This is my new chant when Peavy is pitching "we've got win! we've got win!" I know it's just a typo in the UT but I like it.
Tom Krasovic breaks down the problems for us:
Problem No. 1 for the Padres: Williams (7-5) is a flyball pitcher. Problem No. 2: Williams was in poor form. Problem No. 3: On a fast track, he was backed by an infield defense that had three average-to-subpar defenders, plus first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, who of late has appeared fatigued on defense to Bochy.
We need to be playing our starters at this point. I couldn't agree more. Our infield is less than impressive, problem is they aren't available.
- Adrian Gonzalez = fatigued
- Josh Barfield = rested for his second consecutive game, this time due to a right handed pitcher (Webb) pitching.
- Khalil Greene is on the DL with a finger sprain.
- We don't really have a starting third basemen. Though Branyan hitting 2 HR's and 3 RBI made a statement yesterday. Now if we could get him to be consistent unlike the rest of the Padres team and play a bit of defense without throwing balls away we might have something.
