I’m still floored that Joel Pineiro didn’t work out as Boston’s closer. With his track record, who could have seen that coming? Oh, wait; I think the answer is everyone. Naturally he will dominate the Padres.
In less cynical news, Chris Young returns to the mound Thursday evening. Here’s hoping the oblique injury and subsequent layoff don’t come with any lingering side effects. It would be real nice to leave St. Louis with a split. Go Padres!
