    I’ll bet if this sale had happened a year ago Kuroda would still be a Dodger.

    I’m missing Kuroda already. 

    Chris Capuano looks like he will be good for no more than 6 innings.  Not a complaint, exactly, just an observation.  When Lilly returns, I could envision a scenario in which Capuano and Harang share the fourth starter role, coming in to relieve one another.  

    Failing that, I might slot one of them in between Kershaw and Billingsley so the bullpen doesn’t have back-to-back long nights.
