Padres Morning Dump

The Cardinals are in the market for pitching, with the bullpens in San Diego and Minnesota being two possible places to look.

While most other clubs drafted pitchers in the first round of this year’s 2011 First Year Player Draft, the San Diego Padres went out on a bit of a limb and chose position player Cory Spangenberg. Just a few weeks into his professional career, the second baseman already looks like a very sound investment.
