    It makes it hard to be a Padres fan.......like I would EVER give up on my Padres, but for F***S sake, could we win one every now and then. They seemed to get off to a decent start.........and they freakin' implode ! I agree.....who knew things were this bad !!! :icon_shrug::icon_shrug:

    yeah i've just stopped watching padre games, i really can not take it anymore and i just assume regardless of what happens, how much the Pads are ahead, I just expect them to lose.

    Not really surprising.

    The old players quickly got old, the bullpen sucks ***, Greene is nothing like last season and we lost 2 key bats (Cameron and Bradley).


    But really it's the bullpen that has killed us. We went from having one of the better bullpens to one of the worst.

    If you have great pitching you can survive having bad hitting, but you can't have bad pitching and bad hitting and expect to win.

    The good news is we have solid building blocks, but I think it could take us at least 2010 before the team is competitive, but it really depends on the moves the team makes.

    We need to deal Maddux, Wolf, and Giles. Think about dealing Bell and Greene because I don't see them helping us out too much. I'd also looking into dealing Kouz to allow Headley to play at 3rd where he belongs.

    Really there are only 3 guys I wouldn't deal, Adrian, Peavy and Chase anyone else could go for the right deal imo.

    I agree with a lot of what you're saying except for trading Kooz.

    yeah, but we won't.

    and then cry that we are a small market team that can't afford to sign large contracts

    I like Kooz but he isn't a particularly good 3rd baseman and that forces the slow of foot Headley into the outfield where he also isn't particularly good. If you could package Kooz and a pitcher and get a center fielder we could move Hairston/Gerut to left where they are a better fit, plug the new center fielder in and move Headley back to 3rd. This would strengthen the team defensively at 3 positions.

    I know and that makes watching this season even more frustrating.

    defense wise i'm not that unhappy with hairston/gerut but both are nothing more then 4th/5th outfielders.
