I wanted to write something about last nights loss, but my comment in the game threat pretty much sums up my feelings in a far more succinct way.

Prior to the game, Ramon Martinez went on the DL with a back injury. A bit suspicious, since one would think he would actually have to play to hurt himself. Taking his place on the roster is Matt Kemp. It's great to see Kemp up, but he's sadly not playing tonight. It also pretty much takes away any reason for Martinez to be on the roster. Supposedly he was the backup shortstop if Furcal went down, but we didn't call anyone up to take his place. I have to believe that he's not long for this team if he doesn't play as it is, and we didn't bother calling up anyone to replace him.
