    Lackey threw a season-high 8 1/3 innings in his last outing and secured his 12th consecutive quality start, two shy of his career high. This will be his first career start at Petco Park and his fourth career outing vs. the Padres.

    August hasn't been kind to Cashner, who has a 4.67 ERA in his first three starts of the month. Opponents are hitting .333 against him in those starts. He got a no-decision against the Cardinals in July, allowing one run over six innings.

    Martinez will have a second shot at win No. 13. The Cardinals are 18-4 in his starts this season. One of those wins came earlier this season against the Padres, against whom Martinez got a no-decision after allowing one run over 6 2/3 innings.

    After a rough start to 2015, Kennedy has been very good. Since June 2, a span of 14 starts, Kennedy has a 2.82 ERA. He's allowed more than three runs once in that stretch. He lost to the Cardinals on July 5, allowing three runs in six innings.

    Rea won his second second career game on Monday vs. the Braves, allowing two earned runs on five hits with one walk and four strikeouts over 5 2/3 innings to become the seventh pitcher in club history to win his first two big league starts.

    The guy has been run down. He's played in 118 of 121 games



    This is managements fault. Wong has been run now by playing every single day because the back up is so awful that they can't sit him or Peralta a day without having to play kozma



    I strongly hate Pete Kozma, inexcusable he's in majors

    I agree.. I can't believe we can't find a middle infielder better than Kozma..

    The bad part is we have ones better than Kozma. Greg Garcia has had a great year and yet he sits rotting in AAA most of the season

    I feel embarrassed for Mo every time Moss comes to the plate.

    So many of you guys are always complaining about Kozma...the same people who have been Bourjos apologists. Give me a break. Kozma is what he has always been, an average defensive back up who every once in a great while will surprise with a clutch base hit.

    He's never pretended to be anything more, yet he was on the team that won in 2011,Helped get the team to the ALCS in '12, and the WS in '13. So at least he doesn't piss down his leg every time he's put under pressure. Bourjos, is lost every time he steps on the field.

    How do you place blame on a player for the recent poor play when that player hasn't even stepped on the field? Moss has made very good contact, nearly every at bat. Wong has been overplayed, and needs a break. Yet you never complain about Bourjos, who gets in every game, only to strike out, run in to an out or not take the extra base when he should.

    I've not said a word about Bourjos since last year. I still firmly believe last year Bourjos should have played more and Jay less. This year I've said since spring Jay and Grichuk should share time in CF and since April I've said Grichuk should be starting in CF.

    I don't see what Bourjos has to do with it though? Bourjos far from gets in every game unless it's to play the last inning or so in CF


    On top of all this though there's two very important points you're missing.


    Bourjos is an elite defender. Bourjos takes away runs with his defense. I'm fine with that as a 5th outfielder, if he's even that high on the roster. If we have an injury he's the 3rd option at the highest


    Kozma is the back up SS/2B who is an average fielder, a god awful hitter. Such an awful hitter in fact that they avoid sitting Peralta or Wong even one game. He's the 2nd option. Which is pathetic.


    Pete Kozma is possibly the most useless player in baseball.


    There's absolutely no excuse for him to be on any major league roster, especially this one. I don't really see how Bourjos is lost on the field. I wouldn't say Kozma is lost, he's just A terrible, terrible baseball player


    As far as Brandon Moss, I didn't say a word about Moss. I've said from the start Mo made an awful deal for Moss but overall Moss is a solid player to have, people would feel very differently on Moss if he was signed as a free agent



    It still doesn't change that the line ups are made to try to avoid using Kozma. Yesterday Carpenter played 2B to avoid using him. So why is he on roster? If you have to avoid using a player ever because he's that bad then He's worthless.


    We aren't talking about a guy who mashes left handed pitching or a guy who can only get left handers out while pitching. We are talking about a guy who can't hit right handed pitching, can't hit left handed pitching and at his very best defensive play he's an average defender who doesn't get on base and hits for no power.


    You wanna know what separates Bourjos and Kozma? Bourjos plays elite defense in prime position and has a career ops 100 points higher than Kozma. That should tell you a lot oh how awful you are when Peter Bourjos hits for a higher average, more power and gets in base more than you


    That and Bourjos is in an unimportant 5th outfielder role. Back up middle infield is actually rather important

    Nice to see Piscotty have another big day.

    If it weren't for Perez he would have 2 multy HR games by now.
    Either way, this kid has made a tremendous impact in our lineup since receiving the call.
    Also has helped ease the temporary loss of Randall Grichuk.
    Keep it up Piscotty! I see big things happening for you in the future.

    I don't know, I am fine with Bourjos not playing when we have Grichuk and Piscotty up. When we had Bourjos losing playing time to a struggling Jay it was hard to take. I definitely think Bourjos can contribute even when he isn't hitting, but I think his bat has more potential than Kozma's has. He struggles for consistent playing time though.

    Kozma being up while Greg Garcia rarely sniffs the minor league roster is also puzzling. I would love to see Kozma succeed, but he hasn't and he isn't. Greg Garcia has earned more of a shot than he has been given. He comes up and hits a really big clutch home run and we send him back down, doesn't seem fair.

    That's on MM. Per usual MM rides guys until their performance craters. With the offense so stagnant it's gonna get worse....
