In a tie game with two outs in the bottom of the 12th, Veneble had this diving catch off the bat of Juan Pierre. Had Veneble not made the grab, Brandon Belt, who was standing at second base, would have easily scored the game-winning run. After winning this game in the 13 innings,...

The Bar: Everth Cabrera’s Hamstring

This is a Public House . . . so we’re at the bar. Everth Cabrera has been fantastic this year but with his hamstring strained how do the Padres fill the void moving forward? Can they play...

A Point Of Contention

On Thursday, during the Padres’ off day, after they’d finished off a sweep of the NL East leading Braves, I started reading some Twitter musings about how few games back the Padres were from first place and how close contention actually was for this team.

Everth Cabrera Propelling San Diego Padres Up NL West

Lenny Ignelzi- AP Everth Cabrera has been the most valuable player in all of baseball during the last 30 days. Thanks to Cabrera’s strong performance through his last 27 games, the San Diego Padres are in the midst of a seven-game win streak and are quickly climbing up the NL West ladder. During his previous four stints in the majors, Cabrera has been an average hitter (if not...

Who are these San Diego Padres?

The San Diego Padres? Most of us predicted them to finish last in the NL West this year, right? That division was expected to be a two-team race between the defending World Series champion San Francisco Giants and megabucks Los Angeles Dodgers. Early in the season, however, the surprise emergence of the Arizona Diamondbacks and Colorado Rockies made the NL West a three-team battle...

Royals and Padres need to Deal

by John Viril— The Kansas City Royals and San Diego Padres are mirror images of each other. Kansas City stands 34-34 while the Padres are a half-game better at 35-34.

Meanwhile, the Padres position players have...

Third day in a row, and it was the same result as the Diamondbacks lost to the Padres 4-1 to complete the Padres’ series sweep Sunday afternoon. 

The Rare All-Star

Some teams dominate the All-Star roster, and some teams get a lone rep.  Some teams always send position players and perhaps a pitcher every now and then, some teams just send one or the other.  In recent years, San Diego has been in the latter category of both. The last two seasons, the Padres have only sent one representative, a pitcher.  Since moving to Petco, the Padres have...

Indoctrination 101: Naming Rights

There are certain areas of life where beliefs must be arrived upon using one’s own freewill. Padres baseball is not one of those areas. During the middle of last week I was notified by my wife and daughters that we would be buying two fish this summer as pets. I smiled with faux enthusiasm. The last fish we brought into our home came from a creek in Poway. We thought it was a tadpole...
