Padres Thread

We need to take care of business tomorrow and then this weekend. The Nats and Phillies play this weekend, so there is an opportunity to gain ground on Philly or put some distance between us and the Nats.

If our pen does add some outside help soon (still think we need it), we are going to be in this thing. I'm not so sure Philly isn't going to have issues down the stretch in their locker room.

Mariners roared out of the gate at 13-2 and have gone 5-13 since to reach 18-15 for the season. They are this year's Mets. But this right here is why I don't get too hung up on the Braves getting off to a slow start. Nothing is determined in the first 3 weeks of the season.

Hopefully Kimbrel won't sign with anyone and we can get him the day after the draft so we won't lose the draft pick and slot money.   Something tells me we already have a verbal agreement with him.   I'd give him 3 years at $12-$13M per if he will wait until then.   Maybe wishful thinking, but.....

Snitker is holding Donaldson out for extreme precaution. Snitker did say he is available and could PH in todays game. Culberson starts for the second day in a row.

Well he almost made it until the end of April before the injury bug bit him.

Fortunately this seems to be a very minor injury that we are just being super cautious with. His average isn't quite what we want, but he is getting on base. His OBP is higher than it was in his MVP season, so he is doing something right.

Good lord, that play was almost doubly disastrous for us. Thank God everyone's okay.

What a cluster**** this game turned into in the 5th inning. Amazing how Folty went from cruising to nothing all because of a bunt hit by the catcher to start the inning.

Okay, that sucked, but the legitimately great news is that he didn't get Corey Kluber'd. That ball could have hit him flush in the jaw.

Amusingly, Folty's error on that play saves him four earned runs. He only gets credit for two.

Well it seems as if the braves will be bottom feeders not worth paying attention to by june. Atleast our minor league system is loaded, they are helping us win a whole lot right now. This is depressing!!

This whole game isn't on Folty but I think it's pretty clear that until he has his 2018 slider, he will not be Folty as his other secondaries are nowhere near that and he's not a guy that "pitches".
