Pelzer is either going to be a deadly closer or Edwin Jackson. He has two top pitches and nothing else. I read somewhere ages ago that BOTH his slider and fastball were rated the best in the Padres organisation.

It sounds like the Padres plan on using Tejada in a platoon role, 3B/SS. Apparently Adrian Gonzalez lobbied heavily for the Padres to pick him up, so maybe Miguel will see some sort of rebirth with all the love he is being shown.
