Bob filling in here.
I’ve already forgotten to include a Clayton Kershaw start nickname once already, so I’ll do it again. Jon can add them retrospectively.
Pittsburgh starter Brandon Cumpton, making his Major League debut, is just eight months younger than Clayton Kershaw.
J.P. Howell, who pitched two innings last night, dropped the appeal of his 2-game suspension and will spend the rest of the series hanging out at some of Pittsburgh’s finer restaurants and taverns. Yasiel Puig ends up in the 2 spot in the lineup today behind leadoff man Skip Schumaker. Andre Ethier goes from 6 to 5. MEllis is 6 and AEllis is 8. Uribear has the third base job today.
I’m proposing a new theme song for the 2013 Dodgers.
