PDA

View Full Version : Jimenez a clubhouse cancer?

It has been an injury-racked season for the Padres, who going into the weekend had scored one or no runs in 25 percent of their games. Plus, their Double-A and Triple-A teams are at the bottom of the Texas League and Pacific Coast League in runs scored. But with Phil Nevin coming back, Sean Burroughs in Portland learning to play second base and Xavier Nady on the horizon, Kevin Towers has reason to believe that the Pads are close to having a potent offensive team to take into their new park in 2004.


"We're optimistic that Sean can play second," says Towers. "We're leaving him there for six weeks. If it works, then with Ryan Klesko and Nevin at the corners, Burroughs at second and Mark Kotsay and Nady in the outfield, we have the makings of a pretty darned good offense." Burroughs would be the 11th regular second baseman in San Diego since Bret Boone was allowed to walk, but they had to move D'Angelo Jimenez for clubhouse purposes

For the love of God, why don't they bring up Crede, move Valentin to shortstop, and trade Royce Clayton for an old fungo bat? (Do they still make fungo bats?)

Bobby Higginson is going to make $11.85 million next year? It really is out of control.
