Open Thread, 5/9: Padres vs Reds

Jake Peavy (2-0, 2.32) vs Aaron Harang (1-2, 3.96)

4:10 PM start

Khalil is expected to return today and we may get to see Tim Stauffer sometime this week. Probably in relief to begin with, but then quickly into that fifth spot since we need a new lamb to sacrifice to the Curse.

Bochy's master plan should work out just right as the Padres face the Reds with Peavy today. We didn't want to completely destroy the Cardinals as they have to face the Dodgers for four. This way, we take 3 of the 4 games in St. Louis, and we let the Cardinals feel like they're rolling on offense to start the Dodgers series. A Cardinals sweep now puts our boys in a great position.

Also... Happy Birthday, Tony Gwynn!
