Jesus Guzman's minors slash line over 8 seasons: .305 / .373 / .480
I'm definitely keeping an eye on him in my leagues but I don't see him as an immediate add yet. That said, I like him coming off the bench when the Friars are away from PetCo - he's got some good power and doesn't K too much.
sdut: Padres prospect Donavan Tate has been suspended 50 games following his second positive drug test. The commissioner's office announced the penalty Tuesday. He will be given credit for 25 games already served while undergoing counseling for substance abuse. The rest of the suspension begins immediately.

sdutThe Padres have changed clothes more often than a snake. They’re like their roster and starting lineups. Never the same. Even the Swinging Friar, which is a damn nice symbol (if your team name must be the Padres), gets makeovers. Where else can you go with a Padre? Brand the likeness of Antonio Cromartie? They can’t settle on anything. I look at the Yankees, Cardinals, Red Sox, even the Dodgers. There is history. We know who they are. The Padres are vanilla. Vapid. Vacuous. Vexing.
At least they changed their road uniforms back to gray from sand, which one club employee describes as “our California Highway Patrol unis.” But the road logo “San Diego” is uninspired and not good at all. Their homies? Blah. They never, ever should wear their dark blue tops. They’re batting practice jerseys. The best thing they put on now are the Sunday-go-to-meeting Marine camouflage jerseys and caps, which not only are distinctive and appropriate in this town, but if the lighting’s right, you can’t see them swing and miss with runners in scoring position. Simply put, they must go. They must be done right and changed for good and left alone.
