Yet more evidence the Dodgers roll on per usual, bankruptcy or no: Jonathan Broxton, thought to be ready to return this weekend, has been shut down for another three weeks after his elbow flared up again. Presumably, the bone bruise became irritated. Things are so bad with Broxton, Dodgers Manager Don Mattingly said if the right-hander pitches again this season, he would consider it a bonus. Sans Broxton -- and Vicente Padilla, and for a month Hong-Chih Kuo -- the Dodgers have tried something of a closer-by-committee routine, although rookie Javy Guerra has emerged as Mattingly's current late-season choice. Kuo and Kenley Jansen are now back from injuries, so Guerra (1-0, 2.35 ERA two saves in 15 1/3 innings) probably will be watched closely. He was pitching at double A a month ago.
