By now you all know that the Padres won yesterday afternoon by a score of a billion to one. Did anyone watch Baseball Tonight prior to the Phillies/Mets game when they did the Padres game recap? Do they have the episodes online? I'm trying to find it so I can embed a clip.
They were showing Orlando Hudson and Jason Bartlett rolling a double play in slow motion. As soon as Hudson feeds the ball to Bartlett and Bartlett's throw carries him towards first, Hudson gives him a swift spank on the butt. It wasn't even a congratulatory butt pat after the play, this was a full on spank during the play when he was most vulnerable to being spanked.
That's got to be distracting for Bartlett, wouldn't you think? Your concentration needs to be on the ball, your footwork, the runner and you've got to worry about getting spanked by your over excited second basemen too.
I work with a guy who needs to pat my co-workers on the back every time he sees them. Like he'll make a special trip into your office just so he can do it. I'll purposely try to stay away from him and he'll still find a way. We all talk about how awkward it is and how this guy can't keep his hands to himself. I wonder if the same type of thing happens in the Padres club house.
Let's see, what else happened? The Padres got their first shut out victory. Dustin Moseley pitched another great game, but this time he got run support.
Andre Eithier also extended his hitting streak to 27 games, because the home town scorer ruled Brad Hawpe's obvious error at first, a hit. It doesn't bother me too much, I'm sure the scorer helped Dimaggio at Yankee stadium and the mob probably helped him on the road.
