According to Austin Laymance of, Mark Ellis suffered a right quad strain in last night’s win over the Brewers. The 35-year-old hurt himself while trying to leg out an infield single in the fifth inning.

Ellis is scheduled to undergo an MRI today to determine the severity, but it sounds like Dodgers manager Don Mattingly is prepared for an extended absence.

“He kind of seemed to be optimistic, but we’ll just have to see,” manager Don Mattingly said after the Dodgers beat the Brewers, 7-5. “Usually guys don’t come out of the game like that and it not be something. I want to be optimistic, but usually you see a guy come out and kind of pull up like that, it’s usually something that’s not going to be a day or two.”

Ellis is off to a hot start this season, hitting .342 (25-for-73) with two home runs, two doubles and 11 RBI in 20 games. Nick Punto replaced Ellis at second base last night, but Jerry Hairston, Jr. and Skip Schumaker are among the other options to fill in.

      Take a look at yourself, man. You’re talking like Sarah Palin and holding poo.

      I know you’re funnier than that. It’s harry. Up your game.

    • cur68 - Apr 27, 2013 at 1:25 PM

      I have a long and well established history of referring to harry as a poo flinger. Its the history. I thought you respected the history.

      When you enter Valhalla, do you want your War of 1812 heroes to see you like that?

      • cur68 - Apr 27, 2013 at 2:22 PM

        Yep. Pretty much. I never claimed to have any class, now did I?

        How come you’re better at picking on me than harry?


    • cur68 - Apr 27, 2013 at 2:32 PM

      Harry’s a chimp. He’s only got his own crap for ammo. I, on the other hand, am sweet smelling, relatively civilized, and posses a brain that can do more than look like a bowl of tapioca, unlike harry. Besides, picking on you is easy. I cite the War of 1812, leer at Wonder Woman, and eschew yellow jumpers. That’s basically like dipping oneself in bacon grease and running past a dieter, in terms of picking on you.

      I’m not touching that poo.

    It wouldn’t be so bad, copying and pasting the same post over and over to every thread, disregarding the fact that once has it been germane in any way, if there were just a hint of insight or otherwise redeeming observation. Obvious spamming troll is obvious. And spamming. And punctuating it with tour signature “you betcha” pegs you as a Palin devotee. The only decent thing about you here is your username, but I would guess even Clint Eastwood wouldn’t be impressed.

      It’s okay, he’s just an asshole.

      • dirtyharry1971 - Apr 28, 2013 at 3:16 AM

        you are a total joke and need a life, im not just saying that i really mean that. I write about baseball and i dont lie and i write facts. If you cant handle that oh well, so sad too bad!!

      • tuberippin - Apr 28, 2013 at 3:00 PM

        The irony of your statement is brain-numbing.

        Stop and think about that for a second. You’re telling me *I* need a life…but you’re spending your free time going across multiple blog posts spamming the same couple sentences. Yes, stating a team’s record is a fact, but you’re placing those statements into articles that have nothing to do with the Blue Jays, nor the AL East. That’s just fucking sad.

        But hey, you can say whatever you need to feel better about yourself bud. This is the internet, no fucks given.

    • tuberippin - Apr 28, 2013 at 3:02 PM

      Yeah…when they do it, it’s relevant to what’s being discussed. It’s not a non-sequitur inserted into articles about teams on the opposite side of the country.

      Your inability to realize when things are tangential and when they are related is disconcerting.

    never once…

    Dodgers are dropping like flies. Not even May yet and they are struggling to stay healthy. Bad sign.
