There is some degree of uncertainty about Pennington's status for next year. He will be eligible for arbitration for the final time, meaning he'll be in line for a raise on his $2.75 million base salary from this season.
He wouldn't say how, offering only that “it's just different from any team I've been around,” though a quick glance at the surface offers plenty in the way of different. The Dodgers have the highest payroll in baseball history - in excess of $240 million - including a bench and a disabled list making more money than entire teams combined.
The Dodgers' sixth-inning scoring spree from Monday night seemed to be carrying over into Tuesday night before Justin Turner was cut down on a relay throw home. But just to make sure they got the call correct, crew chief Brian O'Nara initiated a review to see if Rockies catcher Michael McKenry was blocking the plate.
First impressions mean a lot in today's baseball world. Start off hot and you get a lot of slack: " Adrian Gonzalez ? slumping" " Carl Crawford ? He'll come back", " Josh Beckett ? clearly a top ten pitcher" Overreactions? Love them.
The Dodgers had their biggest inning of the season, scoring eight times in the sixth inning Monday night on their way to an easy 11-3 victory over the Colorado Rockies.

Ah, yes, life is suddenly pretty good for the Boys in Blue. They're winning, the San Francisco Giants are losing and everybody in their lineup is hitting.
Asked late Sunday afternoon if he had an opinion to volunteer with respect to the National League's Most Valuable Player Award, Adrian Gonzalez did not hesitate. "Kershaw!" the Dodgers first baseman said, quickly, firmly, almost defiantly.
To understand the difference between the Joc Pederson who demolished the Pacific Coast League this season, and the one who's been a bit player for the Dodgers in September, begin with his pregame routine. “His routine down there early in the game was like, right before the game he got to the cage by himself and we worked every day,” said Franklin Stubbs, the hitting coach at Triple-A Albuquerque.
In the top of the sixth inning Saturday night, Carl Crawford appeared to beat shortstop Matt Duffy 's throw to first base, prolonging an inning and allowing another run to score. First-base umpire Doug Eddings called Crawford out.

Mandatory Credit: Kirby Lee-USA TODAY Sports Yusmeiro Petit who last time out took the definition of a Maddux to the next level hurling a complete game, one run effort against the Diamondbacks in only 87 pitches will have another, extremely difficult task tonight.
Bruce Bochy waited on the mound for the new pitcher, and when No. 43 arrived, Bochy did the same thing he has done thousands of times.
It was like a Broadway show in which the first cast gives way to a second cast the next night. The dialogue, laughter and tears were the same.
