IGD: Padres @ Diamondbacks (24 Apr 07)

first pitch: 6:40 p.m. PT
television: Channel 4SD
matchup: David Wells (0-1, 5.06 ERA) vs Randy Johnson (0-0, –)
previews: Padres.com | SI.com

David Wells? Randy Johnson? I think Messrs. Flansburgh and Linnell said it best:

You’re older than you’ve ever been.
And now you’re even older.
And now you’re even older.
And now you’re even older.
You’re older than you’ve ever been.
And now you’re even older.
And now you’re older still.

Johnson makes his first start since returning to the Diamondbacks. Unfortunately he’s had tremendous success against just about everyone on the current Padres roster. Combined, they’re batting just .124/.154/.301 against Johnson in 117 plate appearances. Brian Giles and Mike Cameron account for 60 of those, and it ain’t pretty — they have five hits and 30 strikeouts between them.

The good news? I dunno, I was hoping you might have some. ;-)
