I just wanted to log in real quick and wish you all a Merry Christmas. I hope Scanlan's foot gets better, I saw him limping around tonight. The Padres just peeked in their stockings and found a bullpen, which is nice.
The Padres signed right-handed pitchers Kevin Correia, Chris Britton and Oneli Perez to Minor League deals along with catcher Eliezer Alonzo. San Diego also agreed to a one-year deal with infielder Luis Rodriguez.
“Some other clubs offered more money,” said his agent, Barry Axelrod. “For the teams that are more cost conscious, they thought he might be a bargain. He wants to be a starter. It looks like a wide-open competition would be available (with the Padres).”
Tom Krasovic sketches out what he thinks the starting rotation will look like next year. Here are the candidates:
- Jake Peavy
- Chris Young
- Cha Seung Baek
- Josh Geer
- Wade LeBlanc
- Chad Reinike
Remember this is the season where we can hope this sort of thing is true:
Thus the last will be first, and the first, last
Merry Christmas to you and yours!
