Looking Ahead: The One-Legged Fathers

Hello, first place San Diego Padres.

Might as well say that while I can.

Yeah, I realize they're playing well... very well actually. I even know some people that are on the bandwagon and think this team has a leg to stand on in the NL West.

I agree with you, they do have ONE very strong leg (named Adrian Gonzalez) to stand on, but a one-legged man isn't going to win an ass kicking contest... or survive a 162 game marathon for that matter. EVEN if all the other runners give him a one month head start.

By the way... remember when San Diego won 10 in a row last May?

They still finished 20 games back.

Ubaldo Jimenez vs. Kevin Correia

I'll take my chances with Ubaldo here. This is a game the Rockies should have to win. No ifs, and, or buts about that.

My Lineup Card

2B Young
CF Fowler
RF Gonzalez
SS Tulowitzki
1B Helton
C Olivo
3B Stewart
LF Smith
P Jimenez


Padres 3, Rockies 2

Jimenez: 7 IP, 7 H, 3 ER, 0 BB, 6 K

Remind me to never have anyone pitch to Gonzalez... even if it's Ubaldo... and even if it's just a simulation.

Adrian Gonzalez: 3-for-4, 2 HR, 3 RBI

He's a stud.
