Giles is staying!
Today Brian Giles vetoed his potential trade to the Red Sox . He says he wants to keep his commitment to the Padres. He does have an option for 2009, and he says he wants to play 2-3 more years, preferably in San Diego. I am glad that Giles is staying, but I was kind of hoping for an exciting trade. We fans have nothing to talk about but how badly the Padres are playing, and it would be really nice to have a new player to talk about. The Padres have been really disappointing in the market. They have a pathetic team, but they don’t really try to fix it. I understand that they are looking to the future, but they need to keep their fans. Who knows? They are probably preparing a huge trade and we’ll have a ton to talk about. But I wouldn’t count on it. Of course, I will always be a fan. It’s just the same old story, week after week. We need something new. Josh Bard hurt himself during BP. Not again!!
Today’s game is not looking good. We have already had a 53-minute rain delay. But it’s Colorado. Go Padres!
