Padres Have 99 Problems

…and Second Base Is Probably Going to Be One

But, sometimes, there are nice problems to have.

Jedd Gyorko, rookie sensation, was having a pretty good season. Rookie of the Year worthy if he kept up the pace.

Gyorko crushes ball into the stands and makes outstanding plays at second base. And that’s just plenty for me.

Unfortunately, Gyorko just went on the disabled list. He’s only supposed to be out for a couple of weeks, but still. It’s a blow, however slight.

Enter Logan Forsythe. Back off of the disabled list to make his 2013 debut.

On June 5th of last season, Forsythe crushed a walk off home run in the 9th inning against the hated Giants.

Monday, he crushed another one. And, he is a pretty good at second base, as well.

I know. It’s way to early to be thinking of a second base controversy. But, I just find it rather interesting to think about.

Now, a video from Jay Z…

See? Even Jay Z wants the Padres to bring back the brown. But that’s just one of the 98 other problems the Padres have.
