Yesterday afternoon, as the Padres’ bullpen lost control for the second time in three days, fans started offering thoughts. They ranged from, “We want Luke Gregerson’s head on a stick” to “WHY IS JOE THATCHER EVEN ON THE TEAM????” I’m paraphrasing but make no mistake fans were upset, myself included.
Then I began to see the name of Kevin Quackenbush getting floated around. Then this . . .

Now it is Monday. Go to Baseball Prospectus and read about Kevin Quackenbush.
I don’t know, maybe you’ll feel better.

The San Diego Padres have one of the National League's top rookies in second baseman Jedd Gyorko. Unfortunately, they may have to play without their rookie sensation for a while. Gyorko left Sunday's game with the Colorado Rockies in the tenth inning after hurting his right groin while running the bases. Examination on Monday should reveal the extent of the injury.
San Diego Padres closer Huston Street threw a simulated game yesterday, according to Jamal Collier of MLB.com. It was the right-hander's first time facing hitters since he was placed on the 15-day disabled list earlier this month.
During the session, Street threw all of his pitches. Manager Bud Black said Street threw the ball well and his calf no longer seems to be an issue...
As you’ve read here a time or twenty before, promotions are kind of my thing. On Sunday morning I was alerted by Padres President Tom Garfinkel via Twitter that my voice, along with many others, has been heard and to look at the cover of the U-T.
Thanks to @RJsFro and others who asked us to step up the promo calendar. See the cover of the UT today. Ownership heard you…
It was not an unexpected moved. Jedd Gyorko was placed on the 15-day disabled list yesterday with a groin strain. The move comes after Gyorko had to be removed from Sunday's game after injuring the groin. The San Diego Padres will monitor him and hope the injury is minor enough to allow him to come off the DL in the minimum number of days allowed.

Padres fan dives into bushes for Jason Heyward HR ball A San Diego Padres fan made a hilarious attempt to chase down a home run ball hit by Atlanta Braves batter Jason Heyward by diving into some bushes during Monday night's game at Petco Park. It happened in the top of the eighth inning as Heyward hit the HR to right field and the ball found its way into an alleyway between...
I recently found that a disturbing number of young people don’t know the name of Tony Gwynn or his historical significance to the city of San Diego. In fairness to these children, the overwhelming majority were born during 2001 when Tony was riding off into the sunset. I don’t blame these kids. I blame their parents. How could you raise your children in the city of San Diego...
Logan Forsythe homered in his first at-bat of the season, Will Venable added a three-run homer and Jason Marquis won his seventh straight decision to lead the San Diego Padres to a 7-6 victory against the Atlanta Braves on Monday night.
Both homers came off rookie Julio Teheran, who had a no-hitter through 7 2-3 innings in his previous start.
Braves rookie Evan Gattis had a pinch...
Andrew Cashner outdueled Tim Hudson, Chase Headley homered and the San Diego Padres beat the Atlanta Braves for the second straight game, 3-2 Tuesday night.
Cashner (5-3) pitched a career high eight innings, allowing two runs on six hits, striking out five and walking one. It marked the seventh straight time that he has pitched six-plus innings. At one point Cashner retired 10 straight...
The San Diego Padres made it two in a row over the Atlanta Braves, as Chase Headley homered and starter Andrew Cashner out-pitched Tim Hudson. Hudson was sharp again on Tuesday night. But he did not get the run support he deserved and absorbed the loss. The win over the Braves has given the Padres a chance to sweep the series tomorrow afternoon. The Braves got on the board first...
I’ve lived most of my life in Southern California, which means I do certain things and like certain things. For instance: Halloween Night is meant to be spent at Irvine Meadows listening to Oingo Boingo. Freeways are referred to as the number without an article before them (you take 5 North to 405 North to 10 West. No ‘The Five’. Heathens.). And arguably the best...
It’s hard to find a good, stable middle infield combination, especially offensively, since so many players at those positions are defensive specialists who are happy to see a blooper fall in occasionally. When a team like the Padres puts together a good middle infield combo seemingly overnight, it’s definitely worthy of mention. In shortstop Everth Cabrera and second baseman...
While he started off a bit shaky, Julio Teheran has since found his groove.
The San Diego Padres' Jason Marquis has shined of late, too.
Teheran takes the mound opposite Marquis as the visiting Atlanta Braves open a three-game set against the Padres on Monday night.
After posting a 7.31 ERA in his first three starts, Teheran (4-2, 3.30 ERA) has significantly turned things...
Tucson came back from an early hole on the back of Logan Forsythe's two homers, locking up a sweep for the system. The outfield continues to produce for San Antonio, and the Storm and TinCaps each extend their recent runs of success.
