Spring Training Game Thread: 3/11 Padres vs. Giants

PEORIA, AZ - MARCH 06: Starting pitcher Mat Latos #38 of the San Diego Padres walks off the field after being removed from the spring training game against the Oakland Athletics at Peoria Stadium on March 6, 2011 in Peoria, Arizona. (Photo by Christian Petersen/Getty Images)

Without Jonathan Sanchez guaranteeing a sweep and Mat Latos hating SF, this would just be another boring Spring Training game, instead, I'm psyched.  Sometimes I think that people forget that baseball is meant to be entertaining.

Discuss the Padres with U-T Sports Writer Bill Center

Mick: Speaking of Latos, do pro sports teams ever use sports psychologists to help the mental aspect of players' games? It might be helpful for someone like Mat.

Bill Center: Yes. And I think that might be a good idea. His reaction to two bad outings this spring has been very unusual. And Friday night he faces the Giants in Scottsdale. Could be interesting given his "I hate S.F." ball campaign of earlier this spring. Didn't go over well in World Championship land.
