In an attempt to make feel CY feel just like one of the fellas again...the Padres waste a great effort by the starter, don't hit a damned thing and play sloppy defense. Welcome back, CY! (Side note: The U-T header under the headline "Young sound, but Davis stars as two survivors square off". Ummm...really?)
(Check out the guy in the San Diego State sweatshirt...how brilliant is that? Carlos Mencia in the white long-sleeve t-shirt right behind him.)
Padres have been shut out seven times this season. I would have guessed more than that.
Shawn Estes had a good bullpen outing. Apparently there are no stairs leading to our bullpen at Petco.
If you're going crazy hitting MLBTR today...don't. Maddux to the Dodgers is the only possibility of any movement whatsoever and that looks doubtful, at best. One of the three worst records in all of baseball and we're not going to do a damn thing at the trade deadline....awesome.
The Portland to San Diego to Portland routine is pretty normal this season. I wonder if the players get to keep their frequent flier miles?
The Nationals have now lost seven in a row...I hate to sound like Billy Packer here, but the Race for the Strasburg "is over".
Danny Haren vs. Cha Seung Baek. First pitch is at 7:05pm. If you want diarrhea you better get to Petco tonight...tonight is the last night for $1 dogs.
