Additional outstanding issues involve the allocation of airplane expenses and allocation of the Petco Park owners' and commissioner's boxes.

  • Molina is a Padre killer: "(Molina) has had a lot of game-winning hits against us," Hairston said, shaking his head. "It just seems like coming up to the plate, he had a plan. It looked like he was trying to lift the ball. ... The experienced player that he is, I wouldn't be surprised if he looked at us and knew we were playing in."
  • More game recap: "The ball just kept going. It was carrying quite a bit. It was a hard one to catch when you're playing in, trying to cut off the runner and protect against a single," Hairston said. "If we're playing regular depth, that ball is caught, but in that situation you can't play regular depth."

  • Eckstein hits baseballs and talks about hitting baseballs.  "He's talking the game constantly," Black said. "Because of who he is as a player, he rubs off on people in a positive way.

  • Floyd is getting an MRI on his knee: "He said there was nothing he could point to that caused the swelling," Black said. "We have to get him on the field. The shoulder seems to be under control, so we'll just continue to try and get through this."
