I just read the article in the Union Trib about Khalil fracturing his hand. I know that he's frustrated with his hitting, but why did he go out and break his hand? He's getting paid 4.5 mil this year and next and this is what he does? I think what he did was selfish and to make matters worse, we do not have a reliable shortshot to fill the gap. Looks like he's going to miss the rest of the season. Any comments? I really think it was stupidity and his selfishness on his part. Be a man and suck it up. Period.

Perfect timing as Tadahito is about to come back...which means Edgar can move to SS and continue to tear the cover off of the ball.

Go Padres...er, Chargers!

Greene said after the 7-3 defeat to the Diamondbacks that he was in "excruciating pain" after fouling a ball off his shin during the seventh inning.

After the at-bat ended with Greene's 100th strikeout, Greene went to clubhouse tunnel. There, Greene said, his frustration got the best of him and he drove his left hand into a storage chest.


Watching you try to bat, Greene is excruciatingly painful as well.

Bon voyage, Khalil.

The least he can do is sign for his fans. I hope it's not his writing hand! :)

You guys wanted him to show some emotion...

^^ this is true.

I've often heard the argument by fans that Greene doesn't care because he doesn't show emotion on the field, like we're accustomed to seeing (i.e. bat throwing, bat breaking, etc etc). When the guy seemingly reaches his breaking point and does react he gets roasted for it. I'm not defending his actions, I'm just commenting on the reactions of some people that I've already spoken to here at work.

I didn't know this. But am very surprised by it. Never thought in a million year Greene would ever do something like this.
