Lilly up, burnt Coffey on the back burner

With Ted Lilly back from the DL and needing to make a corresponding roster move, word on the street has “pitcher” Todd Coffey going on the DL with a knee injury. Sure would hate to see us lose a quality vet like Coffey, but fortunately Ned knows just how to keep them around… In the meantime, I guess we’ll just muddle through with Josh Lindblom. Lilly will be making his 2012 debut after getting shelled in his only rehab start for Rancho Cucamonga.

Also making his 2012 and Major League debut will be one of the Padres top prospects, starting pitcher Joe Wieland, whom they acquired at the 2011 trade deadline from Texas.

At 7-1, the Dodgers are off to their best start since 1981 when they opened the season 9-1 on their way to a world championship.

      It’s great to have speed in the 1-2-3 spots, but it won’t due us much good if Dee and Tony can’t get on base.

  2. oldbrooklynfan says:

    The Coffey move is just another way to get Lilly back in. I think it was the best move that could’ve been made.

  3. crash24now says:

    It’s nice to be 7-1. However, I wouldn’t make too much of our record, given that it comes thanks to playing the likes of San Diego and Pittsburgh.

    Looks like Gnats’ closer Brain Wilson could be headed for Tommy John surgery. As much as I despise the Gnats, I feel bad for the player and the person.

    Thought I’d give you what you’ve all been waiting for – a beaver shot.

      Is that your tail between your feet, or are you just glad to see Tinkerbell? 🙂

      BTW, nice post Enchanted.

  6. enchantedbeaver says:

    Hooray Kemp. Hooray Dre.

    No one was giving them any love so I thought I’d help out.

  7. trublu4ever says:

    Awesome job Matty & Dre! Lilly will need all the help we can give him. Love your photo, Enchanted!

  8. vl4eccjr says:

    Good evening all!
    Nice of the gang to spot Lilly a four run lead. . .

  9. trublu4ever says:

    Matty is on FIRE!

  10. JhallWally says:

    Woo-Hoo MattVP!!!!!

  11. vl4eccjr says:

    Matt is a BEAST en fuego!

  12. enchantedbeaver says:

    Lilly’s doing a heck of a lot better than I thought he would.

  13. enchantedbeaver says:

    Give the Wieland kid credit. He’s settled down after being shelled.

  14. trublu4ever says:

    Vin is back tomorrow…yay…Jackie Robinson day too!

  15. JhallWally says:

    Damn, Lilly is getting it done. Better get fat on these Puds. We start playing some good teams next week. Braves and Brewers I think… Then we’ll see what we’re made of…

  16. trublu4ever says:

    Awesome job by Ted….getting us through the 7th inning and, not making us use the bp.

  17. enchantedbeaver says:

    Not only is Lilly getting it done, he’s not throwing many pitches doing it.

  18. trublu4ever says:

    Beast Mode – On!

  19. trublu4ever says:

    Oh, no…it’s McDooDoo time!

  20. vl4eccjr says:

    Ruh roh!
    It’s McDoo-doo!

  21. JhallWally says:

    A big “Outstanding” for Lilly!!!

  22. DodgerZona says:

    Hello….Went and seen the Thunderbirds today at Davis Monthan afb….What an awesome show they put on….Windy as heck here today….Nice catch Kemp….Go Dodgers

  23. DodgerZona says:

    Nice job Lilly

  24. vl4eccjr says:

    Loweenio’s average up to a buck & a quarter now. . .

  25. trublu4ever says:

    And, for the 9th…we get Wright.

  26. enchantedbeaver says:

    We have got to have the weakest bench ever.

    And that’s saying something considering what we’ve had the last couple years.

    • trublu4ever says:

      No power, for sure but, good defense, I suppose and, maybe the ability to move other players along fo the big bats.

  27. trublu4ever says:


  28. vl4eccjr says:

    Another ‘W!’
    Here’s hoping they break out the brooms tomorrow!

  29. DodgerZona says:

    Nice win Dodgers…Keep it going

  30. enchantedbeaver says:

    Great job by Lilly (damn it hurts to say that.) Now the bully’s good and rested and with Kersh on the hill tomorrow there’s a better than good chance for a sweep.

  31. oldbrooklynfan says:

    Lilly had his game going tonight, what a gem. How about that Kemp.
    Nice HR by Ethier and a good job of relief from MacDougal & Wright.
    8 out of the first 9 great start. Let’s get another one tomorrow.

  32. nedisajerk says:

    Look like I miss a good game but why the earlier start? I had a feeling Coffey was going to go on the DL.

  33. nedisajerk says:

    Gosh damn Pirates defense suck lol

  34. nedisajerk says:

    Wow people are dumb look at this. These guys must be young if he think Guerra can pitch 4 games in a rows and another person must not have seen Jamey Wright pitch in his career.

  35. nellyjune says:

    I was driving home from Michael’s game and trying to find anything other than the gnats game on the radio, and I ended up listening to the San Diego’s feed of the game. It was the strangest thing considering where we were is like 7/8 hours from the San Diego area. However, it was nice listening to our game versus the gnats/Pirates game. As much as I loved hearing our boys get their home runs, I felt bad for the Padres’ new pitcher. I was glad he settled after that first and second inning shelling, but I was equally happy that Lilly did such a great job.

  36. nedisajerk says:

    That was a tough lost by the Coyotes and gave up a goal with 5.5 second left in the 3rd and lost it in OT.

    • nellyjune says:

      I’m not feeling sorry for the Coyotes at all!! GO LA KINGS!!! That said, if they (or the Sharks) are the only team left from the west coast, then I will gladly cheer them on. Until then, it’s Kings all the way!!

  37. trublu4ever says:

    Happy Jackie Robinson Day! I see Uribum is back in the lineup….however, on a good note, we have Matt, Dre & Kersh!
