Segio Romo met the President the other day. He was impressed:
“He’s a cool cat. He was more human than I thought he would be. I was definitely surprised how normal the president of the United States is. He wasn’t as tall as I thought he’d be, as a basketball-fanatic type of guy. But he’s still taller than I am.”
As soon as Romo said that, Luke Scott offered the official response from the opposition, saying “he is not a cool cat, but a mangy dog, and he is not human or normal at all. He is as alien as a Tralfamadorian.”
When it was pointed out to Scott that he referenced Kurt Vonnegut he spontaneously combusted. So it goes.
Kevin Acee of the San Diego Union-Tribune reports that the Padres will place outfielder Franchy Cordero on the 10-day disabled list and activate outfielder Hunter Renfroe from the DL on Monday.
Cordero, 23, has been slumping, batting .140 with four extra-base hits in 47 plate appearances dating back to May 11. The Padres noticed that the forearm issue has been affecting his swing in recent games. Manager Andy Green said, “It was something where he could swing a certain way to manage it. But swinging that way was not him.”
Renfroe, 26, has been out since mid-April due to inflammation in his right elbow. He hit .200/.281/.440 in 57 PA prior to landing on the disabled list. Renfroe played in 10 rehab games with Triple-A El Paso.
