Fantasy Game Of The Night: St. Louis Cardinals at San Diego Padres

This game isn't intersting because of the resurgent Cardinals and Ryan Ludwick, whose 12 HRs leads the team. This game is interesting because Padres GM Kevin Towers let loose to the press with some fighting words for his 14-games-under-.500 and worst-record-in-baseball team.

As quoted from the San Diego Union-Tribune :

"We've got some hungry players down below looking for the opportunity. If we make changes, they will be wholesale ... as a group. We're in a rut. There's not one player in the system who is going to turn us around. I'm still holding out hope, but my patience is running thin. That's pretty clear."

Most fantasy players are aware of LF Chase Headley at AAA, and he will certainly be part of the "wholesale" changes. A couple others could be 2B Matt Antonelli whose AAA slash stat line of 193/325/319 is completely umipressive and C Nick Hundley who also remains unimpressive at 202/276/375.

Geez, there doesn't really look like reinforcements are coming from AAA, does it? But given the veterans with the Padres aren't doing well anyhow, maybe it doesn't matter. The question is whether the Padres pick-up the pace or if Kevin Towers uses the last two-thirds of 2008 to determine who can help in 2009.
