Heading to Camelback Ranch-Glendale …
Good morning from Peoria, where the Padres are, believe it or not, riding a two-game winning streak heading into today’s game at Camelback Ranch-Glendale against the Dodgers
This will be the Padres first trip to the new facility the Dodgers and White Sox share, which is just South of here from what I can gather. It’s always interesting seeing new ballparks and the new designs. I really like the facility in Goodyear where the Indians train.
So Cha Seung Baek gets his final start of the spring today. He’s allowed 15 earned runs over his last two starts. I’m curious from your perspective, is he in the rotation no matter what? Do you want to see someone else take his place? Baek he, based on last season, earned the opportunity to be a part of the rotation regardless?
Let’s talk about it. Leave a comment here and I’ll chime in with my thoughts. And don’t forget kids, we’re Twittering. Feel free to follow me there. I’ll be providing notes and 140-word pity
Here’s today’s lineup (has been revised):
CF, Jody Gerut
2B, David Eckstein
RF, Brian Giles
1B, Adrian Gonzalez
3B, Kevin Kouzmanoff
LF, Scott Hairston
C, Henry Blanco
SS, Everth Cabrera
SP, Cha Seung Baek
Morning notes: INF Chris Burke has been told he won’t make the team, which means SS Everth Cabrera and INF Edgar Gonzalez likely will be the reserve infielders. … Cliff Floyd (shoulder) is still getting treatment and “improving,” according to Bud Black. Black said the the “next 24 to 48 hours will be important.”
