While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 93 (SD at LAD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (41-52) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (52-43) 6-3 last night at Dodger Stadium.  Jesse Hahn (5-2, 2.21) and his curveball confused and confounded the Dodgers batters.  Over six innings, Hahn gave up just...

Padres hang on to beat Dodgers

Some things stretch the bounds of logic and physics: 41-inning scoreless streaks, Yasiel Puig’s right arm, Alexi Amarista’s ability to punish a mistake, Joaquin Benoit’s deliberate pace. On Friday, there was nothing special about Dan Haren’s abbreviated start. That Clayton Kershaw had thrown a complete-game dazzler the evening before only highlighted a thoroughly human outing...

Guy in Charge of Mowing Patterns into Petco Outfield Getting a Bit Avant Garde

Across baseball, groundskeepers mow patterns into the outfield grass. Most are in the shapes team logos, stars or a local landmark. But what started as a game of one-upsmanship among groundskeepers has become something completely different at Petco Field, the home of the San Diego Padres. Earlier this season, fans were greeted by a large asterisk in centerfield for a homestand...

Stults silences Giants, Padres keep rolling

Baseball’s whims shined on the Padres once again Friday. Eric Stults, the rotation’s most beleaguered pitcher, flew through his finest performance of the season. Chase Headley, the offense’s most scrutinized member, went 4-for-4. Alexi Amarista’s second career home run at Petco Park arrived at a most convenient juncture. In a 2-0 Independence Day victory, the Padres opened...

10 Men Out…well, most of the time anyways

After back to back seasons in which the team went 76-86 in 2012 and 2013, there were very little changes made to the 2014 Opening Day offense. Weird, right? Now as we sit here on June 12th, the Padres are bad. Like really, really, really bad. Like you’d rather be violently ill than watch them swing a bat, bad. And in fact, FanGraphs even currently projects the Padres to finish...

Bud Black Trolls the NL

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...

My Huge Poll: Who’s Your All-Star?

It’s about a month left of All-Star voting.  And while I have no illusions of ANYONE from the Padres getting voted in by MLB fans as starters for the game (unlike the Padres, apparently), I was wondering who is/are the most deserving representative(s) for the team so far. No one player has really stood out to me.  Carlos Quentin missed the first month and a half of the season...

The Benefit Of The Doubt

On Saturday afternoon, four games into the start of the 2014 season, with the Padres on a three game losing streak that would increase to four before being snapped by Ian Kennedy and Alexi Amarista on Sunday, a tweet appeared on my Twitter feed that took me a little by surprise: His 4-game skid is him not trying hard enough? ~ @ctrop78: Time to drop Chase to 6th?

Pinch-hit homer helps Padres snap four-game losing streak

His offense reeling again as another right-handed power arm settled into deep groove, Bud Black had good reason to turn to the 5-foot-6 Alexi Amarista in the seventh inning Sunday afternoon. Some of it even had to do with matchup logic. All of it did actually, even if the Padres manager saw the irony in the moment. “Some guys were giving me a hard time – you always play a guy...

Things to Watch on Opening Night

Opening Night is here. The Padres host the Dodgers at 5 p.m. PT. A few items of potential interest: Andrew Cashner completed six innings in 21 of his 26 starts last year. The Padres won 13 of those 21 games. They lost all five in which he failed to go six. Andre Ethier and Adrián González have had the most success against Cashner, although both have done so in fewer than 15 plate...

Spend that Money, yo: International Amateurs

A few days ago Ben Badler of Baseball America wrote an article about the international spending by each major league team.

Similar to the Rule 4 amateur draft, the signing of international free-agents is a cheap avenue to explore when adding talent to...
