Coming into Los Angeles

The win yesterday was nice but you get the impression Houston was trying to see how bad of lineup they could throw out there and still win. Chris Burke and Orlando Palmeiro in the same starting lineup with Matt Albers on the mound? Phil Garner you're a real smart ass. But still a win's a win, so go Reds.

The club opens the first of a number of long road trips this season tonight in L.A. Arroyo gets his scheduled turn in the rotation tonight against Randy Wolf. Should be a pretty good night, unless you're Randy Wolf's mother. It's got to be hard watching your son get absolutely hammered. But we here at the Reds Rocket like nothing more, so sit back and relax and let Randy Wolf mesmerize you with his inability to get outs. Here is Redsbot 5000's predicted Dodger lineup.

1. Rafael Furcal SS - considers Mario Lopez a friend

2. Juan Pierre CF - author will bet his 1994 Oldsmobile 88 that this acquisition goes down as the greatest in the history of the Dodgers organization. What's not to love about a leadoff hitter who doesn't get on base, plays an awful centerfield, and well, doesn't lead off? The whole package is fantastic.

3. Nomar Garciaparra 1B - used to play baseball

4. Jeff Kent 2B - uses moustache to hide snacks, just in case he gets hungry during the game. His favorite is beef jerky

5. Luis Gonzalez LF - bears a striking resemblance to a young Abe Vigota

6. Russell Martin C - can play the theme song from Rockford Files on his saxophone

7. Andre Ethier RF - attended Arizona State, majored in most popular course of study; Receiving and Passing Along STDs. All students enrolled must maintain at least a 2.75 grade point average

8. Andy LaRoche 3B - supposedly this LaRoche has talent, though the author seems to recall a time when the same was thought of Adam

9. Randy Wolf P - participated in "Baseballers Against Drugs" free baseball clinic for inner-city kids...attended the annual Dodger Caravan on Feb. 6, 2007. Nearly 100% of kids began using drugs so as not to end up like Randy Wolf
