Before I Leave for the Stadium

Today on Giving Tuesday, LAist needs your support.
Today, your donation to LAist will be matched dollar for dollar. Your tax-deductible that gift powers our reporters and keeps us independent will be felt twice as strong today, so don't delay!

I don't usually do a pre-write for a game, but since I won't be writing about the game tonight I just needed to put in my two cents.

Nomar is sent to the DL with a strained left calf which means today is the start of the Shea Hillenbrand era. Excuse me if my optimism has died like my faith in the Democrats.

To further muddle things, Grady inexplicably has put Juan Pierre back in the two spot while dropping Russell Martin to the six spot.
