Could be a slow start for the Blue though.
MLB has them and the DBacks going to Australia to play games to open the season.
I'm not too happy about this crap, that's a long way to go to play two games that count March 22nd, return then restart the season March 30th. That is some BS.
SAN DIEGO -- The Los Angeles Dodgers are hinting that their season-opening trip to Australia might have some connection to the injuries to star pitchers Clayton Kershaw and Brian Wilson.
They are not saying that is a fact. But they are not ruling out the possibility.
Pitching coach Rick Honeycutt said Wednesday that the team's shortened spring training and a long string of days with no games before and after the trip could have exposed pitchers to injuries.
Wilson said the nerve problem in his surgically-rebuilt right elbow could very well be a result of having a fragmented throwing program in March. He said he did not have enough time to get ready.
Kershaw, the winner of the past two National League Cy Young Awards, is sidelined for at least the next three weeks due to inflammation in his upper back.
Kershaw's back problems arose after making the Opening Day start March 22 in Australia. Kershaw made just four spring training starts and worked only 14 2/3 innings before the season opener.
fug you MLB.
Hopefully Stan Kasten will tell the next Commissioner that wants to do some stupid shyt like Australia to stick it up his ass.
