If you happen to be a washed up starting pitcher in search of a job, have your agent give San Diego Padres GM Josh Byrnes a call. There is a 94% chance they'll find you work. Not able to cut it in Minnesota, Jason Marquis and his 8.47 ERA are not only headed to Petco, but starting tomorrow against San Francisco. He replaces Edinson Volquez who has been all over the place of late (15 walks last four starts). We understand the Padres are in a tough spot with Tim Stauffer, Corey Luebke, and Dustin Moseley on the DL. But Marquis? This after they rented Jeff Suppan for six starts (5.28 ERA). There are even rumblings of the Padres calling up Kip Wells! Don't forget, the Padres have been starting retread Eric Stults and just picked up Russ Ohlendorf from Triple-A Pawtucket (Boston). Add in Anthony Bass looking worn out already (15 ERs last three starts) and this is without question the worst starting staff in baseball.
