Lineup Card: Rockies @ Dodgers

Apparently it's farewell to Brad Hawpe night in the Rockies clubhouse.  He's expected to be traded or released at some point in the next 12-24 hours.  More thoughts on that when it becomes official.

Rockies Lineup (61-57)
  1. 2B  Young
  2. CF  Fowler
  3. RF  Gonzalez
  4. SS  Tulowitzki
  5. LF  Smith
  6. 1B  Helton
  7. 3B  Stewart
  8. C    Olivo
  9. P     Hammel
The weeding out of Clint Barmes continues tonight.  No problem there.  EY needs to play as much as possible, and he needs to not play the OF.  This works.  This lineup makes the most sense for the Rockies (save Olivo) for the next 5-6 weeks.  Stick to it.  

Dodgers Lineup (61-59)
  1. CF  Podsednik
  2. 2B  Theriot
  3. RF  Ethier
  4. 1B  Loney
  5. 3B  Blake
  6. LF  Gibbons
  7. SS  Carroll
  8. C    Ellis
  9. P    Kuroda
My lord this lineup is somehow worse than their lineup last night.  Jay Gibbons, ladies and gentleman.  Jay freaking Gibbons.
