Andre Ethier placed on the disabled list

is heading to the disabled list.

Ethier fractured the
tip of his pinkie finger while taking practice swings on Saturday. Regrettably for the Dodgers, he happened to be leading the NL in all three triple crown categories at the time, and has become the team’s designated walkoff artist.  There isn’t a player they need more than him at the moment, so his loss will no doubt be felt.

And that would be the case even if his primary replacements weren’t Garret Anderson (.136/.161/.237) and Reed Johnson (.242/.250/.355).  Dodgers fans will feel their contributions, all right, much in the same way one feels White Castle hamburgers after an ill-advised swing through the drive-thru after an evening of Jager shots.

    “the same way one feels White Castle hamburgers after an ill-advised swing through the drive-thru after an evening of Jager shots.”
    LOL!! it’s like you were with me all those nights coming back from Long beach island 3 nights a week. I can’t help it But I still crave and get White castle everytime I go to LBI. White castles are almost nill anymore, I only know of one now, and it’s 30 minutes away on the way to the beach.

    Actually, Xavier Paul is likely to be called up and get a fair amount of playing time – when Manny was on the DL, he got about half the starts and hit a perfectly respectable .276/.319/.488. He’d probably be the 4th outfielder, but they’d rather he have regular playing time in AAA, I think.
