2010-05-14 13:00:00 (link to chat)Jay Who do you see the Dodgers settling on for the 4th and 5th spots in the rotation? Elbert hasn't exactly been lighting it up for the Isotopes, is he still a consideration? Would Washburn be that much of an improvement over what they already have?
(JoeR from Upstate)
Well, I'd assume that if Vicente Padilla returns he'll get first crack at reclaiming the fourth spot, and it sounds like John Ely has earned himself a longer look in the rotation based upon his past two starts. Scott Elbert hasn't pitched very well down in Albuturkey, but perhaps later this summer he'll round into shape, him or Josh Lindblom. Other than salty veteran goodness of the kind Joe Torre craves, I don't think Washburn would bring that much of an improvement, particularly given that he's been sitting on his derriere. For that kind of trouble, I wonder about the possibility of a Pedro Martinez return to Chavez Ravine. (Jay Jaffe)
2010-03-30 13:00:00 (link to chat)Any thoughts on these hot Dodger pitching prospects? Josh Lindblom, Scott Elbert, Aaron Miller? Will they or somebody else help this year or will they just stick with a Charlie Haeger in the rotation?
(dangor from New York)
It's gonna be really interesting to see what they do with the bottom of their rotation. Hell, it's already pretty strange what they're doing with the top of their rotation. (Do you think they'd start Padilla Game 1 if this was the playoffs? I really hope not.)

Elbert was a lot better than he gets credit for in the bigs last year. I wouldn't be surprised if he gets back up and pitches very well this year, presumably out of the pen, but who knows. (Shawn Hoffman)
2010-01-04 14:00:00 (link to chat)Kevin, what do the Dodgers think of Scott Elbert? Has he become a bullpen arm, or might he get a shot at a rotation opening? He seems to have that "fragile" tag, no matter what the facts indicate.
(Drew from New York)
He does, and I think he future lies in the bullpen because of it. (Kevin Goldstein)
2008-02-28 14:00:00 (link to chat)In a keeper strato league would perfer Adam Loewen or Scott Elbert?
(goiter6 from MN)
Double ouch, and I thought I had it rough trying to consider the merits of a stack of mediocre lefties for my bullpen. I'd take Elbert, if only because the track record for getting hurt is slightly shorter, and in part out of recognition that the Dodgers should do a good job getting him back in action.

2009-10-15 17:00:002009 NLCS Game One (Phillies/Dodgers)Hence my earlier point--you *know*, barring a double-switch, that whoever pitches the eighth is leaving the game before the ninth. You're in a one-run game. One of your relievers is Scott Elbert, and another, Billingsley, is someone on this night you won't use for more than a right-handed batter. Kuo was firing bullets. Certainly seems like over-managing to me. (Christina Kahrl)
2008-10-02 11:00:00Thursday Playoff GamesFair point. What do you think about James McDonald and Scott Elbert in terms of their 2008 progress. Did any pitchers in the Dodger org take a big step forward? (Jay Jaffe)
