PADRES: Farm system appears improved
"I think it's improved," said Baseball America editor Jim Callis. "They're in the middle of the pack, but there's always 29 teams that think we've ranked their farm system too low.

Masur's Musings: Real-LEE good...
I was very surprised that Randy Wolf was booed as he was in being introduced before tonight's game in Philadelphia. Wolf began his career with the Phillies and was a fan favorite. A group known as the "wolf pack" formed, a bunch of guys, who were related, began donning wolf masks every time Randy would pitch.

Perpetual Padres Saga: I'm not too satisfied with this
Kim Ng is a great candidate and I hope she will get the job by being the first female and Asian general manager. She has a ton of experience in the baseball industry and I know she can handle everything when it comes to this sport. If she teams up with CEO Jeff Moorad, they will be life savers and make the fans and myself incredibly happy. Kim will prove to those hater who think she should not be the general manager just because she is a woman.
