Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Good Bye

There’s about a month and a half remaining in the 2014 Padres’ season.  Barring a miracle of biblical proportions, the Friars will not be playing in the postseason.  Sorry, folks.  It has to be said.  But I think you all know that.  Well, most of you do anyway. New GM A.J. Preller has some interesting decisions to make on players in the offseason.  Do the Padres stand...

Cardinals tag a loss on Padres

The Cardinals’ Mike Matheny has the worst record for challenges by a manager this season, losing 15 of 20 official appeals. But he won a challenge he didn’t even make Thursday night as the Cardinals held on to beat the San Diego Padres, 4-3, before a sellout house of 45,126 at Busch Stadium.

Amarista, Smith save Padres' win over Twins

As a rule, Bud Black doesn’t doubt his players. Yet off the bat, the Padres’ upbeat skipper wasn’t sure what sort of chance Alexi Amarista would have at catching Eduardo Escobar’s two-strike drive with the winning run standing on second base in the last of the ninth inning Wednesday afternoon. Positioning sure wasn’t on the diminutive utilityman’s side. “Off the bat...

Alexi Amarista Robs The Twins Of A Win With This Over-The-Shoulder Catch

Alexi Amarista apparently isn’t one of the slow baseball players out there. In the ninth innning today, Amarista saved the game for the Padres by making this fantastic running catch in centerfield. Your browser does not support iframes. The Padres would go on to win the game in the 10th inning. Since neither team is in a position to seriously contend, this catch doesn’t really...

Padres sweep Braves

A week of change for the Padres – change in personnel, change in attitude, at least a temporary change in fortunes at the plate and in the win column – came to an end Sunday. One thing they definitely do not want to change, though. That Sunday thing at Petco Park. For the third time this season, the Padres won a Sunday home game with a walk-off win, this time a 4-3 triumph...

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...

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...
