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 game 1 of the series in Arizona by a score of 6-1 bringing their record to 59-72, 18 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers. The final score doesn’t look that good but the game was not without intrigue: Reymond Fuentes made his major league debut in center field. In his first at-bat he hit a hard chopper and showed off his legs, nearly beating it out. I missed the rest of his at-bats though because I had to watch the most recent episode of Breaking Bad which, incidentally, blew my mind. As I switched back to the game and saw the scoreline at 6-1 in the 7th inning, I didn’t feel so bad – and then I turned on Dexter. I’m a terrible fan.

“I was definitely struggling with my command early,” Ross said. “I wasn’t as sharp with the fastball. That is something I need to work on.” [Brock]
Decker out, KOTSAY STAYS. Makes sense.

So that's what a real centerfielder looks like.

I bet half of @Dbacks fans are like, "Yeah! Go, go Goldy!" and the other half are all, "Fuck you. It's Schmidty."
