Nomar Garciaparra's recovery from a strained left calf appears to have stalled, and the Dodgers third baseman is scheduled to undergo a battery of tests this week.
"This thing just won't go away," Torre said. "He's tried to run and jog and it's still there. . . . Hopefully, this week we'll have some kind of idea where we are with him."
If you replace "thing" with "guy" and "it's" with "he's" in Torre's quotes, you have a pretty good idea of how Dodgers' fans feel about Nomar's status on the Dodgers' roster.
