Manny is going to be in the lineup for L.A. tonight. To clear a roster spot for him the Dodgers have designated Juan Castro for assignment.

Gibbons cleanup? Really? Seems odd, but okay.

I'm kinda disappointed to see Gomes in there again so soon. With the way he's struggled, he could use a few days off to clear his head (which I'm convinced is screwed up due to the #100 chase). Edmonds (or better...Nix or Heisey) would've been a better choice IMO.

I figured it was too good to be true last night.

If we hold him to fewer than 4 hits and 4 ribbies...it will be a moral victory.

Since HB went two posts for the lineups, I think you get the win anyway.

Sweet. I'll step up and claim my prize. I'm sure it will be a big old E-7 in the 5th inning of a Manny line drive that scores two.

Well, I wasn't being critical of it, I was expressing surprise over him being in there facing a righty in the midst of his struggles.

But I guess that's not okay to do.

For what it's worth, a Sun Decker kindly PM'd me that Gomes is 4 for 4 lifetime against Billingsley, which is cool information, and addresses my surprise.

But I guess snarky putdowns of attempts to discuss are more the norm.

Carry on.

You're really getting carried away on this. It was commentary on the fact Gomes was inevitably going to have criticism about his presence in the lineup.

Show me anywhere.... anywhere if you please... where I had a problem with you posting anything. Can you do that for me? Because I thought it was pretty apparent it was a joke and should have been taken as such.

Dude, it was a joke. You do have a sense of humor, yes?

Lighten up. No harm meant by it. Clearly there's a feeling that Gomes shouldn't be in the lineup much, if any. And I was playing around on that sentiment wondering how long it would take to be mentioned. That was all there is to it.

Great play but the only reason it was an out was Billingsly barely even ran.

Gomes is honestly the worst player on the 25 man roster right now.

It's a cyclical season...Nix and Cairo have both held that title this year at some point. Masset as well.

But Bray might own that title at this time, with Gomes a close second. I'd rather see Gomes as a PH vs a left than Bray in any situation.

Sure, getting to it was a feat in itself. But it's funny...if you watch the replay, you'll see him double clutch. He had really no thought of throwing until he saw Billingsley jogging.

Not tonight, although this team is special. This is as close to an L as you can possibly get after 5. Time to start a new winning streak tomorrow. I said last night the pitching matchups are tough for the final five games of the trip. Hoping they can manage to scrape out 2 more wins on the Coast.
