We accept the fact that we aren't your normal stats-driven baseball blog. But we think you're crazy to tell us who you think we should be. You see us as you want to see us...in the simplest terms and the most convenient definitions. But what we found out is that each one of us is a believer in rainbows...a unicorn artist...a comedian...a writer...a purveyor of dolphin porn...and a Padre fan.

Does that answer your question?

Sincerely yours,

The GLB Club

Pardon the San Diego Padres for screaming at the sight of interleague play. They were swept last weekend by the Angels and outscored 26-7, and have lost 11 consecutive interleague games. They haven't defeated an American League club since June 21, 2008, and are 5-21 in their last 26 interleague games.

However, either the Cardinals must stand accused of making an impulse move predicated on incomplete scouting, or the Padres are liable for failing to disclose what Greene acknowledges to be a pre-existing condition.

But one person close to Greene could see the 29-year-old walking away from the game after this season. "He never liked the limelight,'' that person said. Greene lives on a farm in Clemson, S.C., and is said to enjoy the quiet life.

Cardinals Weigh Move With Greene

"Greene met with La Russa shortly before today’s game and the club is believed to be considering a roster move with their Opening Day cleanup hitter. Greene admits to feeling extreme pressure this season and, according to sources, is dealing with anxiety-related issues. The club has discussed the possibility of approaching Greene about a stint on the disabled list as he seeks treatment for the condition."

Probably not the impact move fans are looking for, but the Marlins added former Padres right-hander Clay Hensley to the Triple-A New Orleans rotation this week.

"The deal was made first and then the player was asked if he was interested, instead of the other way around," Axelrod said. "I don't think he looks bad, because the White Sox handled this very professionally. But the entire process was unfair."

Kouz to the Cubs?

Forget Jake Peavy; the Cubs might make better use of San Diego third baseman Kevin Kouzmanoff, a player the Padres have indicated a willingness to move.

Mets fan gets HER hand stuck in a Citi Field sh**ter trying to retrieve her gold tooth.

The woman did not recover her tooth, but was plenty relieved just to leave the bathroom.

One more reason why the Dodgers suck.

+

Mario Lopez looked like a complete fairy when he threw out the first pitch at last nights Dodgers game, but it wasn’t his fault because they had him stand so far away. The pitchers mound is roughly 60 feet away, and Mario was about 10 feet in front of that. In Little League the mound is 49 feet away, so Mario was even further than those professionally trained 8-year-olds.

And just like clockwork, there are signs that the Jake Peavy-Atlanta talks figure to be back on. There is pressure on both sides to complete the talks that basically got to the 1½-yard line, and to finish them ASAP. For the Padres, it's obvious that there is a push to lower the payroll dramatically, and they need to move Peavy's contract and get decent return, even if it's 80 to 90 cents on the dollar.
