• Seriously, 4 Errors? It's Like Watching Someone Else's Kid Play Little League...

• This Current Rotation...Not Quite As Fun To Watch, Right?

• Do You Buy The Strasburg's Worried About The Front Office Story?

• Can We Please Just Make Rizzo Permanent And Hire Tony Gwynn As The New Manager?

Origin Story - Cleveland Indians' 1st Round pick, 35th overall in 2001. 12/13/08 - Signed Minor League deal with Washington.

• The San Diego Padres selected Tim Stauffer with their 1st Round pick, 4th overall in 2003. The Montreal Expos' 1st Round pick that year, 15 players later, was the Flat-Brimmed Closer Chad Cordero. Cordero made his MLB debut that year and was in the major leagues full-time over the next five years until he suffered a torn labrum at some point in 2008 and was unceremoniously dumped (non-tendered) by the Nationals. Stauffer started at A-ball in the Padres' system in 2004 and quickly jumped Triple-A in his first full season with San Diego, debuting in 2005 and making 14 starts and 1 relief appearance in which he was (3-6) with a 5.33 ERA in 81.0 IP. In 2005, Chad Cordero saved 47 games for the Expos, and posted a (2-4) record with a 1.82 ERA in 74.1 IP. Cordero made 287 appearances from 2004-2007, pitching 305.1 innings in the majors while Stauffer moved up and down between Triple-A and the Majors, making 59 starts at Triple-A and 19 total for the Padres between 2005-2007...before missing all of 2008, after surgery to repair a torn labrum...

• Chad Cordero Update: In the rookie-level Arizona League, Chad Cordero's (0-1) with a 9.00 ERA in 3.0 IP, over which he's allowed 4 hits, 3 ER and 2 walks while striking out 4.
