  • As you probably know, the Dodgers will be opening the Scott Avenue entrance to Dodger Stadium this seasons. The Eastsider LA blog addresses residents concerns, "Echo Park residents cry “foul” over Dodger traffic management plans".
“The cars are faster during regular games,” a Scott Avenue resident said during the meeting. “They are in a race to get” into the stadium.
Greinke ran into a spot of bother in the first inning, allowing two hits, but he kept the Diamonbacks off the scoreboard. He hit 90 MPH on the radar gun on the only pitch I was able to get velocity on. The second inning was a different story, as he got knocked around for four hits and three runs, including a solo home run allowed to former uber prospect Andy Marte.
"Everybody had to get ready faster for Australia," he said. "I have to get ready for the American games. I've just got to get ready as fast as I can without a setback."
Stan Conte, the Dodgers vice president of medical services who was on hand to monitor Kemp as he played in an intrasquad game on Wednesday. "We're not really sure how this will even work. We're really taking this only a day at a time and a week at a time. We'll see where we are at the end of this week, and by the time we go to Australia we'll have a plan."
Kemp added:
"I feel a little weird still being out there," Kemp said. "I'm still trying to get my legs under me. My legs feel a little heavy and tired at times. That comes with getting back in shape as far as being on the field. You can lift as many weights as you want, but nothing compares with game speed out there on the baseball field.
