The Indictment Of Ned Colletti: Mets 7, Dodgers 3

So comes John Ely, possessed of mediocre peripherals in the minors (at no time did his K/9 rates exceed 9.0, and have been in decline every year he has advanced), and only three starts above AA, making his major league debut for the Dodgers. The obvious question on everyone's lips: where is Eric Stults? In Japan, you say? Well, it's not like the Dodgers need a long man who can perhaps start in the face of crippling injuries to the rotation. Oh, wait, they do?

Don't get me wrong; I don't think for a minute that Stults was going to save the team, not by himself anyway. Still, Ned Colletti's veteran fetish put Russ Ortiz and Ramon Ortiz on the 25-man roster in preference to a guy who would have been making very close to major league minimum; and April isn't over yet but the team DFA'd that Ortiz, and we're waiting to see how much longer Ramon can avoid the fork.

The lone bit of good news: Rafael Furcal should be able to avoid a trip to the DL.
