The Padres will be looking at starting pitching at the deadline this year. They won't be the sellers this year, they will be the buyers. The Padres have unexpectedly played fantastic baseball this year and are right in the playoff hunt. According to Jon Heyman of CBS, the Padres will look to acquire starting pitching this year at the deadline. Players such as Ricky Nolasco and Bud Norris have been mentioned, but those aren't exactly new names. The Padres, as Heyman points out, don't have a lot of money to spend, so this could seriously hamper any trades that involve Norris or Nolasco, but according to a report from Bill Center of the San Diego Union-Tribune, there may be a guy that fits the bill. His name is Jake Arrieta, from the Baltimore Orioles. He isn't a No. 1 or 2 guy by any means, but he could fill the back end of the rotation for the Padres. Maybe he could be a long reliever, but that depends on if the Padres trade Edinson Volquez. The best thing for the Padres is that he's low cost. He currently is playing on a three-year deal worth approximately $1,424,000. That fits the Padres price range. Arrieta wouldn't make too much of an impact to the Padres, but could give them more depth at the pitching position. He has a 1-2 record with a 7.23 ERA with a 23/17 K/BB ratio. I don't need to tell you that those numbers aren't good. He would just be a depth kind of guy. He wouldn't really be a guy you rely on too much, but he could eat innings for your team. Every team needs a guy like that. Follow @mlbinjurynews Looking for fantasy baseball advice?

Let’s Take The Whole Day Off

Before we get to the meat of the post, a quick comment about last night.  San Diego tied yesterday’s game in one of the weirdest ways possible – on passed ball, which allowed the runner to score from third.  It immediately reminded me of this game three years ago, when the Padres tied the game – against the Phillies, no less – on a bases loaded BALK.  The Padres eventually...

While You Were Drinking: Game 77 (SD vs. PHI)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. Last night my daughter and I met up with grandpa to catch a good pitcher’s duel and for the most part Eric Stults and Cliff Lee delivered. Unfortunately Lee was better, mowing down the Padres in quick innings of work. With a 3-0 lead...

About Last Night: I went to bed just before the implosion in San Diego

Cliff Lee was masterful last night in San Diego.

With the Phillies up 3-0 entering the bottom of the ninth and it already half past midnight I was growing so tired that I just could not manage to fight...

Here’s a quick update on some rumors from Dodgertown. Jayson Stark says the Dodgers are not actively dangling right fielder Andre Ethier. Don’t buy it.
