Heath Bell Is The Gift That Keeps On Giving

Friday, April 17th, 2009

Earlier in the week we posted about how Heath Bell really doesn't like ESPN and Baseball Tonight's coverage of Major League Baseball. He claimed the WWL only cared about the Red Sox, Yankees and Mets. So basically he said exactly what we've all been thinking for years. Then, he went ...

Heath Bell Does Not Care For Your Coverage, ESPN

Tuesday, April 14th, 2009

While you might think I'd use this space to inform you that Jody Gerut's leadoff homerun at Citi Field last night was the first time a ballpark has been greeted with a homerun in the opening at bat, or to blab along about the San Diego Padres being 6-2 right ...

The Balls On These Guys

Sunday, April 12th, 2009

Several times over the past few months I've opined about the San Diego Padres and how they've basically given their fans a huge shit sandwich over the past two years. And after all that, after doing everything they could to alienate the fanbase, kill local support and piss me off ...

Heath Bell Makes Debut As Closer

Wednesday, April 8th, 2009

After roughly a decade and a half of Trevor Hoffman ruling their 'pen, the San Diego Padres have a new closer. Everyone's favorite Wii Fit user, Heath Bell, took the ball in the ninth inning last night with a 4-2 lead and shut the door on the Los Angeles Dodgers. ...

Alderson Out, Moorad In For The Padres

Friday, March 27th, 2009

A lot has been made around these parts about the ineptitude of the San Diego Padres. And, fairly or not, much of the blame has fallen on the shoulders of CEO and emotionless cyborg, Sandy Alderson. The guy made completely awful decisions over the past few years. So bad were ...

The Nail In The Coffin

Tuesday, February 24th, 2009

OK, OK, Phillips and I may have written about this subject a few dozen times this offseason, but hey it beats exercising. Our anger has been worked out and now we're (kind of) in the process of moving on. I've taken up Premier League Soccer Football again while Phillips...well, I ...

In Which McD Tries Not To Sound Like A Newcastle United Dilettante But Fails

Wednesday, February 4th, 2009

So Phillips and I have told baseball to go fuck itself for the 2009 season, meaning I don't care that pitchers and catchers report in a couple of weeks, or that Manny Ramirez is sitting RIGHT FUCKING THERE for the Padres, but their currently-getting-divorced owner can't spare a dime (or ...

Worry Not, Padres Fans, David Eckstein May Be Coming

Thursday, January 15th, 2009

It's been well documented by our resident Padres fans that the Fathers haven't done a whole lot this offseason to make anybody feel great about their chances next year. Trevor Hoffman is gone, they haven't added any more offense and have (unsuccessfully) shopped Jake Peavy. Who knows, Peavy may still be ...
