Man, Spring Training is in the thick of things and the Padres are 2-7. No worries, though. They’ve been playing good ball. Everybody will be ready for Opening Day. I don’t really follow Spring Training games closely, you know what I mean? It just isn’t like the regular season. I don’t know about you guys, but I am already ready for Opening Day.

I’m not yet locked into baseball, though. I’m more into basketball right now. But when Opening Day comes around, I am surely going to be in the baseball and basketball mood.
Matt Antonelli has been a real bright spot for the Padres this Spring. He was a guy who fell off the radar last year, and didn’t hit very well. But now, he’s out of that slump, and could maybe be the Padres future 2nd baseman for years to come.
That’s about all I have for now.
In this guy.
Yep, that’s right. The Padres have had a great off-season so far, and if they could sign this guy, it’d be a steal. There are 3 other teams interested in him, though. The Cardinals are another team that is pursuing Lopez. Sure, Eck is a good player, but if we could get Felipe, it would be a huge improvement and would make the Padres lineup SO much stronger.
PITCHERS AND CATCHERS FOR THE PADRES REPORT TOMORROW!!!!!!!!!!!!! I am soooooo excited!!!!!! I really can’t wait for Spring Training for a preview of what the 2010 season may be like.
