Stauffer Takes the Mound in Rubber Game

You Can't Win Them All...

That's especially true of games in which you manage to group hits in such a way that 12 hits result in one run off of a solo home run. The Cincinnati Reds are a team with minimal infield depth and one of the worst bullpens in baseball. By the fourth inning, they had lost their shortstop and starting pitcher to injuries.

Unfortunately for Padre fans, the Reds had put the game out of reach with a two-run second inning. Two runs was apparently an insurmountable lead today.

Stauffer's Debut

Geoff Young of Duck Snorts has an interesting post on Stauffer's comps. Stauffer is the Padres #5 prospect (according to Baseball America) and his major league debut has been rather eagerly anticipated. Unfortunately tomorrow's game will not be televised. Thank you, Channel 4.

I just found out, BTW, that we shouldn't be thanking Channel 4 but rather ESPN. They own Wednesdays, baseballwise.

Thanks for that. I'll change it.
