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 ...

Jonathan Sanchez Makes Me Hate Baseball Even More

Saturday, July 11th, 2009

It's well documented that I hate baseball. That's mainly because my boyhood favorite team - the San Diego Padres - are freaking awful. And they have been for the better part of 40 years. Last night they did something that made me realize that, yes, I am completely justified in ...

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 ...

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 ...

Screw You, SEC

Monday, March 16th, 2009

Every year, the NCAA tournament committee manages to make at least one glaring mistake. And we're always here to call them out on it. Last year, it was the comparatively minor violation of giving Butler the shaft when it came to seeding. Last year's Bulldogs, who were clearly good enough to ...

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 ...

A.J. Smith Has Jumped The Shark

Friday, January 23rd, 2009

This was originally going to be my own hate-filled rant about Chargers' GM AJ Smith and his growing Woody Hayes-like insanity. Instead, I'll just let Yahoo!'s Michael Silver say it for me: "Make no mistake: Deciding whether Tomlinson will remain with the Chargers, at least privately, is part of Smith's job. ...
