Dodgers (1-1) at (4-1)

Scott Elbert started this morning's "B" game, against the White Sox, and gave up three runs (two earned) in his two innings of work, walking one and striking out three. Brian Giles had a pair of singles, and was thrown out in the first inning trying to score from second on a single (thanks to Tony Jackson of ESPN L.A. for the early play-by-play)
Henry Schulman of the San Francisco Chronicle reports that Nate Schierholtz says his knee feels better, but he's still out of the lineup. Andrew Baggarly of the San Jose Mercury News reports Aubrey Huff is out of the lineup with an illness.
With all the hullabaloo over Ronald Belisario being late to camp -- apparently jokesters in the clubhouse put up "wanted" posters with his picture in the clubhouse, per Jackson -- Cory Wade seemed primed to take advantage should an extra bullpen spot open up. But, per Dylan Hernandez of the L.A. Times, Wade had a cortisone shot in his shoulder, and is out for two weeks. Joe Torre added that the MRI showed no structural problems, and it is a similar injury to the one he suffered last spring. Tough luck, Cory.
Here are the lineups for today's game, Day 1 of the A.J. Ellis Era:
I suppose it's possible to get tired of anything, but I'm not sure how you can get tired of watching a game from up in the press box.
No TV today (the next two games are on Prime Ticket), but you can listen online here.
