Baek not impressive

Just when you thought Cha Seung Baek had the #3 rotation spot sowed up, he didn't exactly impress against the Mariners yesterday afternoon.

The Padres had built an early 5-0 lead after just 1 inning, but Baek gave that all back and then some, giving up six runs on eight hits over just 4 1/3 innings, striking out six. It just leads to more concern for this Padres team, not only does Baek look shaky, but Bud Black, Kevin Towers and the rest of the front office haven't decided who the #5 starter is going to be.

The one thing this team doesn't want to get themselves into is a starter by committee to open the season, going with a new guy every time the #5 spot in the rotation comes up. I have an idea though....HEY GREG MADDUX! FEEL LIKE COMING OUT OF RETIREMENT? PLEASE!?
