As first relayed by Bill Shaikin of the Los Angeles Times, shortstop Hanley Ramirez is back in the Dodgers’ starting lineup on Wednesday night versus the Mets after sitting out eight games because of a jammed right shoulder. He will start at short and hit cleanup against Mets right-hander Dillon Gee.

Ramirez is batting .359/.410/.641 with 11 homers and seven stolen bases in 55 games this season for the first-place Dodgers, who will be looking for their 40th win in 48 games Wednesday in Los Angeles.

The last team to rattle off a 40-8 stretch was the Stan Musial-led 1942 World Series-champion Cardinals.

    I’m not a dodger fan but I tell ya they look light a freight train that’s not gonna stop. I’m sure all the playoff teams are hoping they cool off come playoff time.

    The addition of Hanley Ramirez and Matt Kemp make the Dodgers unbelievably good . No predictions yet , but the Dodgers look like a good bet to be there in October .

    Sure the Dodgers had to break open the bank to get the players they want. But after the debacle off Frank McCourt and the Dodgers nearly going bankrupt, this team has found their winning ways. Other teams are winning well a smaller budget but you can’t buy team chemistry. With the Dodgers having a carousel of injuries to key players each month…the next man up steps up to the plate and contribute. Guys like Punto, Schmaker, Mark and AJ Ellis are helpful puzzle pieces. Guys like Gonzalez, Ethier and Uribe has been solid year round. The pitching rotation with Kershaw, Greinke and Ryu can compete with anyone and the bull pen has been above expectation the past month and a half. Sure this team will cool down but we don’t know when. Even if and when they do go on a slump; I think they’re more than capable of a strong recovery. Keep the magic going Dodgers. One game at a time.
