The Padres Front Office Is Dead To Me

Friday, January 9th, 2009

As I'm sure you've heard, yesterday baseball's all-time saves leader agreed to a deal with the Milwaukee Brewers, officially ending his 16-year tenure with the San Diego Padres. As a lifelong Padres fan, I'm not happy. In fact, I'm the opposite of happy. Typically I try to take the high road ...

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 ...

Peavy May Not Be Traded After All

ESPN's Buster Olney - you know, the guy we've called a moron several times - is now reporting that the San Diego Padres are prepared to keep 2007 Cy Young Award winner Jake Peavy if they can't get equal value in return for the right-hander. Um, duh. Kinda funny how we ...

The Rays’ Success Is Bad For Baseball

Wednesday, October 22nd, 2008

To put it into ultra-simplistic terms, our economy is screwed because people have been spending far too much money. People were given home loans they could not possibly pay back, thus killing several lending giants. A few years ago was the first time in a hell of a long time ...

Buster Olney Is Insane, Part III

Friday, October 17th, 2008

For the third time in less than a year Buster Olney has taken to his ESPN flavored Word Pad and penned a long story about how Jake Peavy will be traded by the San Diego Padres. Last year he claimed the Padres were discussing a deal that would send Peavy ...
