Anyhoo, it may be that Nomar will heal quickly, but the Dodgers can't afford to be short a player on an already short bench, so he goes on the DL, while James Loney comes up from Las Vegas to show what he can do.
It really wasn't DeLo's best day at all. Earlier, the depositions in Lowe's divorce case were made public. Among the juicy tidbits, DeLo was on Ritalin while with the Sox, and is now on Adderall for his ADD (color me shocked again). There's much discussion about his drinking. There's also some thoughtless, potentially nasty comments he made that sort of lend credence to Milton Bradley's complaints about being the only African-American on the team.
Lowe (ERA=12.60) and Hudson (11.25) weren't the only starters that got roughed up badly yesterday. Barry Zito (47.25), Jon Lieber (21.60), Scott Kazmir (13.50), and Aaron Harang (10.80) weren't exactly mowing them down, either. The trend is continuing, as I just watched Tim Wakefield (17.18) get knocked out of tonight's Sox game.
