Jon Garland Is Flat-Out Dealing Right Now

Wednesday, May 26th, 2010

Tuesday night in San Diego St. Louis starter Adam Wainwright and Padres righty Jon Garland engaged in a good, old-fashioned pitchers duel. And Garland won. Wainwright, who many experts love for the Cy Young in 2010, made one big mistake and it was blasted for a solo home run by ...

The Padres Begin Their Inevitable Collapse

Monday, May 17th, 2010

After sweeping the Giants in San Francisco last week, the San Diego Padres positioned themselves 3 1/2 games ahead of the rest of the National League West. They were pitching as well as anyone in baseball and were getting timely hits from up and down the lineup. This was starting ...

Why Are The San Diego Padres Doing This To Me?

Monday, May 3rd, 2010

The San Diego Padres, predicted by almost every scouting service to be one of the worst teams in baseball this season, currently sit atop the National League West with a 16-9 record. The Friars are just two games behind Tampa Bay for the best record in baseball, have won 13 ...

Kyle Blanks Needs To Re-Grow His Afro

Friday, April 2nd, 2010

There's not a whole lot to dislike about Kyle Blanks. The 23-year-old San Diego Padre is a 6'6, 270-pound outfielder who is incredibly likable, has light-tower power and actually runs well (three stolen bases and three triples this spring, and an inside-the-park home run last year). The only thing keeping ...

Latos Likely Padres’ Fifth Starter

After a spirited battle the fifth spot in the San Diego Padres' rotation will likely go to Mat Latos, after the 22-year old had a fantastic showing this spring. In five appearances in the Cactus League Latos tossed 17 innings, allowed just 12 hits, five runs (three earned) and struck ...

The End Of The Leitner-Coleman Era

Tuesday, March 2nd, 2010

Very few things have been consistent about the San Diego Padres over their history. I mean, unless you count the mediocrity, idiot ownership and general managers, lack of talent and the radio broadcasting team of Jerry Coleman and Ted Leitner. The two of them, now much older than I'd care ...

Padres Slash Beer Prices, Expectations For 2010

Tuesday, February 16th, 2010

At some point this season, the San Diego Padres will most likely trade Adrian Gonzalez (2009's team leader in batting average, home runs, RBI, and OPS), and begin their residency in last place, staying there longer than most doctors take to complete their own residencies. It's bargain-basement time in San Diego, ...
