The Padres defeated the D-Backs tonight, moving to 34-34. I feel like Tom Cruise in Vanilla Sky . . . Recap: Corey Brock- Dennis Lin - Bill Center Quote: “He needed that,” Black said of Grandal’s homer. “For Yazi, this is still early in the year. There’s a little bit of frustration that sets in for players when they’re not hitting. To Yazi’s credit, he hasn’t let that affect his catching one bit.” Tweet: .500! #Padres #PPLive — Patrick Green (@PatrickPGreen) June 16, 2013 WOW! Grandal hit that ball along way. I think it landed in El Cajon. #Padres #PPLive — Mike Vea (@The_Mike_Vea) June 16, 2013 Picture: Logan Forsythe played LF tonight. True story. Video: Go watch Yasmani Grandal hit a ball very far. It was too high. *** The Padres meet the D-Backs tomorrow at 1:10 pm with a sweep on the line.

Padres' Everth Cabrera and Carlos Quentin may land on DL

Cabrera had to leave yesterday...

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. So I tweeted this: Negative Nancy tweet: let's see the Padres get over .500 before we wonder if they are possible contenders...

The Padres, as No Team has Been Before

It is a fact undeniable that people don’t often talk about the San Diego Padres. The reasons for this, presumably, are numerous. The Padres haven’t been good for a while. They have a relatively small fan base, and a limited payroll, and they’re overshadowed by bigger deals up north. They play out West, for whatever that might matter. They don’t have any stop-what-you’re...

D-backs send Miley to hill against streaking Padres

Too Long To Be Just A Comment

Inspired by Left Coast Bias’ excellent post earlier today. I bought season tickets for the 1997 season during the 1996 season, because it came with guaranteed playoff tickets for the 1996 post-season.  Although that NLDS didn’t end well, I thoroughly enjoyed watching Tony Gwynn hit in 1997, his last truly great offensive season, even though the Padres finished 76-86. When...
