Quote of the day
"I'll tell you what, these young kids that we have pitching here, they're getting an opportunity of a lifetime and none of them want to step up." -- Cubs manager Lou Piniella, after a 9-5 loss to San Diego

Daily blurb
Apparently, removing Jonathan Broxton from the closer role wasn’t the cure-all for the Dodgers’ late-game woes. Or, at least, inserting Hong-Chih Kuo into that role wasn’t the answer. Kuo was inserted into a 3-1 Dodger lead in the top of the 8th with plans to get a 2-inning save. He lasted only 1-1/3, taking the loss – although all three runs scored after Octavio Dotel came in with the bases loaded and waved them all home with a walk and a single, facing just two batters. Looks like the Dodger bullpen is a good place for fantasy managers to avoid for the time being. Unfortunately, Joe Torre doesn’t have that flexibility.

Based on today’s quote, sounds like Torre and Piniella have a lot in common right now.
