Unbelievable!

From Tom Krasovic at SignOnSanDiego.com:

"Bochy said it was Sean Burroughs' decision to bunt in Friday' game with Robert Fick on first, none out and the Padres trailing 3-2 in the eighth. Burroughs popped out to third baseman Pedro Feliz."

Richard, take a deep breath. Please, don't explode.

Great. Burroughs has gone off the deep end. His confidence clearly shot, it's probably time for him to assume a new role. Like bagboy at Vons.

I've been a Burroughs supporter, maintaining that his perforformance was actually quite good, given his youth. After all, most prospects his age are in Triple-A, not in their third year as a major league regular.

But this incident leaves me with one conclusion:

If you don't think you're a hitter, you're probably right.

(Richard: Speaking of things that are unbelievable, the Padres are the only first place team to send only one player to the All-Star Game. National League teams sending more players include: 2nd Place Atlanta, 2nd Place Chicago, 3rd Place Houston, 3rd Place Los Angeles, 3rd Place Florida and 5th Place New York. Teams sending an equal number of players include: 2nd Place Arizona, 4th Place Milwaukee, 4th Place San Francisco, 4th Place Philadelphia, 5th Place Colorado, 5th Place Pittsburgh and 6th Place Cincinnati. That's just garbage.)

They need to send him to Triple-A to work on some things. He wasn't ready when he was called up and he still isn't.

Where are the deserving Padres? face it, there are hardly any all star quality players on the padres. Those that are there are either having a bad year or injured or both.

I think if Hernandez and Eaton were not hurt they would have been on the roster. Same goes for Loretta. But the fact is, they are all hurt.

Hoffy has a few saves, but even I can see that he isnt a normal "Hoffman" that was so dominant in years past.

Giles (period)

Beyond that, not many... Ramon? Maybe, Loretta? Not over Kent, and not missing as much time as he has... Hoffman? Possibly, (part career, part success - a lot of other top closers are having solid year as well)...
