Your Padres Starting Five

Friday March 26, 2010

Corey Brock of posted on his blog today that the Padres starting five will be, drum roll please -

Chris Young
Jon Garland
Kevin Correia
Clayton Richard
Mat Latos

About Latos, Brock had the following to say, "He's in the rotation, trust me on that".

He also posits that Tim Stauffer will be traded for a mid-level prospect. I for one am hoping he is wrong.

I think that Stauffer can give the Padres the same type of production that we saw from Correia in 2009 for much less money and that Correia will bring much more in trade than Stauffer could.

With Sean Gallagher sitting in the pen and Wade LeBlanc in AAA, the Padres can afford to take a chance on Stauffer and trade Correia while his value is highest.

What do you think the Padres will do?
