Girardeau Released/Org Preview

This past week, Clark Girardeau was released by the Padres. Clark was 3-9 with a 7.13 ERA last year with Lake Elsinore, after a decent 2004. I recently talked to Clark at the University of South Alabama Alumni Game. He told me about the treatment he has had to undergo to rehab his arm. Clark, a graduate of Mobile's Murphy High School, is a classy kind of guy. I'd like to wish him all the best in the future. has released it's 2006 Padres Organizational Preview. You can find it here. Of course, Cesar Carrillo is one of their top five players in the system. If you have not had a chance to go out to the Hank and see him yet, you must! Carrillo has electric stuff; I was at his AA debut and he was sick (In a good way). He'll be with the Pads by midseason no doubt. Don't pass up the opportunity to see such a special player. More on him and other prospects that will be with the BayBears this year in the season preview coming soon....

Later this week, I will be in Disney World. Yes, I will be going to a Spring Training game. Braves vs Mets on Wednesday.

13 days until BayBears Opening Night....
