Dodgers @ Giants Sept. 24, 2013: More Of This?

attparkI’m honestly trying to figure out what I care about less — the whole business about the Dodgers supposedly urinating in the Arizona pool, or the series in San Francisco that kicks off tonight.

I’ll say this about the pool thing and leave it at that. If someone did that in the pool, it’s over the line and not at all defensible, and I generally trust Tony Jackson and his reporting. On the other hand, for the moment, all we have is a second-hand report. As usual, Grant Brisbee has by far the best response to this, to the point that there’s really nothing else to say about it. You’re number one, Grant.

Somehow, there’s still regular season baseball to be played before the playoffs get moving, and I’m straining myself to act invested here. The good news is that the Dodgers roll out what is essentially the regular starting lineup tonight against Matt Cain. The bad news is that Andre Ethier is not a part of that lineup, since he’s still having pain when trying to run the bases.

The playoffs still don’t start for nine more days, so there’s time enough for Ethier to get himself feeling better. Still, you start to wonder what his status is for the first round if he’s unable to get into more than one or two games after missing so much time; if so, then as usual the “too many outfielders problem” will have fixed itself. Unfortunately, that would most likely mean that Jerry Hairston makes the roster, and that’s not good for anyone. Come back soon, Andre. We need you.
