Padres lose more than just a game
Peavy had the shortest outing of his career, throwing 33 pitches. I tried to warn you guys about Peavy, but nobody wanted to listen except Axion. I said "You fools! Inflamed tendons lead to one thing... viral upper respiratory infections!" I continued "and what do viral upper respiratory infections lead to?" I waited but received no response. Finally I answered "Losses!"
Peavy, Padres roughed up by Phillies
"Second at-bat, first swing -- I felt something in my bicep," Hairston said. "It felt like it wanted to tear, honestly. With each swing, it just got worse. It's one of those things that, as a player, you really get nervous when something like that happens. I just felt that I couldn't continue on."
If there's one thing we know about Peavy it's that we know he's willing to hide an injury and/or a sickness. If there is a second thing we know it's that it always means we lose in a horrific fashion. "We had no idea. We didn't find out until he came out [of the game]," Hairston said of Peavy. "Knowing Jake, he's a competitor. He probably didn't want anybody to know, but obviously the way it turned out, it affected him. We actually respect his decision to come out and at least try to play.
Headley returns after Hairston hurt
Headley traces his slump back to when he hurt his shoulder. "It's frustrating, the circumstance I'm in right now," Headley said. "I didn't forget how to hit. I feel I have the capability. I think that in any capacity, I can help this team out. But this wouldn't be the capacity I would choose."

Peavy audition derailed by flu : North County Times
"We sent him home," manager Bud Black said after Peavy allowed four runs on three hits and two walks. "No use staying in the clubhouse. ... Jake said, 'I want to make the start.' It just didn't happen tonight for him." Nobody should listen to Peavy when he says he's okay to pitch.

Evereth Cabrera went 2 for 3 with a stolen bse in Single A. "He attacked it like he hadn't missed a beat. He was aggressive at the plate and on the base paths. For the first time out, he was running well and swinging well."

Padres efforts to get out the vote for Adrian Gonzalez are doomed, but not pointless. Never hurts to show some love before free agency.
