Padres, Rain, and Christmas

There is not much going on in baseball right now. Well, the Yankees signed A.J. Burnett, I guess that’s big news. The Padres non-tendered Clay Hensley and Charlie Haegar recently. Now, Haegar I can understand. He is a knuckleballer, and not too good at it. He lost at least 3 games for us, I’d say. It was kind of sick. But Clay Hensley is a bit of a head-scratcher. Clay is a fairly good pitcher, and he’s been with the Padres for quite a while. But he has been riddled with injuries for the past few years. It’s kind of sad, because he is a great guy, but obviously the Padres don’t have him in their plans.

Speaking of plans, let’s take a look at the Padres rotation for 2009. We will (hopefully) have Jake Peavy, Chris Young, and Cha Sueng Baek. From what I’ve heard, the other two spots will be filled by young guys who pitched with us in ’08, like Josh Geer. I am guessing that the other spot will be filled by a young pitcher. We’ll probably get to look at a lot of guys in Spring Training. Wade LeBlanc and Chad Reinike might get some looks, but it’s very likely that we will get another starter sometime this offseason.

The weather is so beautiful here in San Diego. It is raining like crazy, and it’s supposed to rain all day. I absolutely love the rain. It’s like amazing.

Well, it’s certainly starting to feel like Christmas, even in San Diego. I have three Christmas parties this week…
