While You Were Drinking: Game 109 (SD vs CIN)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking.

The Padres lost 4-1 yesterday. Eric Stults did not look particularly good. Homer Bailey did, however.

The Padres are off today, then welcome the New York Yankees to Petco Park for the first time ever. As of right now, Andrew Cashner faces C.C. Sabathia on Friday, Tyson Ross squares off against Ivan Nova on Saturday and newcomer Ian Kennedy takes the hill versus Phil Hughes on Sunday.

In other news, the Padres completed a trade deadline deal with the Arizona Diamondbacks for Ian Kennedy. The Diamondbacks get Joe Thatcher, AA pitcher Matt Stites, and “a 2014 Competitive Balance Round B Draft pick,” whatever that is.

(You can read about the trade in more detail from Vocal Minority here. And Avenging Jack Murphy wrote an open letter to Kennedy today.)

Also, Everth Cabrera may finally be getting suspended for his involvement with Biogenesis. Reports having the hammer coming down as early as Friday Saturday Monday. Left Coast Bias will have a unique perspective as an attorney on this issue coming very soon.

Quote

“We had that long stretch of lots of losing there before the All-Star break. So to come out in the second half and play the way we have, it’s just definitely a step in the right direction.”
Eric Stults (Collier)

 

“It’s a tough situation for me and the organization, too, you know, for the Padres and my teammates. The only thing I can say is the things happening are not going to stop my career and my motivation for being a better player.”
Everth Cabrera, on the possible upcoming suspension (Wilson)

Chase Headley‘s RBI double in the 9th inning scored Cabrera for the lone Padres run.

  • The rally unicorn ate the rally bananas and then pooped the rally monkey. It’s what must happen to take 2 out of 3 from “Cincinata” or umm, something like that. On to the next series! May the disparaging remarks about New York and Yankees fan begin! #beatNY Happy #IPAday
