Padres' Blown Leads Result In Series Sweep at Wrigley

The Padres came into the series having not scored in almost three whole games while facing a team that had lost 12 in a row. With both teams floundering at the bottom of their divisions somebody would have to come out on top. Unfortunately it was Chicago as the Padres lost leads in all three games, losing their third consecutive series and finishing their 10 game road trip with a...

The Platoon Advantage: On the Padres, Cycles, Supercycles and Pseudocycles by Bill Parker

Carlos Quentin was playing just his second game of the season on Tuesday afternoon, in the Padres’ eventual loss to the Cubs. He doubled in the second inning, homered in the fifth, and singled in the seventh, which meant that television and radio announcers were legally bound to declare that Quentin was “a triple short of the cycle.” It’s a phrase that, while true and harmless...

Apparently the Padres don't want to win a game on this road trip. I take that back, they did win one game on this road trip but are refusing to win anymore. After losing to the Cubs twice so far, the Padres are now the worst team in the National League. It was an honor bestowed on the Cubs, but now the Padres have taken the crown. I don't know what to root for at this point...

It's crazy really the trend that the Padres are on right now. If the pitching is phenomenal and only gives up two runs, the offense gets shut out. But if the offense is on fire for the one day a week, then the pitching falters and gives up a ton of runs. Such was the case yesterday. The Padres exploded for runs, much like the first game in New York. But unlike the first game...

Twins release RHP Jason Marquis

Padres activate Quentin

The San Diego Padres no longer have to wait to see what Carlos Quentin can contribute. Quentin was activated from the 15-day disabled list before Monday’s game against the Chicago Cubs. The 29-year-old outfielder, acquired in the offseason, hadn’t played for the Padres since undergoing knee surgery in spring training. The San Diego native hit .254 with 24 home runs last season...

Bird in Wrigley Field infield nearly gets hit by batted ball during Cubs/Padres (Video)

We've seen already some interesting baseball moments with birds and the below video is another one to add to the collection. During Monday's Cubs/Padres game, a bird somehow made it onto the infield during the seventh inning when San Diego's Everth Cabrera was at the plate. Then, a batted ball from Cabrera nearly hit the bird but ended up in the glove of Cubs 3rd...

Daily Friar 5.28.12

Happy Memorial Day to all the vets and active duty members out there. I hope you all have a wonderful day, and I hope that we alll take the time to remember the sacrifices that were made for us. The Padres offense is disgustingly horrible. It’s downright pathetic right now. I don’t know who you want to put the blame on, but something isn’t right. The team finished up the series...
