Chase Headley out at least a month with broken thumb

Monday, March 18th, 2013

San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley finally put it all together in 2012 and had a monster breakout season. He looked poised to continue that tear in 2013, but the usually durable Tennessee product won't be ready for Opening Day after fracturing his left thumb on Sunday. The fracture occurred ...

San Diego Padres: Chase Headley wins National League RBI crown

Wednesday, October 3rd, 2012

In what I think is one of the more incredible statistical feats in recent memory, San Diego Padres third baseman Chase Headley won the National League RBI crown on Wednesday night.

It's bargain-basement time in San Diego, ...

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 ...

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 ...
