Tony Jackson asks in his article today:
With the Dodgers holding on for dear life in their quest for a playoff berth, how much longer can they afford to keep running the unreliable Tomko to the mound every fifth day?
My answer: Any thought that he can be an effective 5 to 6 inning starter had been vacant from my mind months ago. He is just not getting it done. All I know is I never want to see that guy on the mound again this year.

Also, I have to wonder what Grady is thinking when he said,
"He has good stuff. Sometimes, it amazes me that he gets hit."
What was that again? You've got to be kidding me.

What amazes me is that he still wears Dodger Blue. Unfortunately, with the injuries to Kuo, Schmidt and Wolf we have no choice.

YouTube: Baseball Video From 1898

Below is a short video clip featuring the very first, or at least oldest surviving, video/film of Baseball being played. It was put together by Thomas Edison in 1898 and is called The Ball Game. Two amateur teams from Newark, New Jersey face off against one another.
