Padres shutout by Dodgers, lose 0-2

I'm still pissed the Padres couldn't score with the bases loaded and nobody out. I have never seen a player look so lost in every at bat as Will Venable tonight.  Billingsly is walking Padres like he's a boyscout, the Padres are old ladies, and he needs his merit badge to become a Webelo.  What does Venable do?  He swings at EVERYTHING.  Not good swings either.  He was on his heels, he was falling to his knees, he looked helpless.  Of course when Venable hits a slow dribbler, we have Adrian Gonzalez idiling towards the plate in slow motion. Embarrassing.

Jon Garland pitched well but when he's taken you to the 7th inning, he's done his job and his time is up. I get Thatcher out of the 'pen.  If I've got one of the best bullpens in baseball.  I use it.

Oh well.  Tomorrow.  We get them tomorrow.  I'm going.  You should go to.
