I don't know about you but that season really took a lot out of me. There's not much left. The Padres took just about everything from me and gave me some nasty dollar hot dogs in return. Fair trade I guess.
Bard, Estes and Hayhurst are all gone. Bard and Estes elected to test out free agency while Hayhurst was picked up off waivers by the Blue Jays. Luke Carlin and Sean Kazmar were sent to Portland. Bard said some clubs have shown some interest in him. The Padres have shown some interest in picking up former Padres catcher Brad Ausmus. Why? Maybe the secret Padres formula of mixing inexperienced rookies with over the hill veterans will work its magic again in 2009 and we can win 80 games barely.
- Corey Brock answers his mailbag. I guess if we're Padres fans we should be hoping that the Padres leave Kouzmanoff right where he is.
- You're not going to believe this: Jake Peavy could be a perfect fit for the Atlanta Braves. It's amazing how great players seem to fit so perfectly on just about every team.
- This guy sent a baseball card to Bochy for an autograph at the beginning of the season and it was just sent back to him. His link to remind us of Bochy's colossal head size is probably the best part.
