the manager, but that’s what happened. Derek Lowe will start in place of Kuroda tomorrow night, that will be on normal rest because of the off-day. Stults goes Thursday, Kershaw moves up to Friday. … The other bad news is that Torre acknowledged today that Rafael Furcal probably won’t be back before the All-Star break, which isn’t a huge development given that the week before the break was the earliest he could possibly return anyway. … There is SOME good news. Andruw Jones has been hitting at Dodger Stadium as part of his rehab, and from what I’m told, his swing looks better than it has all season. No longer dropping the elbow. Maybe the time away was just what he needed. No word yet on when he might start his minor-league rehab.

    I think I’ll order some MCDONALD’s on Saturday.

    I wish AZ was further ahead… Then Ned would be forced to either sh*t or get off the pot.
