A terrible thing happened to San Diego Padres catcher Nick Hundley on Thursday. The young backstop's vision was compromised after he lost a much-needed contact lens.Anyone who has ever lost a contact knows the immediate struggle and panic that ensues in the pursuit to relocate it.

The story of the day was how Jedd Gyorko sent a ball over the left field fence for a grand slam in his first at bat. No doubt that eyes will be on him all spring as he looks to crack the roster and become the starting second baseman. The Padres and Mariners are at...
