Thursday a.m. things

This roadtrip was certainly a buzzkill. Losing 8 of 9, even when the games don't really mean anything, sucks.

The story from yesterday seems to be the ongoing Vicente Padilla saga. Evan Grant talks about Padilla's abandoning his fastball yesterday and going with the slow breaking balls, something that Ron Washington, Mark Connor, and Jarrod Saltalamacchia (the catcher last night) couldn't explain. Anthony Andro's S-T story echoes those same things.

I'm pretty beaten down by Padilla right now. I was in favor of signing him, thought he got a bad rap, but his 2007 season has sucked.

Andro also has a story up about Torii Hunter being interested in playing for the Rangers.
