Ely Likely for Wednesday

The likely starting pitcher for the Dodgers Wednesday is 23-year-old right-hander John Ely, obtained with Jon Link from the White Sox in the off-season trade for Juan Pierre. Ely’s name dropped out of the probable pitchers list for the Triple-A Albuquerque Dukes and showed up in the Dodgers clubhouse Tuesday, although there was still no confirmation from the team. The Dodgers need a pitcher Wednesday to take the place of disabled Opening Day starter Vicente Padilla. Ely is a 23-year-old right-hander taken in the third round of the 2007 draft out of Miami (Ohio) University by Chicago. He went 14-2 with a 2.82 ERA at Double-A last year and is 2-1 with a 3.00 ERA in three starts for Albuquerque, having last pitched Apr. 21. He has 12 strikeouts, but also eight walks, in 18 innings. — Ken Gurnick

    Ken, seriously !! Do you at all understand the meaning of a blog / forum ??? If your going to have this site I would think you would take it more seriously and post your offical MLB updates here more regularly. On the surface it appears like your annoyed by it and your doing as little as possible. Start contributing or simply shut it down.
