    Bard lands on 15-day disabled list:tdown:

    SAN DIEGO -- When the Padres open a three-game series against the Dodgers on Friday they'll be without starting catcher Josh Bard.

    Bard was placed on the 15-day disabled list on Thursday, a day after he strained his left groin advancing to second base after an RBI single in Wednesday's 4-0 victory over the Giants at PETCO Park.
    The Padres also announced on Thursday that they have purchased the contract of catcher Pete Laforest from Triple-A Portland.
    With Bard injured, Rob Bowen takes over the starting catching duties.
    The injury to Bard is a blow to the Padres both offensively and defensively. Bard was hitting .286 with two doubles, four RBIs and two runs scored in seven games this season for San Diego (6-3).
    The switch-hitter tied a franchise record for hits in a season opener on April 3 in San Francisco when he had four hits. Laforest, 29, was hitting .111 for Portland with a home run and two RBIs in five games for the Beavers.
    __________________________________
    Pete was a stud-muffin hitter at ST. Seems he hasnt kept hot since going to Portland. Now he has a ticket to LA.

    Unfortunately, Rob is not good at blocking the plate, whether on a passed ball or someone charging in from third. I just hope these things dont happen.:no:

    Already on the DL:

    Scott Cassidy, Relief Pitcher, 3-23-07; 15-day; strained right knee.

    Although since our bullpen has a perfect 0.00 so far, this doesnt bother me.

    Bard going on the DL definitely does.:tdown:
