Jim Presley isn't going to pretend he likes what is happening. He simply smiles, keeps his mouth shut and waits to see what will transpire. When Presley walked into the Padre clubhouse Saturday and saw third baseman Scott Coolbaugh on the other side of the room, he knew exactly what it meant. He was out of the starting lineup again. This time, it might be for good. Presley, who opened the season as the Padres' starting third baseman, has been waiting for the phone to ring.

Winning can be a pain Six of the seven teams that began the weekend with at least a share of the lead in their divisions have dealt with significant injuries, with only the Arizona Diamondbacks remaining relatively healthy. Philadelphia started the season without Chase Utley, is still missing closer Brad Lidge and Friday put Roy Oswalt on the disabled list. Milwaukee didn't get Zack Greinke until May. Texas was without Josh Hamilton and Nelson Cruz at the same time. Cleveland lost Grady Sizemore, Travis Hafner and Matt LaPorta for varying lengths of time, and Boston has Carl Crawford, Clay Buchholz, Jed Lowrie and Daisuke Matsuzaka on the disabled list.

As a Padre season ticket-holder for some years, I wish to compliment Dave Distel on his recent column on the penurious tactics of Padre managment. Additionally, I read of contradictions in their message to the public. On the one hand we hear of their commitment to field a competitive team. We have recently read that the ownership is the wealthiest in the majors. Then we read of the limitations placed on (General Manager Joe) McIlvaine to acquire talent needed to make the team a bona fide contender.

Third baseman Scott Coolbaugh was supposed to be the answer, certainly, the future. Maybe he didn't have the power of a prototype third baseman, but his defense was an improvement over that of his predecessors. The future changed Tuesday. The Padres traded center fielder Shawn Abner for third baseman Jack Howell of the Angels, and Coolbaugh was told to pack his bags for triple-A Las Vegas. "They gave me so many chances," Coolbaugh said, "I guess they thought I couldn't do the job.

Texas Rangers third baseman Steve Buechele was placed on the 15-day disabled list, effective today, because of continuing soreness in his right wrist, the team announced. The Rangers filled Buechele's roster spot by calling up third baseman Scott Coolbaugh from Triple-A Oklahoma City. Buechele sustained a broken right wrist when he was hit by a pitch from Eric Plunk of the New York Yankees on April 21. He spent more than a month on the disabled list and was reactivated May 25.

Scott Coolbaugh and Mike Patrick hit run-scoring doubles in the 10th inning, and Curt Krippner pitched three innings of shutout relief Wednesday night as top-ranked Texas avoided elimination in the College World Series with a 6-4 victory over Florida State.
