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

Record: 3-4, 2-5 ATS Updated through Alamo Bowl Friday, December 26, 2008 7:30pm ET Motor City Bowl Florida Atlantic (6-6) at Central Michigan (8-4) (-6) After the Troy debacle, I'm sure as shit not going with another Sun Belt Conference team against another small conference team. I'm not saying the uh, uh Owls, that's it, the ...

Padres, Cubs Set To Quit Each Other

Thursday, December 11th, 2008

This might be the most insufferably boring edition of the Winter Meetings in years. So far there have been virtually no big stories. I mean what have we gotten? The Yankees handed out far too much money. WOW, that is news. The Mets got two closers and plan to make ...
