only thing i would question is throwing furcal back in so fast. hes not going into this series with the momentum of berroa and the rest of the guys. i just hope he can produce. i love dewitt, he deserves this job. hes got that hungry mentality as the rest of the youth movement on this team. tomorrow cant come soon enough!! im so pumped! GO DODGERS!!!!!!
