Welcome to the first weekend of interleague pla....Wait, what the what is wrong with the MLB schedule? Never mind. Do over.
Dodgers return from a long, arduous road trip to face the old enemy Shards (22-16). This three-game home stand represents a real test of strength and spirit for a Dodgers team that has beaten up on crummier teams but has been somewhat tested by contending teams. This is all the more difficult with Kemp, et al out of the lineup. Here's hoping that old fossil we dug up Bobby Abreu keeps up his success with the bat and doesn't fall victim to the virulent hamstring flu currently decimating our squad.
Re-reading that first paragraph makes it sound like we're struggling this year. But wait! We're the best team in baseball at 25-13. Pull your socks up, lads and lasses, because we can get this done against the dread Shards. Let's splinter them into a million pieces and send them home crying for their moms.
ps- Don't forget to vote A.J. Ellis to this year's All Star Game squad!
