Dodgers @ Rockies August 28, 2012: Capuano vs Chatwood

In an effort to shake things up, Don Mattingly has swapped Mark Ellis & Shane Victorino at the top of the order for tonight. I don’t have a problem with him doing that, but is there really anyone among us who wouldn’t rather see A.J. Ellis & Luis Cruz there right now? And yes, I realize how insane those words sound. I suppose it’s irrelevant for tonight anyway, since Cruz takes a seat in place of Adam Kennedy.

Chris Capuano isn’t quite as homer-prone as Joe Blanton – we get that particular brand of hell tomorrow – but it’s still a concern. Fortunately for him, Carlos Gonzalez gets the night off, which makes the rest of that lineup… well, you remember what the Dodgers looked like in June, right?

 @Gilbert_Vengeance little to none if thats all it is. Looked like they were doing the lock drawer test on the field, but since they let him keep playing at least we can be somewhat confident its not the ACL

 @Gilbert_Vengeance IMO, if he didnt get a haircut when they were in Miami, he doesn't plan on cutting it yet
