Buster Posey did the bulk of the work for the San Francisco Giants in Friday night's 10-1 win over the San Diego Padres with five RBIs, but he did get a little help from the Kung Fu Panda, Pablo Sandoval, who hit an RBI double in the fifth inning. If the Padres had gotten their way that moment could have become a highlight on blooper reels across the nation thanks to the old Rookie of the Year-hidden ball trick. For some odd reason Padres outfielder Everth Cabrera decided to hide the ball and tag Sandoval as stepped off the bag. As much as I dig the movie and love the move, I am not sure what is funnier here--the fact that he tried it or that he tried to argue with the umpire when he didn't get the out. Your browser does not support iframes. The reason according to the media last night was because Sandoval had called time. Apparently once the pitcher stepped onto the mound Cabrera had to send the ball back to the mound and couldn't just tag Sandoval. ...

San Diego Padres: Mid-Season Report Card

San Francisco Giants – Mid-Season Report Card

Team:  San Francisco Giants Record: 43-51 (6.5 GB) Biggest Surprise of 1st Half: The biggest surprise of the 1st half is obviously how poorly the Giants have played the past couple of months, playing themselves out of 1st place and into 4th in the NL West division.  But if I had to choose a player, it would be Giants second basemen Marco Scutaro.  Since being traded to the Giants...

San Diego Padres Woes Continue As Injuries Pile Up

This last week has been somewhat of a trial as a San Diego Padres fan. First, Tom Garfinkel resigned from his positions as CEO and President (take it as you will). Second, it was announced that Clayton Richard would be having season ending shoulder surgery. Add that the rest of the Padres injuries (Yonder Alonso, Jedd Gyorko, Cameron Maybin, and Yasmani Grandal), and you have a recipe...

Pedro Ciriaco Designated for Assignment by Padres As San Diego Makes Flurry of Moves

The Padres made a number of moves Friday, and one included a name very familiar to Red Sox fans. The Padres announced that infielder Pedro Ciriaco has been designated for assignment.

Ciriaco appeared in 23 games with the Padres after playing in 28 games with the Red...

You have to give the Padres an ‘A’ for effort on Friday night as they tried to pull off the hidden ball trick. Check out the Padres’ Everth Cabrera and Sean O’Sullivan attempt the hidden-ball trick on the Giants’ Pablo Sandoval, but in true Padres fashion it didn’t work. Sean O’Sullivan had to move, didn’t he? Good game, good effort. Article found on: Next Impulse Sports

While You Were Drinking: Game 94 (SF vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. My goodness do I hope you were drinking. Or simply doing something, anything, else than watching this game. The Padres lost 10-1 to the Giants. For the 2nd game in a row the Padres scored in the 1st inning and then…nothingness. Local...

Zito, Bullpen Undone by Padres, Drop Finale 10-1

Three straight wins including a no-hitter isn’t too shabby for the defending World Champions, however a four game sweep of the Padres was not to be. Sunday afternoon was less than favorable for starter Barry Zito as he allowed four runs in two plus innings as well as three home runs. The Padres got some measure of revenge for Lincecum’s no hitter on Saturday, tattooing Giants...

MadFriars' Daily Farm Report: July 12

With an embarrassing rotation in the Majors, Tyson Ross and Robbie Erlin are relegated to Triple-A to pick up victories. Extra innings are good news for Ft. Wayne, but don't work out as well for the rookie club. Eugene's offense has awakened with the arrival of Hunter Renfroe.

Giants 10, Padres 1

Giants 4, Padres 2

Pablo Sandoval hit his first home run since May 21, and All-Star Madison Bumgarner settled down to allow just four hits in seven innings as the San Francisco Giants beat the San Diego Padres 4-2 Thursday night in a matchup of the worst teams in the weak NL West. The defending World Series champion Giants, who snapped a four-game losing streak, have been in a free-fall since June...

Hot or Not: Aces stay hot, bats get cold

Madison Bumgarner – Hot This was an easy choice for the hottest player on the Giants. Why? Well, the team is playing awful right now. So finding a player playing well is easy in a sea of terrible. In a stretch where the Giants are 5 – 14, Bumgarner is the reason for three of those wins, shutting down the Rockies, Dodgers and Padres. In fact, in his last six starts, Bumgarner...
