Decent Weekend Set

Two out of three ain't bad. Didn't get a chance to see any of the games but two out of three ain't bad.

Listening to Mighty 1090's Chris Ello, he said in baseball you don't win every game but you have to play better and that is what we want to see out of the Pads, better play and I think we got that this weekend.

Article in the UT about Sandy Alderson. Apparently he is the guy who invented the Money Ball concept. Money Ball, at least as I understand, simply takes intuition and experience out of the player evaluation equation and replaces it with hard statistics. He also developed the on base percentage.

I'd say the Padres are going to be reworked big time next year because Sandy only wants players with the ability to get on base then get over and in Petco, that means line drives hitters and guys who can control the bat.

Mark Loretta is good and getting better. Love to watch him play. Knows the game, the situation, the pitcher, and acts accordingly.

Brian Giles, where are you? Man has this guy died in the 3 hole. He's completely psyched out when you goes up there. Maybe Bochy should sit him down a spell.

Lawrence pitched a great game Sat night. Out pitching is doing pretty good.

Next up, Colorado. Should beat these guys.

Padre Mike
