Padres general manager Jed Hoyer did a radio interview with XX-1090 in San Diego yesterday and had an interesting response to a direct question about whether he’s going to trade closer Heath Bell, saying: “At this point right now, I’m not certain.”

San Diego will hand the ball to Dustin Moseley (2-8, 3.21), who is winless in his last five starts, all Padres losses. He surrendered four runs and struck out a career-high nine in 7 1-3 innings of a 6-5, 14-inning loss to the Giants on July 6.

If there was ever a time for the Arizona Diamondbacks to listen to their fans, it should be now.  Publicly they can’t talk about it, but secretly the Dbacks have to be considering a move to go after San Diego Padres closer Heath Bell, right?  I mean, how can they at least not consider it?

Cory Spangenberg, Padres: Spangenberg is just 25 games into his pro career, but the 6-0, 185-pound prospect is showing why San Diego selected him 10th overall in June’s MLB draft. Spangenberg wasted no time signing his entry-level contract and is wasting no time becoming one of the Padres’ top prospects. He is already batting .384 with one homer, 10 doubles, 20 RBI and 10 stolen bases at short-season (Class A) Eugene. The Padres viewed the left-handed hitting Spangenberg as one of the top hitters in the draft, so this isn’t a surprise. They did say, however, if he makes a smooth transition to second base, then the 20-year-old prospect has a chance to move quickly through the minors.

San Diego’s Heath Bell wouldn’t replace Neftali Feliz as the closer, but that wouldn’t be a problem for him.

I asked Tony Gwynn what he thinks the second half of the season has in store for the Padres.  What problems do they need to remedy?  Is it realistic to think that they still have a chance to get back in the race or is it too late?
