  1. What’s wrong with Antonelli?

  2. Good morning. I came across this story about the Cubs and thought some of you would enjoy it.

  3. Sorry for feeding the troll Geoff. Next time I will resist the temptation.

    Pads still on pace to lose 97 games so we have a long way to go. The big question is, if we continue to play better and remain on the fringes of this race, will the fire sale still happen. I hate to get rid of Randy Wolf at this point but then again he is rather fragile and his optimum trade value is probably now.

  4. I think it’s interesting that DePo posted a poll on his blog asking which day one pick was the “pick to click,” and Blake Tekotte is leading.

  5. #1@Bryan: He might be suffering from unreal expectations. He was good last season at Lake Elsinore (314/409/499) but remember that everyone hits in the California League. He was real good at San Antonio (294/395/476) but that was only 49 games. He does have a .196 BABIP so maybe it’s just bad luck? However, he is getting worse, 0 for his last 13 and 2 for his last 30. Maybe it’s time to send him back to San Antonio.

  6. Antonelli can easily be sent down to San Antonio as the Padres don’t really have a 2B there. Two of the last three games were started by a 28 year old, the other was started by a 25 year old. So it’s not like he’d be blocking other prospects.

  7. 2 for his last 30 ! Wow, that’s as bad as it will get for Antonelli.

  8. 5: That .196 BABIP is totally unsustainable. That’s bad luck. That being said, I wouldn’t mind sending him down for a couple of weeks and then bringing him back to AAA when he got hot again. Also, there are guys who struggle at AAA and then succeed in the majors. Antonelli might be one of them.

  9. #5@Schlom: If everyone hits in the Cal League, then everyone hits in the PCL as well:

    Cal: .271/.344/.426
    PCL: .279/.346/.437

    Cal: .265/.337/.397
    PCL: .273/.345/.432

    PCL ’08 and Cal ’07 (both of which Antonelli played in) are virtually indistinguishable in terms of offensive levels.

  10. Here’s a copy of an e-mail with Bob Scanlan:

    Hey Rick,

    As you know he has been around with the Bluejay organization and was brought in
    because there wasn’t a lot of immediate starting depth. He has certainly been
    effective since joining the Pads, but I can’t honestly say that Padre fans
    should expect this kind of domination for an entire year. He may turn out to be
    that happy surprises that the Pads seem to come up with every year (Meredith,
    Thompson, Bell, Seanez, etc.). Enjoy the scoreless innings and hope that Peavy
    and Young come back soon.

    Thanks for the email.

    records aren’t that impressive. However, from what we have seen of him of late,
    the guy is hot! What triggered now all of a sudden putting him ing the rotation?
    BTW, everyone really enjoyed your Post Game Show last night when you were
    talking about Carlin going through the eight signals (the middle finger thing
    was hilarious).

  11. I’m trying to talk my wife into going to the game tonight. No luck. She doesn’t want to spend the money. Grrr.

  12. #11@Turbine Dude: Sounds familiar E.V

  13. Erik Davis is pitching for Stanford in Game 2 of their Super Regional vs Cal State Fullerton right now …

    Stanford is up 2-1 in bottom of 2nd …

    If you watch this game on TV (ESPN), you’ll also see Christian Colon, drafted but not signed by the Padres last year, now playing SS for Fullerton St.

    note: the fact the DePo called Erik Davis Stanford’s “Friday night starter” … but now Davis is pitching game #2 for Stanford … bugs me a bit … I’m just saying it seems like a bit of over-spin … I like the Padres draft this year … no need to over-spin, imo …

  14. Ouch, Davis got yanked in the 3rd …

  15. OT … Branyan doing OK for Brewers … another hit & RBI today … I’m a fan of Branyan … and understand how/why he’s no longer on Padres (better for both, imo) …

  16. GY … post eaten by spam filter … link to a box score at … which shows Branyan with another hit & rbi … perhaps filter was balking at yet another Branyan ref? ;-)

  17. #12@JP: No dice. I’m watching in HD and the blog.

  18. Just noticed “Baum went off” … that’s kinda funny … assuming “Baum” is pronounced how I think it’s pronounced :-)

  19. #13@LynchMob: I just researched Standford’s rotation a bit more and saw that Davis did start Game #1 of the Regional (pitching 8 innings, giving up 4 runs) … and then started another game at the end of the Regional … so he probably was not the freshest starter in the rotation for Game 1 of the Super … OK …

    But it is a bummer that in his last 2 starts he’s not made it out of the 3rd inning … it will be interesting to see how he gets used in Omaha …
