My understanding is that the rest of the staff will be arriving shortly .. But until then, I wouldn't look past Lawrence, Peavy and Eaton ... any one of them is capable of dominating the evening, and they will only get better my friend.
Kevin knows we need one Vet. He'll get one, maybe two in the next couple of weeks .. ;-D

as for the lineup ... it may not be done yet ... But ..

1 OF .. ???
2 2B .. Loretta .. RH
3 OF .. Giles .. LH
4 1B .. Nevin .. RH
5 OF .. Klesko .. LH
6 C ... Hernandez .. RH
7 3B .. Burroughs .. LH
8 SS .. Greene .. RH

Not bad .. :-)

or how about ..

1 3B .. Burroughs .. LH ..
2 2B .. Loretta .. RH
3 OF .. Giles .. LH
4 1B .. Nevin .. RH
5 OF .. Klesko .. LH
6 C ... Hernandez .. RH
7 OF .. Nady .. RH / Long .. LH
8 SS .. Greene .. RH

Now, of course they could do this .. :-?

1 2B .. Loretta .. RH
2 3B .. Burroughs .. LH
3 OF .. Giles .. LH
4 1B .. Nevin .. RH
5 OF .. Klesko .. LH
6 C ... Hernandez .. RH
7 OF .. Nady .. RH / Long .. LH
8 SS .. Greene .. RH

or maybe this .... ;-7

1 3B .. Burroughs .. LH
2 2B .. Loretta .. RH
3 OF .. Giles .. LH
4 1B .. Nevin .. RH
5 OF .. Klesko .. LH
6 OF .. Nady .. RH / Long .. LH
7 C ... Hernandez .. RH
8 SS .. Greene .. RH

of course that would bring up this .. :-B

1 2B .. Loretta .. RH
2 3B .. Burroughs .. LH
3 OF .. Giles .. LH
4 1B .. Nevin .. RH
5 OF .. Klesko .. LH
6 OF .. Nady .. RH / Long .. LH
7 C ... Hernandez .. RH
8 SS .. Greene .. RH

some times the teams have a handshake agreement ..

If they decline arbitration, the team can't sign them till the season begins, But in somecase's the team will offer arbitration to the player and the player will decline (the hand shake) so, then they can continue to discuss salary ...

Oh yeah, good ol hand shakes. **COUGH** Friggin' Wells**COUGH**


OMG thats right ...... David Wells ... we'll they say if you are drunk when you make an agreement, you don't have to stick to it.


The Wells can get out of every contract he's every signed. The drunk!

I'd sure throw the third one out there a couple of times and see what it'd do. Table setters followed by power followed by some decent 7-8 batters ;-D
If I were playing third base and my mother were rounding third with the run that was going to beat us, I'd trip her. Oh, I'd pick her up and brush her off and say, 'Sorry, Mom,' but nobody beats me.

San Diego is a team to watch out for next year. They are going to be good. The staff has more experience, the hitting is there and healthy. The Padres should do very well next year. ;-D
