New Padres defeated by the Dodgers like a billion to 1

As the two men held the invisible man up by his size 9 head, he knew from the look of the third man that he would be getting tuned into Tokyo very soon.

It was a day of new faces and fresh attitudes as the Padres finally ended their run with the good old Hudson/Bartlett double-play combination and moved forward with Everth "I used to have a big-ass poster on the side of the building" Cabrera and Li'l Alexi Amarista, part of the Ernesto Frieri trade.

The faces were new, but the results were somewhat similar as the two went 1 for 6 combined.

The Dodgers meanwhile, took advantage of the joy of newness and the recency of beating an icy hot Stephen Strasburg and scored all the runs, crushing the spirits of the youngsters.

But somehow things feel different, knowing that Jason Bartlett isn't going to strike out pathetically or ground out at the rate of $10k an AB. But I guess we had him for his defense.

Go Padres!
