Isn’t it ironic that Padilla’s leg was shot in the off season and now his arm is shot?
So, who takes his place?
- Ramon Ortiz – 2-1
- Scott Elbert – 10-1
- Josh Lindblom – 20-1
- Carlos Monasterios – 28-1
- Josh Towers 100-1
- Sandy Koufax – 100,000,000,000 – 1
There you have it. I’m pretty sure Koufax won’t be getting the ball.
RANTS & RAVES
- Russ Martin has not hit well with RISP and whenever he doesn’t throw out a runner, someone points it out, but how about the fact that he has been driving the ball to the opposite field, is hitting over .300 and how about his play at the plate on I-Rod to save the game? How come we only hear the bad?
- Matt Kemp is a little Bigger and Stronger… and a little slower. Note: this means NO GOLD GLOVE AND FEWER STOLEN BASES. I’m just sayin’.
Jake Peavy who has a 7.66 ERA and walked 7 batters in his last start (sound like some we know) says that he is not injured and that his poor showing is the result of trying to smooth out his delivery and improve his mechanics. He says “When I’m right I … do things that maybe aren’t mechanically perfect.” The pitching coach said “Maybe we were trying to make him into something he wasn’t.”
Could the same be said for Billingsley?
