The Padres just announced that yet another pitcher has been placed on the disabled list with elbow soreness. This time it's Robbie Erlin. Arm injuries have become an epidemic for the Padres. It's beyond ridiculous, I can't even name all the pitchers off the top of my head anymore.
The Padres have selected the contract of RHP Blaine Boyer form Triple-A El Paso.

It's strange that the team has been pretty pathetic all season, but for some reason it all seems to be coming to a head today. Last night's loss broke the dam and fan pessimism and anger has flooded the mission. Hearing news like this seems to give us even less confidence in the way this team is being run.
