In honor of Earth Day today, I decided to recycle* something Dustin did and answer questions via the Twitter machine.

The big difference: I don’t know anything. I’m not a stathead. I don’t analyze every player’s performance. I’m just a fan who knows about as much as you guys. And the questions I
received picked reflect that total lack of knowledge.
Having said that, let’s get it on!
*Did you see what I did there?
@GhostofRAK How would you rank each offseason acquisitions based on 2 weeks of games?
— Marcus (@marcusSDTX) April 21, 2015
SMALL SAMPLE SIZE ALERT!
James Shields – Awesome.
Matt Kemp – Really, really good.
Wil Myers – Outstanding.
Justin Upton – Awesomely good.
Derek Norris – Ridiculously awesome.
Will Middlebrooks – Good.
Craig Kimbrel – Really good.
Clint Barmes – Meh.

I wouldn’t know. I’m a ghost, not an angel. I’m going to assume there are not, because God has probably watched Super Size Me at least once.
Remember, there are no stupid questions, just stupid people.
@GhostofRAK would you eat the moon if it were made of ribs?

I take it back. There are stupid questions.
@GhostofRAK who will be the first offensive player to hit DL?

It’s “Ask The Ghost,” not Ghostradamus. C’mon, man.
If I had to guess, I would say J Upton. He was left out of the lineup on Sunday in Chicago with a quadriceps strain. Granted, it was only one game, but that would be my likely candidate. So far they have looked pretty good [knocks on wood] as far as health goes.
I take it back. It’ll probably end up being Jedd Gyorko, who will come down with some mystery illness and have to spend 15 days on the disabled list and make a couple of rehab appearances. You know, just to make sure he’s healthy. **wink**
I write something for Padres Public just about every week (during the season) and usually on Wednesday morning. Since you’re likely already following me on Twitter, tell your friends, family, and well-wishers to follow me. Give CornfedFriar a follow while you’re at it.
