August 1st Lineup…

Happy August baseball fans! The Friars begin the second half of the home stand tonight against the Braves. Padres manager Bud Black posted an interesting lineup for tonight’s series opener. Yangervis Solarte makes his first start in left field and Abraham Almonte makes his debut for the Padres in center field.

Here is today’s full lineup:

8-1 lineup

From the Farm, 7/30/14: Needy, 2 Mission Relievers Combine on No-Hitter


Seriously, can the Padres just fire Bud Black already. Not sure what he has against lefties hitting lefties but it’s ridiculous. He benched Rizzo vs lefties and rizzo is hitting .300 against then this year. We lost a potentially great first baseman because Bud Black told him he was going to sit any time a LHP was in the game. The pads are now paying Seth smith decent money to not play. Just let the starters play and quit with the musical lineup already. Geez. He’s getting to the point where he’s more frustrating to watch than Norv Turner was.
