DateQuestionAnswer
2012-12-28 13:00:00 (link to chat)Is the Padres magic in building pens of amazing potency likely to continue as they move the fences in? Could we see monsters out there like Cashner and eventually Quackenbush setting up STreet in 2013?
(J.A. from MN)
This is a fascinating question and a real concern. The Padres have done well building cheap bullpens and filling in the back of their rotations with guys who might not have succeeded in other venues. Those days may be gone. Kevin Quackenbush and Matthew Stites are two guys who looked good in the AFL and could force their way into the picture before long. I have no idea what's up with Cashner other than the fact that he can't stay healthy. He could be a stud starter, a stud closer, or absolutely nothing. (Geoff Young)
