Heath Bell's Trade Value

Don't be fooled-- this post literally says nothing about what Heath's trade value might be.

7. PADRES They recognized now was the time to maximize Gonzalez’s value and deepened their farm system in a deal with Boston. The additions of Brad Hawpe, Jorge Cantu, Orlando Hudson and Bartlett should help some with the loss of Gonzalez; and so would Cameron Maybin if he could honor his talent in a way he did not in Florida. Aaron Harang can be reborn in big Petco Park.

Casey Kelly wonders if there are, in fact, women in San Diego. I sure hope this idiot pitches well.

San Diego has given Boston Ted Williams and Adrian Gonzalez. Boston gave San Diego Matt Antonelli.

Jake Peavy's a tough guy, but what were the White Sox thinking when he threw 112 pitches in a minor-league game against the Reds on Saturday? Nobody's going to throw more pitches in a start this spring. You can go ahead and give him the trophy. Peavy apparently wanted the work, but someone who saw the outing said that he seemed to grow frustrated as the Reds' Triple-A team banged him around for seven runs on 12 hits. His fastball was parked in the low-90s and he seemed to have to trick hitters to put them away. Veterans don't worry too much about the results this time of the season, but the numbers say Peavy has been hittable all spring -- 15 hits, eight runs in 11 innings in 'A' games. Pitchers normally like to coast through their final starts of the spring, but Peavy might need to get some results the next time out for his own frame of mind when he makes his 2010 debut April 7 against Cleveland. Your morning Phil: Chapman, Peavy, Santos

Not a Rookie: Mat Latos

+

John Sickels on Latos. There are two worries with Latos: his makeup, and his health. Latos has an, um, unusual personality. The positive spin is that he's a free-spirit. The negative spin is best expressed by this quote from the 2009 Baseball America Prospect Handbook: "He tends to reject structure, lacks a commitment to improve and rubs teammates the wrong way with his flippant attitude." Descriptions I heard from informed observers in 2008 ranged from "he's just a different guy" to "what a jackass." ----- In any event, if Latos does stay healthy, I think he has the natural ability to be a number one or number two starter. If he'd come in under the 50-inning limit, I'd rate him as a Grade A- prospect and would have put him at number four on my Top 50 pitcher's list.

Gartrell Johnson may start Sunday

+

The Giants could be digging deep into their depth chart for their season finale in Minnesota. Brandon Jacobs has been sent to injured reserve, and Ahmad Bradshaw may not play either. As mentioned in one-liners today, Bradshaw may have a broken bone on both of his feet. The New York Daily News does not expect Bradshaw to play. And if he does, look for him to give way to Gartrell Johnson and Danny Ware before long. It was a positive season for Bradshaw overall. There are still concerns that he can't hold up to the workload the Giants want, but Bradshaw has only missed one game. Despite playing hurt, he's averaged 4.9 yards per carry on 156 totes. He scored seven times and needs 61 yards from scrimmage to reach 1,000 for the season. Bradshaw was really the best part of the Giants rushing game; Jacobs and the offensive line declined.

Factoid of the Week That May Interest Only Me The Chargers' director of player personnel in 1998 was Billy Devaney, and he was part of the group that scouted and drafted the ill-fated Ryan Leaf number two overall for San Diego. Devaney is now the general manager of the Rams. Last spring he drafted quarterback Keith Null from West Texas A&M in the sixth round. Because of injuries to Marc Bulger and Kyle Boller, Null started his first NFL game Sunday at Tennessee. Null's position coach at West Texas A&M: Ryan Leaf. Last spring, Devaney, who will be forever linked with Leaf, left the disastrously failed quarterback a voice message saying, "You did a great job with Keith Null.'' Null probably wishes he could void his first NFL start. Five interceptions, lots of 10-inch-gain dump-offs. MMQB

[Hoyer] put himself "head and shoulders" above the other GM candidates, Moorad said, by compiling a detailed analysis of the Padres baseball talent, including a breakdown of how he envisioned the front office working. He needed a binder for the treatise, which runs some 50 pages.
