This is good news. With any luck we'll never see Klesko in a Padres uniform again. There is simply no place for him. If we could get a bit of cash, some prospects or a used car we should take it.
You know Castilla has just recently started looking better at the plate, but Bellhorn seems like a much better option at third.
I'm surprised to hear Kottaras name floating around in these trade talks since he has been touted as the future of the Padres for so long. However, you need to trade a player with value to get a player with value.
Who, indeed? Kevin Towers remembers Klesko as a high school pitcher with a quality curve ball and a fastball that reached the low 90s. Left-handed pitchers have lasted a long time with a lot less.
No matter how menial the task, Ryan Klesko is prepared to pitch in.
"You want me to run and get some (sunflower) seeds or some coffee for some guys?" he said. "I've been doing that for the last couple of months."
I think the Surf Dawgs are looking for a pitcher.
