RJ & RJ’s Fro on Padres Social Hour

I had the amazing opportunity to appear on the awesome new pre-game show, Padres Social Hour, last night along side the Godfather of RJ’s Fro, Randy Jones. I was there for the Taste of Petco Park food tour, which I’ll discuss in more detail tomorrow, and I was watching the show. Next thing I know Jesse Agler approached me and told me to come on down. I initially thought it was...

Second Annual SD SABR Garage Sale

A year ago, the SD SABR chapter hosted a baseball-themed Garage Sale at the Hall of Champions.  We had so much fun doing that that we decided to do it again. This Saturday, at Randy Jones’ Grill in Mission Valley, the Chapter will host its Second Annual Garage Sale.  As with last year’s event, all monies raised will help support the Baseball Research Center.  Come on down...

Padres and Pints: Episode 16 with the San Diego Chicken

When creating a Mount Rushmore for the Padres, coming up with a list of names is an easy task for me: Tony Gwynn, Trevor Hoffman, Randy Jones and the one and only San Diego Chicken. Based on their body of work and what they have done for the city of San Diego, it’s a no-brainer for me every time. Ted Giannoulas, aka The San Diego Chicken,  has been making fans laugh for 39 years...

Q&A: Eric Stults, Poor-Man’s Randy Jones

Eric Stults didn’t represent the San Diego Padres in last night’s All-Star Game. He arguably deserved the honor, which is remarkable given where he’s come from. The 33-year-old left-hander was claimed off waivers last May after being released by the White Sox. Three years ago he was pitching for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. Stults had 8 career wins when he joined the Padres. Last...

Padres and Pints w/ Randy Jones!!

In the latest “lost episode” of Padres and Pints, we chat with Padres Hall of Famer, and RJ’s Fro namesake, Randy Jones! It was shortly after the trading deadline last year and it was interesting to hear RJ’s take on how he thought the Padres did and if he thought they were headed in the right direction. We then talk to Mark from the Randy Jones All-American Sports Grill...

Why Haven’t The Mets Retired Jerry Koosman’s Number?

Photo by Walter Kelleher/Daily News I was recently doing research for another piece when I came across the career numbers of three pitchers – Bert Blyleven, Randy Jones and Don Wilson.  In particular, I focused on what Blyleven achieved during his 11 seasons in Minnesota, as well as what Jones did in eight years with the Padres and what Wilson accomplished in his nine years with...

Peter Tessier: It's All Coming Down to Math

Take it as you like Jets’ fans, the numbers don’t lie, it’s all down to math and the outside matchups don’t make it any easier. The Jets can win their games but they have to have others lose and right now those very teams are taking off as the Jets’ engines sputter. There was much venom for Randy Jones after his defensive gaffe on Satruday night. Knives...
