    Some tidbits from Gammons

    • Nomar Garciaparra insists he will be physically ready to open the regular season, but even if he is not, Dodgers GM Ned Colletti is not going to rush into a trade for a third baseman.

    "We're not going to make a long-term move because we believe [Andy] LaRoche and [Blake] DeWitt are going to be here for a long time at that position," says Colletti.

    L.A. is not going to take on Brandon Inge's three-year, $19.1 million contract, and as good a player and teammate as Joe Crede may be, scouts in Arizona seem concerned about his back.

    • Andre Ethier has had what appears to be a breakout spring, but with Juan Pierre's contract untradeable, the Dodgers will open the season with Ethier, Matt Kemp, Pierre and Andruw Jones in the outfield mix and let manager Joe Torre deal with one daily unhappy camper. As for Clayton Kershaw, it sure sounds as if the Dodgers believe he will be a factor this season; the issue will be limiting his innings early in the season so that he is fresh come August, which means 150-160 innings for the whole season.

    Olney speculates that we are looking at Mark Lorreta from Houston.

    • In this Brian McTaggart notebook, there is word that the Dodgers are looking at Mark Loretta. He would be a nice fill-in for a couple of months while the Dodgers wait for Andy LaRoche to recover from his injury.
    Here's what the notebook says.

    Dodgers covet Loretta
    The Los Angeles Dodgers reportedly are interested in trading for Mark Loretta to fill in for third baseman Nomar Garciaparra, who won't be ready for opening day.

    Loretta started at third base Friday for the Astros.

    Astros general manager Ed Wade has a policy of not discussing potential trades, but he expects Loretta to be with the Astros on opening day and possibly start in place of injured second baseman Kaz Matsui.

    It sounds like Kent could miss opening day.

    160 innings refers to the total amount innings he'll throw at all levels. Kinda doubt he'll see 160 innings at the major league level this season.

    Ah, I totally misread that. So they're saying they want to limit his innings in the minors so that he's fresh as a last-season call-up. Got it.

    Yea, seems like the Dodgers have plan for him. It's up to Kershaw to dominate AA.

    Is anybody worried about Chad Billingsley? He got shelled again today and if I'm not mistaken he's gotten shelled in every game he's pitched. I know it's the spring but it's not exactly like he's a proven vet. He should be killing it.

    And as far as Mark Loretta goes, I think I'd rather stick with DeWitt until Nomar or LaRoche. It's not as if he's played himself off the team.

    I'm not worried. I watch every Dodgers game, read everything I can and attend about 4-7 games a month. But I could care less what happens in ST games. As long as no one's hurt, I don't really care who hits what, who gives up how many runs or what the Dodgers' ST record is.

    It's just never translated to how the Dodgers will do or how a specific Dodger will do consistently enough for me to treat it with any merit.


    Anyway, Looks like the two guys w/o options are in as far as Torre's concerned.

    The Official Site of The Los Angeles Dodgers: News: Kuo, Young look like roster locks

    TUCSON, Ariz. -- Hong-Chih Kuo, who has had an impressive Spring Training, and Delwyn Young, who hasn't, are expected to be on the Opening Day roster, manager Joe Torre said Sunday.
    So I guess that means Clayton's back down as of tomorrow, possibly. That's good news. I can't wait to see him back up for good... possibly in August to replace Kuo!
