Chase Headley is the Problem

There’s no denying it anymore. I’ve tried for so long, living in denial. I’ve tried convincing myself that Chase Headley was a very good player. I was lost in the fantasy of wanting him to become someone he never had the talent of being. Alas, the first 19 games of the season have finally convinced me that the Headley naysayers are right. Chase Headley is the problem. He...

Quarterback Controversy: Catcher Edition?

Jelly beans happen to be my favorite, and for a jelly bean fanatic, there’s no better holiday. The Padres’ cup, on the other hand, runneth over with catchers, and luckily, at least so far,  none of them have been runneth...

Pitching again the story as Padres beats Giants

Eric Stults finally pitched with a lead. He remembered just what to do with it, too. The crafty left-hander worked his way through six strong innings, limiting the Giants to three hits, only one of which hurt – Michael Morse’s fifth-inning homer – in an otherwise spotless outing that propelled the Padres to a 3-1 win Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd of 43,405 Petco...

A House Divided: Chase Headley Addition

You’ll often here it said, if you follow San Diego sports for any length of time, that the attitude and environment in San Diego is relaxed. For some players, this is the draw to playing in San Diego (besides weather, beaches, beer, tacos, etc). The media isn’t as pushy as in New York or Boston and the fans are far more forgiving. This reputation is well-earned and often mocked...

Cashner showing signs he has the entire package

There is a whole lot to like about Andrew Cashner, from his smoking fastball to his killer slider to his laconic Texas demeanor. Personally, my favorite thing about the Padres fast-emerging ace came in the moments following last Friday's re-arranging of the Tigers' stripes. He had just fired the second one-hitter in his past five starts dating back to last Sept. 16, having...
