The 9-6 Padres: Coming home edition …
Hey friends, long road trip. I’ve been neglectful with the blog, so I apologize for that. I’ll be better about it moving forward. I think we’ve had some good posts and, as always, it would be good to hear from you.
Here’s a radio interview I did on Monday with the boys from 1360, Josh and Brian.
In fact, let’s do this: Email me up with your Padres questions and I’ll do my best to answer them in something we have now called the “Inbox.” Think of it as the new mailbag. We’re run a series of question and answers and I’ll certainly let you know when we do.
So what’s on your mind?
Is it the pitching? Do you wonder/worry about the bullpen, other than Heath Bell? I like what Bell has been able to do and I figure he’s going to get plenty of save opportunities. I also like Luke Gregerson and think he can eventually become, maybe sooner than later, the eighth-inning guy.
How about the offense? Boy, it’s sure a different game when you play in Philadelphia isn’t it?
Twenty runs in three days? Yep, I think the Padres would take that any day. Back in the NL West this week, they scored four in two losses.
What about Brian Giles? Do the strikeouts bother you, how he’s chasing pitches or do you believe in track record and figure that Giles, a slow starter, will get it together as we move ahead into May? I think we’ve seen some good things from the young guys, Chase Headey and Nick Hundley. I think David Eckstein is the perfect No. 2 hitter.
Anyway, hit me up with some comments here and leave me an email for your “Inbox” later this week.
