Be Sure to Enjoy Hiroki Kuroda While You Can

Hiroki Kuroda starts tonight for the Dodgers against Ian Kennedy in Arizona, as Los Angeles attempts to extend their season-high winning streak to six. I think it’s less than a 50/50 shot Kuroda actually gets traded before the deadline, particularly if the Dodgers keep up their recent winning streak, but if he does we could be looking at one of his final two or three starts in blue. That’s kind of a sad thought, no?

Unrelated and far, far less poignant: Juan Rivera‘s fine debut last night gives him the highest OPS in Dodger history, with a minimum 4 PA. (What small sample size?)

Also! Another installment of talking Dodger baseball with Jon Weisman of Dodger Thoughts, complete with “just played a softball doubleheader hair” from me.
