Ethier has the Triple Crown

Did you happen to notice that Andre Ethier is leading the league in batting average, home runs, and RBIs as of the end of last night? That is right. Who knows how much worse the Dodgers offense would look without Mr. Ethier, who missed several games to start the season, but has looked absolutely fantastic. I hope it lasts, but the cynicism in me knows that he will cool off eventually. Hopefully the pitching and offense will heat up before that happens.

Manny is back in the lineup tonight and no one will be more glad than Matt Kemp, who has been struggling severely since Number 99 went on the 15-day DL.

Maybe Charlie will get his first victory of the season. With the knuckleball and horrid bullpen, everything will be a crapshoot tonight.
