Tonight’s very unusual lineup

James Loney is 1 for 14 with four strikeouts against Barry Zito, so he’s out of the lineup. That means Casey Blake is playing 1B for the first time since the Dodgers got him, Russell Martin is playing 3B for the first time in several weeks (I don’t have time to look up specifically when the last time was), and Danny Ardoin is catching for the second day in a row. Torre said Brad Penny should be able to throw about 90 pitches, but that a long inning or two and that number might be shaved a bit. … By the way, Manny is allegedly getting his hair cut when the team gets home. How short remains to be seen. He specifically asked Joe how short, and Joe didn’t specify. I’m told the team is now going to begin selling officially licensed bandanas with dreadlocks coming out of them.

Kemp, RF
Martin, 3B
Kent, 2B
Ramirez, LF
Blake, 1B
Jones, CF
Berroa, SS
Ardoin, C
Penny, P

    Sorry I mean who Penny replaced.

    Manny’s dreads are a marketing bonanza for the Dodgers. I also noticed that the Beimel bobblehead has the long hair. The VP of merchandising needs to send Torre an interoffice memo to tell him to back off the haircut edict. The PR department didn’t waste any time plastering Manny’s image all over TV. Manny with a Kent haircut just wouldn’t be the same.

    Quoting a previous post:
    >> … who Penny replaced. <<

    The AP Wire story about Penny’s being activated says that Falkenborg was designated for assignment.
