Quentin drops suspension appeal

San Diego Padres slugger Carlos Quentin has dropped his appeal and is beginning an eight-game suspension for rushing the mound and inciting a brawl in which Los Angeles Dodgers pitcher Zack Greinke broke his left collarbone. With the suspension starting with Sunday's game against Colorado, Quentin will miss the Padres' three-game series at Dodger Stadium beginning Monday...

Quentin, Greinke share guilt in brawl

Few seem to believe Carlos Quentin's contention that he was justified to charge Dodgers right-hander Zack Greinke -- least of all Major League Baseball, which suspended Quentin but not Greinke for Friday's bench-clearing brawl. Well, Quentin might have a better argument than most of us initially perceived. Not an argument that excuses his reaction and breaking of Greinke...

Padres CEO Tom Garfinkel: Zack Greinke hit Carlos Quentin on purpose

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...

Padres CEO blames Greinke for brawl

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.

Padres President, CEO Makes Fun of Zack Greinke’s Battle With Social Anxiety Disorder, Calls Him ‘Rain Man’

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. Mitt Romney may have lost the 2012 presidential election for what he said when he thought he was in private company, and it seems Padres president and CEO Tom Garfinkel has made a similar...

Padres-Dodgers Preview

Tempers flared the last time the Los Angeles Dodgers and San Diego Padres met, boiling over in a bench-clearing altercation. Whether the two squads will be able to keep their cool remains to be seen as they meet again in Monday night's opener of a three-game series at Dodger Stadium. Los Angeles (7-5) took two of three from San Diego last week, including a 3-2 victory Thursday...

Dodgers aim to bounce back against Padres

After a disappointing loss last night on Jackie Robinson night, the Dodgers will look to get things back on track in game two of the three game series with the San Diego Padres.
