In light of the horrifying events taking place in Boston this week and especially over the last 24 hours, the Giants will be bolstering security efforts for this weekend’s series at AT&T Park against the Padres, beginning Friday night.
Here’s a statement the team released (via Bay Area Sports Guy):
The Giants will return home to AT&T Park on Friday, April 19th for a three-game, weekend series with the San Diego Padres (Friday 7:15 p.m.; Saturday 6:05 p.m.; Sunday 1:05 p.m.). Fans can expect increased security at AT&T Park that is similar to what has previously been seen at marquee events, including the recent World Baseball Classic and post-season games. In addition, mandatory bag inspections and wanding will be enforced at all gates. The Giants urge fans to arrive early and appreciate the cooperation and understanding of our fans as we work together to ensure a safe and secure ballpark experience. Gates open two hours prior to game time.

Tom Garfinkel was caught on tape blaming Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke for the brawl between the teams as well as making an insulting remark about Greinke.
PEORIA, AZ -- Although most of the attention this spring has been deservedly on the number of quality pitchers in the Padres' system they are also starting to develop fast, athletic players in the field. Nowhere is a better example of this than up the I-15 in Lake Elsinore.

As expected, Chase Headley was able to make the series finale between the San Diego Padres and the Los Angeles Dodgers. He return comes one month after he suffered a fractured thumb during spring training. Of course, to make room on the roster, the Padres had to make a corresponding move. Unfortunately, that move was placing another starter, Cameron Maybin, on the DL.
Last week's Dodgers-Padres brawl had serious repercussions for both teams on the injury and suspension fronts, but it's also the impetus for some potential public relations problems in San Diego.

Tom Garfinkel, President and CEO of the Padres, spoke with season-ticket holders about the Zack Greinke/Carlos Quentin brawl, and he placed the blame on Greinke for the incident.
While somewhat deluded, that’s not all that surprising, but also included in the tape that Jeff Passan of Yahoo! Sports acquired is audio of him essentially mocking Greinke (who has social anxiety disorder...
Zack Greinke has a history of hitting Carlos Quentin. Whether he has done so intentionally or not, it is that history that sparked a bench-clearing brawl between the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres last week.
Quentin was hit by more pitches than any player in the league last season, but that hasn’t affected Padres president and CEO Tom Garfinkel’s opinion on what went...

Okay, so I’m a bit late to the party here and I’ll keep it brief, not because I enjoy keeping my recaps brief, but because my cold turned into a monster and I’ve barely been able to do anything for myself.
Wednesday night, the Dodgers dropped their game to the Padres 7-2. Clayton Kershaw picked up his 1,000th career strikeout, but gave up 3 home runs, including a shot to...
Few starting pitchers have been better than Madison Bumgarner thus far. There may not be one off to a worse start than Edinson Volquez.
Those two squaring off appears to give the San Francisco Giants a big edge Friday night at AT&T Park, as might their recent history against the San Diego Padres going into the season series opener between these NL West foes.
