Vincente Padilla apparently thinks he's paid by the hour.
The Texas Rangers right-hander took a little more than 30 seconds between pitches in the first inning and the Seattle Mariners emerged with a 4-0 lead.
Padilla walked two, tried various pickoff moves, delayed and hesitated and seemed to doze on the mound.
The Mariners scored on a bases-loaded walk, an RBI single, a passed ball and a ground out.
That 'rally' took up 26 minutes.
The Mariners gave a run back when Josh Hamilton's long fly ball to left field eluded Bryan LaHair for an RBI triple. It should have been caught, but the Mariners are letting LaHair - a first baseman - play in left to get him at-bats.
Even fans enjoying the sun today had trouble applauding this inning.
After one inning and 36 minutes: Seattle 4, Texas 1.
