Padres lose again...

Once again the Padres pitching staff does not do the job. Scott Hairston tried his best hitting the three-run shot to put the Padres up 6-5 but the lead was short-lived. Leave it to a Chris Iannetta grand slam off of Cla Meredith to be the deciding blow to win it for the Rockies, 9-6. Bud Black just does not have the pieces in the bullpen or in the everyday lineup to make a run in the NL West this year. I truly believe that trading away Jake Peavy before the trade deadline will give the Padres much needed help for the future. I emphasize trading Peavy this year because his contract is very affordable for many clubs and I believe that he will have elbow issues later in his career similar to Mike Hampton of the Astros. I certainly do not wish that for Jake but I believe his delivery will catch up to him sooner or later. Lets get the most from Jake this year before he walks next year and leaves the Padres with the cupboards bare.
