COUNSIL SHUTS OUT THE PADRES ON THREE HITS
Winfield's Ghost, comparing himself to a professional baseball player, believes he deserves an All-Star break. Unreal.
Josh Hamilton hits 13 more homeruns than Justin Morn-Who in the Home Run Derby and loses...only Major League Baseball could screw up something as amazing as that was. It was the worst ending since Return of the Jedi.
Aid is enjoying his All-Star experience in New York City. "Sometimes things don't go your way. But hopefully we can turn it up in the second half. We're not too far off." Apparently he's enjoying the NYC bars a litte too much.
Commissioner Bud Selig is hosting a live chat on MLB.com today at 10:30am.
Yesterday afternoon, Tom Krasovic posted a story on the U-T Padre Blog reporting that the Cubs had recently contacted the Padres about the availability of Khalil...but a few hours it was completely deleted from the website. Strange.
Josh Bard is apparently ready to join the Padres.
Ben Sheets vs. Cliff Lee. First pitch is around 5ish on FOX.
