Daily Friar 4.14.12

I was in LA last night. Not for the game, but for a concert. I was however following the game on my phone and I was impressed that I saw a number higher than 2 next to the Padres. I was then impressed that we were able to tie the game up when it came to the 9th inning. Then all hell broke loose. It is sad how the Dodgers won that game. They didn't even have to put up a fight...

Line of the Day: Matt Kemp

April 14, 2012: Matt Kemp went 3-for-4 with two home runs and four RBI to lead  the Los Angeles Dodgers to a 6-1 victory over the San Diego Padres. He’s now batting .457 with five home runs and 15 RBI this season.

Ted Lilly & Todd Coffey Swap, Kenley Jansen’s Velocity, Stan Kasten Won’t Make It Rain

Old news, but Ted Lilly was activated off the disabled list and Todd Coffey was put on it. In what I’m sure was sheer coincidence, it was revealed that Coffey had been dealing with knee trouble. After the game Don Mattingly said Todd Coffey has been getting treatment on his knee — Eric Stephen (@truebluela)

Los Angeles Dodgers are no Angels
