Los Angeles Dodgers manager Don Mattingly plans to meet with SP Chad Billingsley and pitching coach Rick Honeycutt to discuss Billingsley's recent struggles. He has posted an 11.19 ERA over his last three starts. "There's too many balls in the middle of the plate," Mattingly said. "The other day, he was just firing - and that's what I was upset about. Bills is one of those guys who throws harder and harder when he's struggling instead of throwing quality pitches. But there's days when you don't have that good stuff, so you've got to make an adjustment and pitch a little differently. I mean, the definition of insanity is doing the same thing over and over and expecting a different result."
