Padres Public Plans a Takeover of Fox Sports San Diego

It’s going to be a big week  for Padres Public next week. 7 of the 13 members of the group will be heading out to Peoria for some Spring Training action and with that will come a ton of pictures, analysis, scouting, videos and there will be very little bobblehead talk (sorry). We also have a bunch of special things planned during our time out there. Make sure you follow us on...

The Reason Mickelson bailed on Padres Ownership

Last year, Mickelson flirted with becoming a part-owner of the San Diego Padres franchise, which sold for $800 million in August.

New Hat Idea

I know alot of people were disappointed with the new uniforms last year.  But, I was in the minority and thought they were not too bad at all, especially if they keep them for a while and establish the look.  As I was looking for some Christmas present ideas in the Padres store, I saw a New Era hat that I think the Padres should adopt as their new road hats.   It is the Gray...

I've Got a Flair...for Willie Blair

The Padres recently just added Willie Blair to the coaching staff.  Now, I really don't have a "flair", but it is good to see the Padres keep ex-players in the coaching ranks.  I also love the band Fountains of Wayne, so the announcemet, for some reason, made me think of their song "I've Got A Flair".   Anyway, it also brings back fond memories of...

PadSquadnam Style!!

When it comes to the amount of love for the Pad Squad, I probably rank a distant 2nd behind jbox of Gaslamp Ball on the Love-O-Meter. Dude loves him some Pad Squad and the Pad Squad also loves them some jbox. But that gap might have closed a bit after this video because there's no way he loves this thing more than me. Check out this video of them dancing to Gangnam Style. I&...

New owners, I love you

I'm kind of confused about all the "outrage" I've been seeing regarding yesterday's press conference announcing the new owners. Most of it is from the media though because, well the new owners didn't really say much. I returned to the office just in time to catch the tail end of the conference on TV and here are my thoughts, as a fan....   "We...

Trade Chase Headley!!!

Josh Byrnes is a very confusing dude. Carlos Quentin the hottest trade chip out there? Screw that, he signs him to an extension to the 2015 season. The "experts" say, "OK, OK, we'll give you the Quentin signing since he's a hometown guy, but seriously, Josh you have to trade Huston Street. He's injury prone and why would this horrible team need to spend...

The Dodgers are to blame for KStew cheating on RPatz? I'm not surprised.

If you are anything like me, you are obviously pretty broken hearted over this whole KStew cheating on RPatz thing. I haven't been able to eat for weeks. I've barely slept a wink. People may confuse me with that of a homeless person, as I haven't showered or shaved in weeks. WHY KSTEW!?!?! WHY!?!?! There had to be more to this! They seemed like such a happy (horrible...
