Yeah, so about those spring training stats.... Chad Billingsley was magnificent, even if he was facing the lowly Padres (if a team can be called lowly after two games, it's the Padres). TT went 8 1/3, allowing only three hits and striking out 11 (!). Andre Ethier started his campaign for a long-term contract, lighting up the lefty Cory Luebke for a double, a triple and four (!) RBIs. Matt Kemp chipped in with two hits, a ribbie and stolen base #1, and Juan Rivera had the other RBI.
The only downsides? Dee Gordon struck out two more times and Juan Uribe was Juan Uribe. (In other words, he went 0 for 4.)
