|Perhaps a reassessment of our initial strategy is in order.|
Nathan Eovaldi (0-2, 1.82 ERA) vs. Tommy Milone (6-5, 4.48 ERA)
The Dodgers face off against yet another middle-of-the-road A's pitcher (who may or may not have a hot wife) who fares much better at home than on the road. Sending Eovaldi to the mound portends a low scoring game again tonight, so let's hope that a second try at this scenario will yield better results.
Meanwhile, the expectation is that the Dodgers new ownership will be big spenders at the trade deadline. With a list of potential targets that includes Carlos Lee, Carlos Quentin, Kevin Youkilis, and Justin Morneau, I hope that we don't end up swapping the remainder of our already-depleted minor league talent for a veritable who's-who of the walking wounded.
To all the Dodgers, whether you be in the batter's box or in the front office: let's show a little discretion out there, ok?
