TSN is now reporting that they have pushed Nomo's start back to Tuesday. That's not necessarily a bad thing for fantasy owners, because he now starts in Arizona instead of in Colorado.


and then twice next week..........

YES yes ..yes yes eys ...

1st week of playoffs ... what an emotional rush JDH ... from long faces to elation......Please stop.. :-)


Yeah, not only that but the two starts come in Arizona and at home vs San Diego, two fairly weak offenses, so very favorable playoff matchups.

Well Klesko is now out, so that takes it down a notch. It's still a below average offense in a pitcher's park, which makes it a great matchup.

Now aparently Nomo is only questionable to make the Tuesday start against the DBacks:

DODGER REPORT
Nomo's MRI Reveals Some Inflammation

By Ben Bolch, Times Staff Writer


Hideo Nomo will miss at least his next start after an MRI exam Wednesday revealed inflammation in his rotator cuff. Dodger officials say they believe the diagnosis is related to fatigue and should not sideline the 15-game winner for an extended period.

"That's a whole lot better than finding an injury," pitching coach Jim Colborn said. "It's just overuse or tiredness."

In a rare acknowledgment by the typically reserved right-hander, Nomo told Colborn on Monday after his last start — a five-inning outing against Houston in which he gave up nine hits and four runs (two earned) — that he felt a loss of zip on his fastball. He did not experience pain or feel weakness in his shoulder, however.

"A Japanese writer said it's a little unusual Nomo would come to his coach and say something specific," Colborn said. "In my experience with him, it is unusual. He doesn't ever express any complaints."

Colborn saluted Nomo's forthrightness, calling it "the right thing to do."

Wilson Alvarez is scheduled to take Nomo's turn in the rotation Sunday against the Colorado Rockies. Colborn said he expects Nomo to throw a bullpen session Sunday, and if there are no setbacks, Nomo could make his next start Tuesday against the Arizona Diamondbacks.

Nomo (15-11) has pitched 200 1/3 innings this season and was on pace to challenge his personal record of 228 1/3 in 1996. Nomo has pitched at least 190 innings in each of the last four seasons, prompting Manager Jim Tracy to label him "a warrior."

Nomo went 4-0 with a 3.32 earned-run average and 46 strikeouts in 40 2/3 innings last September, but Colborn rejected the notion that the Dodgers couldn't win the wild-card race without him.

"If you're trying to imply that if he's not here that we don't have a chance," Colborn said, "I'd say that's the farthest thing from being the reality."

Nomo declined to comment.
