Lilly Placed on DL


Amid all of the speculation it has now been confirmed that Ted Lilly is hurt with a bum shoulder.  From the Dodgers press release:

The Los Angeles Dodgers today placed left-handed pitcher Ted Lilly on the 15-day disabled list (retroactive to May 24) with left shoulder inflammation and recalled left-handed pitcher Michael Antonini from Triple-A Albuquerque. 
Michael Antonini makes another return to the Dodgers.  He came up for 2 days in late April (24-25), but didn't get into a game.  So, he has yet to make an official Major League appearance. 


Hopefully, Lilly's shoulder problems doesn't grow to something larger.  He's been very good this year, and has confidently taken over the #2 pitcher spot.  Having him go down leaves a giant hole in our rotation.  As has been reported elsewhere, Nate Eovaldi will be taking over Lilly's starts for the time being.

Check Out Pics of Kemp's Big Day in AAA

I think it's fair to say that Matt Kemp is ready to tear up the National League again.  He went 2 for 3 yesterday with a home run, two runs scored and three RBI's.  Not too shabby, eh? 

Well, the powers of cyberspace wins again as the local blogger, Evan of New Mexico Fan, forwarded along some pics of Kemp that were taken yesterday. Evan mentioned that Matt ran the bases well, so his hammy appears to have healed nicely.  Check Kemp out in all of his camouflaged glory below.

Vintage Postcard: They Can't Strike Him Out!


Check out this great vintage postcard from my collection. 

Happy Memorial Day!

I think it's fair to say this postcard is very timely.  It features a slugging President (Abe Lincoln?) at the ballpark while donning a Team USA jersey.
