Shut out Again

Padres lost last night to the LA Dodgers (3-0) because basically they are in an all-time hitting funk.

The Quotes
From the UT, Bochy rates the slump as "worst in his 12 year tenure."

Ducksnorts pleads a case for Magadan, as in don't fire him. But, Geoff, just because Dave had plate discipline doesn't mean he can teach plate discipline.

LA Times Online has this nasty little paragraph:
"The Padres, the defending NL West champions, have lost four in a row and are already at the bottom of the division at 8-14."

What are they saying exactly?

NCTimes had this to say
"The lowest-scoring team in the major leagues, the Padres were shut out for the second time in three games to lose their fourth in a row and fall to 3-10 at home and 8-14 overall. On their current homestand, the Padres are averaging 1.9 runs per game and batting .183 (49-for-267)."

Pitching Wasted
And another good pitching performance is wasted. Chris Young and his cold thumb (?) pitched well into the 6th inning. Good job, Chris.

But according the Ben Johnson, "its a long season and there is still time to come back..."

And thats why we love baseball, there is always hope.

Moores In Town
Nice little profile of John Moores in the UT sports section highlighting his work for the Carter Center. He's also concered the Aztecs will get screwed if the Chargers leave town.

Go Padres

Padre Mike

1. Dave had a meeting with the hitters around the batting cage, according to the NCT. The quip after last nights game: is it too early to have another meeting? Sounds like software development.

2. Petco Curse update- Obviously wearing my underwear backwards did no good at all. The Curse seems stronger then ever. Starting to suspect that the only thing to lift the Curse is a road trip.

3. John Moores apparently visited the dugout after last night's loss. My a visit from the big guy can lift the Curse.
