As noted in Tuesday morning’s comments, the Padres have signed journeyman right-hander Brett Tomko for the stretch run. Tomko, a mainstay in the Padres rotation back in 2002, was a second-round pick of the Cincinnati Reds in 1995. He and Jarrod Washburn were the best pitchers taken that round, which is damning with faint praise. Tomko also rejoins Mike Cameron, with whom he once was traded for Ken Griffey Jr.
Eh, there’s more, but even I’ve lost interest…
