After suffering a line drive shot to his heel and taking some time off for his foot to heal properly, it was great to see the lineup this morning and see Andre’s name in as DH for today’s game against the Padres. Not only was he in the lineup, he had a triple today, which obviously gave me confidence that his recovery efforts are going very well. Andre went 1 for 4 today with a run scored. The Dodgers ended up defeating the Padres 5-4. Chad Billingsly pitched two innings with no hits…..just fabulous,and Blake DeWitt hit a two run shot, as well as Mitch Jones hitting his 3rd homerun of this Spring Training season.
And I guess we are close to signing Manny, so I am sure we are in for a few days of total media craziness around Dodger Stadium and at Camelback Ranch. However, nothing is done until Manny signs on the dotted line. I am hoping that day comes tomorrow.
