It’s been a strange month in Padres land, where things have been turned on their head and one man has done as close to nothing as possible. It feels just about right, because it’s been a bizarre month for me, personally. Let’s talk about it. Your move, Ron Fowler. 12 days ago, Tom Garfinkel resigned as CEO of the Padres. The Padres went radio silent and we were left to ourselves to figure out what happened. Did he find a better opportunity? Was he jumping from a sinking ship? Did he fall out of love with breakfast? Was he defeated in a staff “Loser Leaves Town” wrestling match? Turns out, he was asked to leave. Ron Fowler cited differences in opinion on how the team should be run, whatever that means. Fine.

Jesus Guzman's offense finally leads to a win

Jesus Guzman turned to Edinson Volquez in the ninth inning Monday and admitted he “had a bad feeling.” Each of Guzman’s first five homers this season, including a pinch-hit grand slam at Tampa Bay on May 11, had either put the Padres ahead or tied the game.
