According to my boy Corey Seidman, it would be the first time in the two’s since July. He’ll be dealing with heat and humidity; hittin’ weather as Charlie used to call it. Chase Utley gets a night off with the lefty Eric Stults on the hill. Ryne Sandberg has mentioned that he’d like to get his veterans time off down the stretch. Ryne Sandberg also told us today how he got his name. He was named after Ryne Duren, a Yankees pitcher in the 50′s. Did you know that?

Haikuarrhea: Week 23 in Padres Baseball

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday (sorry – I’m late) to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task. The Padres had a weird week. They were swept...

Daily Friar 9.11.13

The Padres offense came alive yesterday at Citizens Bank Park behind a strong outing by Andrew Cashner. Cashner went 7 2/3 innings pitched, allowed only 4 hits, 2 runs, and one walk while striking out seven. The offense provided more than enough run support as the Padres came out on top 8-2. Today, the Pads send Eric Stults to the mound to face fellow southpaw Cliff Lee of the Phillies...

Needy on the Rise

LAKE ELSINORE - In 2009, James Needy seemed to have the world by the tail.
