    PEORIA, Ariz. -- A year after the Padres asked Matt Antonelli to switch positions, they have restrained themselves from doing the very same thing again.

    The Padres say they are committed to letting Antonelli, the Padres' first-round pick in the 2006 First-Year Player Draft out of Wake Forest, develop as a second baseman and not ask him to make the move into the outfield.

    What is with our first pick in the draft?? Are we ever going to get an impact player with our first pick???

    Not ready yet: It looks like pitcher Cesar Carrillo -- the Padres' No. 1 pick (18th overall) in 2005 -- won't be ready to assume a spot on a Minor League team next month when the Padres break camp, as the right elbow that needed reconstructive surgery last April still is not completely healed.

    They're No. 1: Pitcher Nick Schmidt, the Padres' No. 1 pick in 2007, will miss the entire 2008 season after having reconstructive surgery on his right elbow in October.

    Schmidt first experienced discomfort after throwing just seven innings for Class A Fort Wayne before being shut down for the season and eventually needing the surgery. Two former No. 1 Draft picks -- Carrillo and converted shortstop Matt Bush (2004) -- have undergone similar surgery.

    and I won't even get started about that Mat Bush dude
