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 ...

Jake Peavy Got Things Started

Monday, March 1st, 2010

The Adrian Gonzalez Contract Situation isn't so much a sword of Damocles for the San Diego Padres as a guillotine waiting to drop and mercifully end all the speculation. Some one is going to do the impulsive thing this summer and trade their whole farm system to San Diego for ...

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.

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 ...
