For the first time since 2006 the Padres were able to beat the Angels. It was a fantastic win to say the least. The Padres played Padres baseball: great pitching, great fielding (one error) and some timely hitting. Alexi Amarista was the spark plug for the team as he was always on base and scored 2 of the 3 Padres runs. I for one am very excited to watch him play in Petco for years to come. As of right now he is a huge improvement over Hudson.New faces Stults, Amarista lift Padres
“Stults found an even bigger one on Saturday, as Petco Park served as the backdrop of his first start with his new team, a start that saw him pitch into the seventh inning of the Padres' 3-2 victory over the Angels before a sold-out crowd of 43,427.”Kotsay becomes 13th Padre on the disabled list
– Union Tribune
“But he was no match for the Padres bad injury karma of 2012. Saturday afternoon, Kotsay became the 13th player on the Padres disabled list. Outfielder Blake Tekotte was recalled so late from Triple-A Tucson he was still flying as the game started.”Vincent’s first day in majors long but memorable
“But because it was such a long, exhausting day, Vincent may have been numb as he sat in the home bullpen Friday while his entourage celebrated several feet away in the bleachers.”Orlando Hudson headed to White Sox
– Chicago Sun-Times
“Help appears to be on the way, however, with second baseman Orlando Hudson, 34, telling players and media he’s headed to the Sox. Team sources confirmed the Hudson signing.”Former Padre Frieri now starring in Halos’ pen
– Fox Sports Southwest
“Now, he has become a valued member of the Angels' bullpen, a right-hander whose fastball has been unhittable. In six games since joining the team, Frieri has yet to give up a hit or run over 5 2/3 innings. He has struck out 12 batters.”Chicken Friars asks if Jason Bartlett will ever get another at bat with the Padres
"With an out-of-nowhere injury to Bartlett and the subsequent trip to the disabled list, it seems Byrnes has made up his mind on him too."Gaslamp Ball shares their thoughts on the game
"Now if only the Padres had a team full of Alexi Amaristas and every night they scurried around the bases like cockroaches then I could buy into the Padres "small ball" philosophy."

After just one start, Padres right-handed starter Tim Stauffer went back on the 15-day disabled list Friday with recurring soreness in the flexor tendon bundle in his right elbow. It is the same injury that put Stauffer on the disabled list just before Opening Day and forced him to miss his last two starts of the 2011 season. The recurring theme seems to be that shortly after...
Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn has joined movie producer Thomas Tull’s attempt to buy the San Diego Padres.
The Padres can be such a surprise sometimes. In a game that came down to 13 innings you had to begin to wonder if the Padres would be able to ever score another run. After being blown out on Friday and winning on Saturday, Sunday's rubber match had to come down to 4 extra innings in order to find a series winner. And wouldn't you know it, the Padres prevailed! This is quite...

Location, location, location. Location determines balls and strikes, the weather, housing value, and it can even turn Carlos Gonzalez (.262/.316/.427 on the road) into Ken Griffey Jr. (.329/.384/.609 at home). Personally, I dig California. You’re never far from a beach, a mountain range, or a desert. Pretty much every culture on earth is represented somewhere. The heat in the scorching...
A flurry of roster moves yesterday ended in nothing but a whimper from the Padres offense. You can read all about the moves below, but I'll give one spoiler: Orlando Hudson is no longer a Padre. It's what everybody wanted and it finally happened. All the moves were in place prior to the release and it seemed to work well. Last night's game was a blowout, plain and simple...
