An independent arbitrator reduced Kemp’s four-game suspension to two. Meanwhile, the four-million-dollar man trotted out this lineup today….

CF Pierre
LF Young
RF Ethier
C Martin
1B Loney
3B DeWitt
SS Berroa
2B Maza
P Kuroda

Yes, that’s a 7-8-9-1 of Berroa-Maza-Kuroda-Pierre. Against Jake Peavy. Because you know, Peavy needs all the help he can get. In a game when the Dodgers have neither Matt Kemp nor Jeff Kent, THAT is the lineup they’re running out. Wasn’t the whole point of having Andy LaRoche play 2B was so that he could relieve Kent?

I suppose I could mention that the aforementioned foursome are now 1-for-8 so far in the game that they’re trailing 6-0, but that would be beside the point. Besides, Pierre has one of the game’s only hits so far against Peavy (the other a double by Loney).
