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, ...

Wednesday, August 12th, 2009

Lucy Pinder is a big fan of Southampton's football team. In honor of "Soccer Day" here on Rumors and Rants, she's bringing you the links. And the above photo is just about the tamest one we could find of Lucy. Good lass. That's a fantastic sign. Stay classy, Ronaldo - The ...

Rachel Nichols Picture and Today’s Links

Monday, August 3rd, 2009

Rachel Nichols (no, not that one) is in the upcoming GI Joe movie, which looks like crap, but hey whatever. I'm sure that suit is tactical and not tight for no reason. Fedor signed with Strikeforce! Snap! - Fanhouse I'd like to think it would have been the Padres that would have ...

The Peavy Incident

Sunday, August 2nd, 2009

So it finally happened. We've discussed it for months and now Jake Peavy has finally been traded from the San Diego Padres. Those of you who know me well, personally or from reading this site, know my feelings for the Padres front office right now. Well, don't worry...don't worry. I'm not going ...

Official Heath Bell Should Be An All-Star Post

Monday, June 29th, 2009

The San Diego Padres suck. We all know this. Following a 2-0 win over the Texas Rangers Sunday night, the Friars are currently 33-41 and 14 games behind the Los Angeles Dodgers in the National League West race. Why do I bring this up? Because despite the level of ineptitude ...

The Balls On These Guys, Part II

Tuesday, May 26th, 2009

Yesterday the San Diego Padres won their 10th straight game. They didn't just win it, they had an improbable comeback against a division rival on the road. They trailed 7-1 entering the top of the 8th inning. They scored five runs in the eighth, then tied the game with another ...

Peavy To The Other Chicago Team?

Thursday, May 21st, 2009

The Chicago White Sox have thrown their hat into the Jake Peavy Sweepstakes. And I continue to use mixed metaphors. Tough day all around. Look, Phillips has said again and again and again and again that Peavy ain't going anywhere, but that's not really the point anymore. There are always going ...
