  1. YAYAYAYAYAYAYAY finally some runs. Be nice if they could spread them out, but I guess good teams score runs in bunches so…not that I’m saying the Padres are good. But they’re better than they’ve been playing and this is a happy sign.

  2. How often do you see the same 3 consecutive batters (Hawpe, Denorfia, Bartlett) get a hit twice in one inning? And both of Bartlett’s hits drove in the same player, Hawpe. Wow.

  3. The story kind of seemed liked an extraordinarily big waste of time.

  4. 6% of the total runs scored for the season!!! That’s pretty incredible.

  5. I guess that’s what happens when you have 8 shutouts in 37 games. I was pretty amazed by that.

  6. One potential problem with Roenicke’s process is that before the game he said that Loe would be unavailable because of how much he had pitched recently. Then Loe convinced him that he was OK to pitch. Maybe fatigue didn’t play into it but it seems like if you’re sure before the game that a guy isn’t going to pitch you should be sure during the game too.

  7. Now that you mention it, his sinker velocity was down slightly from the night before. Not sure we can say that was the cause of his ineffectiveness, but it would help explain and would definitely change the process.

  8. The Padres had 18 singles in that game. So many ground balls got through the infield for both teams in the series and a lot of batting lines were distorted.

  9. about as often as Hawpe gets a hit off a left handed pitcher.

  11. The Padres have been an offensive disappointment all season and, this inning and game notwithstanding, the failure of the organization to respond to the dearth of runs has been disheartening. There is not a player on the roster, let alone playing in the game, that demands any significant concern from the opponent’s pitching staff. Other teams must love playing these Padres: pitchers’ preparational meetings don’t get any shorter than this!

    In order to maintain fan interest, the organization is going to have to curtail the playing time of tired, ineffective veterans (Ludwick, Hawpe, Cantu) and had-enough-time-to-know-they’re-not-going-to-make-it projects (Venable) in favor of new, young players who can start to gain MLB experience so that maybe by 2013, 2014 when the club might again be in a positiion to succeed they will have accumulated 1000 or so ABs.

    These current Padres aren’t just losing, they’re losing in tedious, hard-to-watch ways.
