With southpaw Wandy Rodriguez on the mound, Justin Huber likely will make his Padres debut, getting the start in left field. Nathan at Oz MLB Players profiles the Melbourne native, while Jeff at Royally Speaking is sorry to see Huber leave Kansas City and thinks the youngster was mishandled.

  1. Well, lets not panic, but we all know whats coming, Trevor is coming to the end of his run and the Padres better have a plan in place to ease him and the fans through this tough transition.

    For instance:

    Run Bell out there on consecutive nights
    Promote Bell as the successor to Trevor
    Cool it on the Trevor Time theatrics
    Maybe even commit to a retirement now so we can all enjoy his final year.

    The Padres, Trevor and his agent must have the courage to face the music, if they don’t, he will whither on the vine and we will be pissed by the end of the season.

    He still has gas in the tank, but not on consecutive nights.

  2. Look at he bright side fellow Padres fans. We own baseball’s highest team batting average at 355! And everyone said we couldn’t hit…. :-)
