Padres lose to Marlins 4-2, Miguel Tejada ineffective

I didn't watch the game last night and I haven't caught up on all of the comments, but I get the feeling that people are pretty pissed that Aaron Cunningham was sent to AAA Portland as opposed to say, Everth Cabrera. To that I saw, HOGWASH!

Also, I say, I see what you did there, Padres. You send down the young guy who was doing halfway decent in a not so subtle way of saying, "Once the team is in Escondido, all you Aaron Cunningham fans can get your fix by driving 45 minutes up the 15!" SO SNEAKY. SO SNEAKY.

So, I also thought that Kevin Correia was supposed to start yesterday's game, but I see Wade LeBlanc up there. I actually did catch enough of the game to see Wade inside out a pitch to left field. I'd love to see a position player hit like Wade LeBlanc. He stands there, totally unassuming. When he takes his swing, he's obviously not trying to drive the ball. More like he just wants to just make some kind of contact, but almost purposely not too much contact. Like a golf chip shot or a tennis lob. He's not standing like an Ichiro, ready to sprint to first base. Instead, he just kinda waits there. He makes his decision to swing or not to swing well before the opposing pitcher has received a sign. And then it works and he's on base. Again, standing there sorta unassuming like it was supposed to happen.

I figure a position player that hit like that would be fascinating to watch every day.

OK. Let's win this series, Padres. As far as Miguel Tejada knows, all we do is lose.
