Padres 3, Dodgers 2: Defense Is Important

Before tonight’s game, I talked about PetCo Park being a potential boon to Dan Haren. And, for the most part, it was. But tonight’s game showed the value of defense as the Dodgers fell to the Padres by a score of 3-2 in 12 innings. So many things happened tonight, but we’ll start from the top. Dan Haren allowed two runs, but both of them were (partially) responsibility of the...

Dodgers 8, Padres 6: Ugly win is ugly, and Carl Crawford lives

The night started off poorly for the Dodgers, but the offense showed up to lead them to an 8-6 win over the Padres on Tuesday night. Kevin Correia served up a 3-run home run to Jedd Gyorko (hitting .199 at the time) to give San Diego an early 3-0 lead. It was vintage Correia, unfortunately. He wasn’t nearly as good as he was in his Dodgers’ debut, but he did enough to get the...

Jedd Gyorko is now the Padres all-time HR leader at 2B ... with 31

Every once in a while, I come across a stat that truly blows by mind. This is one of those stats: Jedd Gyorko, who made his MLB debut last season and has 31 homers in 199 career games, is now the Padres franchise leader in home runs by a second baseman. The Padres have been around since 1969. You know that, right? I didn't believe this when I read it at first -- maybe an intern...

Gyorko brings thunder in Padres rain-soaked win over Cardinals

As the rain began to fall Saturday night, Jedd Gyorko found himself in a familiar position as he walked to the plate in the seventh inning at Busch Stadium: The bases were loaded and he was all alone in the batter’s box for the seventh time in a little over a week. Déjà vu? Not exactly. This time, Gyorko chased reliever Kevin Siegrist’s 94 mph fastball over the wall in left...

Daily DraftKings Picks: Friday, Aug 15

Yesterday’s late-game lineup was constructed from an extremely small set of six games. It scored 124.50 points and finished in the 82nd percentile of all Moonshot entries. Originally I thought it was going to be a big day as Adam LaRoche, Bryce Harper, and Jhonny Peralta all homered in their first at-bats, but after combining for 48 points in those three at-bats the trio contributed...

View From The Left Coast

It’s no surprise to anyone reading this that the Padres offense is historically bad. And while I continue to await a regression to the mean, the further into the season we go the more I’m concerned that this simply is the mean.
