The Beavers held a 4-3 lead headed to the seventh, when both offenses went nuts. After falling behind, Portland scored six in the top of the ninth to take a 12-7 lead, then hung on for dear life as Omaha answered with four of its own… Antonelli dropped from his customary leadoff spot to the #9 hole. He responded with one of Portland’s six home runs on the evening.

Three errors for Sogard? Ouch. One in the third, one in the fourth, one in the seventh… I’m getting a little tired of seeing our polished college pitchers get smoked. If these guys can’t advance quickly, then what’s the point of drafting them? I dunno, Kluber looked pretty good the one time I saw him. I’m just in a lousy mood. Losing sucks.

Can we start IGD’s for the farm games? Maybe it won’t be quite as depressing (it doesn’t matter if they’re any good – only that individuals do well)…
#1@Sean Callahan: At this point I would rather watch Missions baseball than Padre Baseball.
“Losing sucks.” Pretty much says it all.
I dont think this is any kind of a shocker but the Pads are interested in Jones.
I thought Towers was on the radio saying they weren’t interested in Jones? There’s not much point, I’d rather see what Gerut could do.
The Rocky Mountain News says that we’ve talked to Colorado about a deal for a CF.
#5@Tom Waits: Hmm I dont remember him saying anything about jones when he was on Ello yesterday, and to be honest I could see the Padres putting Guret in CF and Jones in LF and then start looking to trade Giles.
Bleh I never trust trade rumors that are in the division especialy
#6@Steve C: oops sorry hit enter and some how my post got submitted a bt early.
especially with a team that they battled for the WC spot with last year.
#5@Tom Waits: Although a trade with the Rockies would make since they have 3 CF’s on the big league club (Taveras , Spilborghs, & Podsednik) as well as a somewhat decent CF in AAA (Christopher Frey).
KT said today in the NC Times that the team had no interest in Jones
