Note: The Dodger Thoughts blog has moved to the Los Angeles Times.

Can you believe I forgot about this? Dodger Thoughts reader BigCPA reminded me. Read Paul DePodesta's response to Big's question about Joel Guzman, and more ...

Earliest piece of news: touting Buddy Carlyle, Ryan Rupe, and Scott Erickson as starting pitching prospects if someone goes down. For the most part, this chat reads like public relations more than anything probing. Few hard questions or hard answers.

Update: It's a lefthander's perogative to change his mind. Wilson Alvarez is angling to start again, according to Ken Gurnick at MLB.com.

Meanwhile, people continue to fall in love with Erickson. Dodger pitching coach Jim Colburn is the latest swooning.

"I can tell [Erickson] is 100 percent committed. He came ready," Colborn told Gurnick. "His intensity is high and that speaks volumes about his desire. He's primed and ready to go."
