Game Thread: 08/15 Padres vs. Mets


Lately Tyson Ross has become one of my favorite guys to watch on the mound. I hope our boys can get him the win tonight because he sure deserves it and we really need a win.

In roster news: Nick Hundley has been placed on paternity leave today as he waits for Heaven to let its light shine down and grace the world with a little Hundlebaby. As such, Padres are bringing up catcher Chris Robinson (acquired from Baltimore in June) for his first taste of the big leagues. Also, Jason Marquis is headed to the 60-day DL to allow room for Robinson.


Lineups: With Hundley away, Rivera gets another start behind the plate. Red-hot Venable will lead us off and Gyorko will once again bat cleanup. Let's hope these guys can lead our offense in a run fest and let the wheels come off early for Wheeler.
