LaRoche Promoted

From "Dodgers call up LaRoche from Vegas" by Ken Gurnick at

ATLANTA -- Looking desperately for help at third base, the Dodgers announced on Sunday the promotion of Andy LaRoche from Triple-A Las Vegas and made room for him by placing Marlon Anderson on the 15-day disabled list with a sore elbow.

LaRoche wasn't exactly tearing up the Pacific Coast League with a .235 average and three home runs. But the Dodgers have been starting Wilson Betemit for most of this season and he is hitting .140 with only one home run, which he hit Saturday night as a pinch-hitter.

Who does James Loney have to sleep with to make it back to the majors?

James Loney, imprisoned, and now you're talking about having him sleep with somebody or other to get out of it. Sounds creepy.
