Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening binge-drinking $5 beers in the Park At The Park and Padres Beerfest. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed after you blacked out and woke up under the swing set in a playground in Ramona.
The Padres (10-8) scored less runs than the Los Angeles Dodgers (10-6) last night. In fact, they didn’t score...
DENVER (AP) -- San Diego manager Bud Black brought an extra outfielder into the infield, hoping to entice a ground ball and somehow escape an improbable situation.
No such luck.
Pinch-hitter Daniel Descalso ruined the ploy by lifting an RBI single in the ninth inning after Corey Dickerson tied the game in the eighth with his second solo homer of the night, helping the Colorado Rockies...

There’s been a common phrase that’s been thrown around frequently both by the local and national media when discussing Bud Black’s tenure with the San Diego Padres. “He doesn’t have the horses,” is what they say, meaning he doesn’t have the necessary talent to succeed. And for most part that notion’s been true.
Hired in 2007 after longtime manager Bruce...

San Diego Padres manager Bud Black turned the corner to meet the press on the first day of spring training and was taken aback at the throng of reporters waiting.
"What are we, the Yankees?" Black asked.
No, but they're no longer the anonymous Padres, the light-hitting, star-less team planted near the bottom of the NL West.
Thanks to first-year general manager A.J. Preller's wild...

Bud Black was sporting quite the shiner during the San Diego Padres’ last few games. A few fans noticed that Black’s right eye was swollen and discolored and they tweeted the photos. @PadresCentral What happened to Bud Black's eye? Did he take a ball of his face in BP today? pic.twitter.com/Q0Lq9kdozX — dave perek (@daveperek) […]
In the seventh inning last night, after surrendering a 2-0 lead, Bud Black sent Tommy Medica to the plate. The bases were empty, and Medica was hitting for Jace Peterson. Medica struck out.
Medica is not a second baseman, so Black brought Alexi Amarista on to man the bag. With Nick Vincent having imploded, Dale Thayer entered the game at the same time to pitch.
Seems like a classic...
Let’s get this out of the way: The Padres aren’t firing Bud Black.
First, they (unnecessarily) exercised the club options on his contract for 2014 and 2015. He’s safe through at least this season. You’re excited, I can tell. Second, there’s no obvious replacement already on the coaching staff. Third, that’s baseball.
With that said, let’s have some fun with hypotheticals...
