Blake DeWitt Worming His Way Into Our Hearts, Starting Lineup

From Dodgers.com, yesterday:

But Torre said that when Garciaparra is healthy, he would reclaim the starting third-base job from rookie Blake DeWitt.

From the LA Times, today:

Dodgers Manager Joe Torre said DeWitt wouldn't necessarily be demoted when Nomar Garciaparra, who has a strained left calf, is ready to come off the disabled list.

Congrats, Blake, on your first major league home run! And you gotta love the five-second freeze-out his teammates gave him before mobbing him. Looks like the kids are improving the Dodgers' chemistry off the field as well.
