The Padres went 5 and 2 this week and things seem to be finally clicking with Chase Headley and Carlos Quentin at the plate. Tyson Ross was the star on the mound. The trade deadline is Wednesday. WHAT WILL HAPPEN!?!? HAIKU!! Vocal Minority (David) Tyson Ross Cy Young Luke Gregerson go bye bye Might have jumped the gun The Sacrifice Bunt (Melvin) Why’s Street off the block?
