The San Diego Padres are now in sole possession of fourth place in the NL West standings after a 3-2 victory yesterday against the defending world champion San Francisco Giants. Robbie Erlin recorded his first major league hit and RBI, and despite the high pitch count, pitched a solid game as well: 5.1 IP, 6 H, 2 ER, 2 BB, 5 SO. Catcher Nick Hundley had a good night at the plate, going 2-for-2 with a walk, an RBI, and two runs scored. Huston Street recorded the save for the second straight night, his 27th on the season. Make sure to tune-in for this afternoon’s game at 3:40 PT as Eric Stults faces Tim Lincecum of the Giants. Get your broom sticks ready. Padres are going for the sweep. Also, I want to share this video with you. I’m sure many have seen it before. Any time the Padres are going for their third straight win, I think of this movie.

Giants tattoo Stults in handing Padres 13-5 loss

While the San Francisco Giants' Pablo Sandoval showed his power, some wonder if the San Diego Padres' Eric Stults is running on empty. ''Is he getting tired?'' Padres Manager Bud Black said. ''I don't think so. His stuff still looks good. This time of the year one can go that direction, but he still feels physically good.'' Sandoval&...

The Padres Want More Will Venable

On the face of it, extending Will Venable for two years and $8.5 million — as the Padres have done today — is a no-brainer. Even before this year’s mini-breakout, Venable has spent four years being worth something close to two wins per year. Despite the decline coming for the thirty-year-old outfielder, he can most […]

Practice Assembling the Filet-O-Fish Now

Last month, Avenging Jack Murphy wrote about removing distractions and concentrating on the game at hand. It was very well thought out and informative. This is not going to be anything close to well thought out. As far as informative, that is a matter of opinion. Say hello to my stream of consciousness. As the season winds down, and the Padres fight to stay out of last place in...
