IGD: Padres @ Rockies (7 Sep 07)

Game #140
time: 6:05 p.m. PT
tv: 4SD
sp: Justin Germano (7-8, 4.11) vs Elmer Dessens (2-2, 7.39)
pre: Padres.com, B-R.com

While rummaging through the MLB press notes for Friday night’s game I found this little nugget at the bottom of page 9: the Padres have lost a total of 241 games to the disabled list in 2007. Compare that with 600+ each of the past two seasons. Of players that were expected to contribute in a material role this season, only two — Brian Giles (34) and Clay Hensley (25) — have missed as many as 20 games. That’s pretty impressive, especially when you consider how many old guys there are on this team. Props to trainer Todd Hutcheson and his staff for a job well done.

  1. Hitters have now hit an abysmal .308 off of Meredith this year.

  2. I can’t believe I’m saying this but…Go Giants! I feel so wrong saying that.

  3. The Storm looked dominate tonight although the hardest hit ball was a deep fly out by Blanks. Inland Empire’s pitchers were all over the place out of the strike zone issuing 9 walks. They managed to hit one big target,KB. Charlie Huff, their coach, had better control of his knuckle ball. So there’s still a chance to see Lake El this year vs. Lancaster. Blanks,Kouz and Silent L in the same infield would be memorable.

  4. #53: According to the U-T, Hairston and NOG are “close to being activated.”
