Padres making more desperation moves

In case you missed it, here are press releases from the Padres over the past 24 hours.

With five straight losses and the worst record in Major League Baseball, there is surely more to come:

The San Diego Padres today purchased the contract of catcher Luke Carlin from Triple-A Portland and optioned catcher Colt Morton to Double-A San Antonio. Executive Vice President/General Manager Kevin Towers made the announcement.

The San Diego Padres today recalled outfielder Jody Gerut from Triple-A Portland and requested unconditional release waivers on outfielder Jim Edmonds. Executive Vice President/General Manager Kevin Towers made the announcement.

The San Diego Padres announced today that they have claimed left-handed pitcher Sean Henn off waivers from the New York Yankees. Executive Vice President/General Manager Kevin Towers made the announcement.

Sean Henn is not to be confused with Sean Penn; Madonna’s ex.

With the way the Padres are going, maybe they should sign Sean Penn for some publicity. (And maybe bring up George Carlin instead of Luke!)

It sounds like the Padres have been reading a certain blog that advised that they need to get rid of some guys like Edmonds ,etc. The only problem is you can't get rid of almost the whole team.
