2012 Padres Finale

The Colorado Rockies and San Diego Padres go at it one last time for 2012 at 2:05 this afternoon at Petco Park in San Diego.  The Rockies send right-hander Alex White (2-8, 5.18) up against another Padres’ rookie, lefty Andrew Werner (2-1, 2.59).  Colorado will look to win just its second series in September, San Diego its fourth.

White will once again be trying to gain better command of his pitches to extend his outing.  He’s made it only 4 innings or less in 8 of his 9 starts since returning from Colorado Springs.  Werner by contrast has pitched 6 in each of his four major league starts of 2012.

Jordan Pacheco is back in the lineup for the Rockies, hitting clean-up and catching.  Andrew Brown is in right-field batting 6th, and Matt McBride is 7th at 1st-base.  Everth Cabrera is back at shortstop for the Padres, leading-off.  Will Venable will be in right-field, Alexi Amarista in left, and John Baker is behind the plate.

The weather will be more “San Diego-like” at Petco.  It’ll be sunny and clear with temperatures hovering around 80°.  Relative humidity will be in the mid-50s and wind will be blowing-out to left at 8 to 9 mph.  TV’s on ROOT with Drew and George.  Jerry and Jack as always are covering on KOA 850 am.

Is this game being played in a ballpark or a library? It’s so quiet you can hear individual fans jeering.

Love the swing for the fences approach with 2 on and no outs in the 9th.

In today’s Post article, BIB GM DOD is quoted as saying that going forward the Rox need to be a more fundamentally sound offensive team that doesn’t rely too much on the HR. This, as he says will lead to more wins on the road. So today in the 9th inn., score tied and runners on first and second and nobody out, MFL Tracy doesn’t force the issue and has Rosario bunt the runners over instead he looks for the… Read more »

See my comment on next thread.Totally agree.Honestly to not bunt them over to set up a ball in play=go ahead run,shows how out of touch with good basic baseball our MFL is.If BIBGMDOD is serious than Tracy will be thrown under the bus when the season ends.You know,fire him and appoint him team president!

Well, DOD has tried and given up on the 4-man rotation twice now. But he’s only tried the “we’ll win with speed and defense” concept once … 2013, the return of the Juan Pierre era!

Ag, I thought that was the Tom Goodwin era.

I think you’re right. Pitching and defense. Not that there’s anything wrong with pitching and defense, or with hitters not always trying to hit the ball out of the park, or any of that. It’s just that all of these concepts mean nothing if you don’t draft, sign (out of Latin America and as free agents), and develop better talent. When you do that you don’t have to worry about telling a Vlad Guerrero to stop being such a free… Read more »
