    Headley singles.

    tie game.

That's an amazing statement."

    These last two days are exactly why I was willing to not rest on the laurels and grab Garza if he were available.

    I don't think this is going to become a habit, but it's unsettling nonetheless.

    I figured a 6 run lead was cool to go to the ATM and grab a beer from the 7/11. Not the case!

    Lecure just starting to warm.. Homer is going to have to man up and get this last out.

    I would give Marshall a nice long stint tonight. Lot of lefties on this Padre team.

    Jeez Homer, and I thought I was being generous.

    Wow, it's not easy to give up 6 runs to the freakin' Padres in an inning. Well done, Homer. Just when I was thinking I was completely wrong about Bailey, he pulls a stunt like this. Amazing.

    Innings starting to add up. We'll need LeCure and Redmond at least before this season's over.

    I don't think these last two days are all on the pitchers. Leake was getting squeezed and both days if you watch, the balls are hit nowhere near the defenders.

    Whoever scouted the Padres has the defense positioned all wrong for this team.
    Sabermetrics is this: A batter's goal is to extend the inning. Extend enough innings and you're going to score runs. Extend more innings than your opponent and you're going to score more runs than him.

    Forget the rain. It's never an official game until the Reds piss away a run between third base and home plate. - Bluegrass Redleg

    Padres need to be given credit. They have a good offense. Doesn't excuse the poor pitching, but still, they are no pushovers.

    Homer didn't find some magical solution to make him a really good pitcher. His BB, HR, and H/9 are all the same as last year and it's the third year in a row his K/9 has went south. He's probably due for a couple more of these.
