I don’t understand all of the negativity and nay Sayers about the players the Padres acquired via trade the past weeks: Kemp, Myers, Upton, and Norris. The main complaints that I hear are “They lost defense, they will get injured, to right handed, etc.” All I know is that the Padres now have three big boppers, three legitimate middle of the order bats that can make Petco look like a little league park.

Many a goalie would have either had to lose track of the ball to return to position or have taken a bad angle or gone to the wrong spot while watching the ball, or simply stumbled and left the net wide open.
“It said, ‘I want to do the kind of medicine where I get to know people through generations. If someone breaks their arm I might be the one to put the cast on it, if they have a baby I might be the one to deliver it and if they’re dying I might be the one holding their hand,” she recites. “Going into it, that was always what I wanted to do and I think obstetrics is just part of that.”.
