Jesus and the Giant Peach

Back in late September work had overtaken me.  So much so that I was barely keeping track of what was going on with the Padres.  But I did notice that during the last series with the Giants, Jesus Guzman homered. Apparently I have an unhealthy fixation with Jesus Guzman.  First thought:  Jeez, Guzman homered again?   Second:  Man, Guzman has OWNED the Giants this year! The...

Jesus Guzman's offense finally leads to a win

Jesus Guzman turned to Edinson Volquez in the ninth inning Monday and admitted he “had a bad feeling.” Each of Guzman’s first five homers this season, including a pinch-hit grand slam at Tampa Bay on May 11, had either put the Padres ahead or tied the game. And the Padres lost all five of those games. “There were a couple other RBI hits where the same thing happened,...

Jesus Guzman Reaches his Zenith

Before the current home stand started, a little tidbit about Jesus Guzman popped up on the screen.  Padres Pregame reported he hit .417 on the road trip, with 2 HR and 5 RBI.  Jesus is a part-time player pressed into recent full-time service due to all the Padres injuries.  But that line, and the fact that the Padres have lost every game this season in which Guzman has homered...

Jesus Guzman Learns From His Gross Display of Exuberance

On Tuesday night Jesus Guzman hit a 2 run homer at AT&T Park to give the Padres a short lived lead over the San Francisco Giants. Hitting the HR was great. I mean, I thought it was great. I was excited. The problem with my excitement however was that it was more subdued than the excitement exhibited by Jesus Guzman as he broke into his HR trot. Let’s break down this ugly display...

Giants, Padres in bench-clearing brawl

Tempers flared in the top of the second inning of the Giants’ 5-4 win over the Padres on Wednesday after Madison Bumgarner threw behind Padres first baseman Jesus Guzman, sending both teams into PG-rated send-up of their NL West brethren, the Dodgers and Diamondbacks: It’s possible Bumgarner was retaliating for Guzman’s overzealous celebration after a pinch-hit home run from...

Benches clear in Padres-Giants game

Both benches cleared after Giants starter Madison Bumgarner threw a pitch behind Padres' first baseman Jesus Guzman in the second inning of their game Wednesday. Bumgarner's first pitch to Guzman sailed about belt-high, apparently in response to Guzman's excessive celebration after hitting a pinch-hit home run Tuesday night. Guzman jumped out of the way and then took...
