Psychological Dilemma P.S.

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

When backup third baseman Ron Coomer came up each of the past two nights, I had twinges of not wanting him to do well and create a third-base controversy. But ultimately, by the time the pitch came, I was rooting for him, on the theory that good things will come from good things. And on the additional theory that there was no need to worry that he would do well.

Coomer did have the Dodgers' hardest-hit ball of the first five innings Wednesday, but grounded out with one out, the infield in and a runner on third in the sixth, on his way to an 0-for-4 night and a .100 season average.

Well, he tried. So did I.
