Rockies vs Dodgers preview

Purple Row

Joe Torre dropped a bomb on the media when he announced that last years playoff hero, Kuroda would miss the first round of the playoffs. Then he announced that Vicente Padilla would start on Sunday instead of Chad Billingsley. Who follows Wolf/Kershaw is unclear and Joe said it would depend on the opposition. Consider Sunday and tryout.

So this leaves tonights starter as our number one game starter for the playoffs. Very few people figured when Randy Wolf signed last spring that he would be our starting pitcher in the playoffs and that it would not be because of injuries but because of performance. Randy Wolf has given the Dodgers more then even the most optimistic Wolf supporter could have imagined.

Blake is back and batting sixth and this lineup looks to me like the playoff lineup. Hopefully Blake can bring some bang back into the lineup. With a day off and Chavez Ravine rekindling their spirits I expect the Dodgers to make the final two games of this series moot.
