Diamondbacks @ Dodgers August 1, 2012: Fife Hard With a Vengeance

Matinees are the worst sometimes. This is one of those times. Shane Victorino makes his Dodger debut on a Wednesday afternoon when most of us can’t watch, and then I’ll be getting onto a plane home sometime around when the final pitch is thrown.

And who will Victorino be replacing? None other than Bobby Abreu, as I had surmised yesterday. I’ll have more on that decision another time, but as much as we all wanted Juan Uribe gone, Abreu has no value if he’s not hitting – which he wasn’t – and I’m pleasantly surprised that the team cut bait with a veteran like that rather than watching him struggle indefinitely when it’s clear that he’s cooked. Abreu should be remembered fondly because he came in and produced when the team had almost no other options, but I’m thrilled the roster is getting to a point where you can actually say goodbye to someone like him without a second thought.
