Busy, busy, busy…

Most Commented Posts

On another note, someone was asking about this the other day; here are the top 5 non-IGD threads at Ducksnorts:

  1. Blum, Bocachica, and a Slice of History (June 7, 2007)
  2. Jake the Efficient (September 27, 2007)
  3. Padres Poised to Pop Pitcher (June 6, 2006)
  4. Till It Hurts, Kiddo (September 27, 2006)
  5. Padres, Mets Swap Spare Parts (November 16, 2006)

I love that our fifth most heavily commented thread ever came in November. We are such geeks. ;-)

I’ve also been reminded of an old thread about which ballparks we’ve visited. I’ll need to update my list to include the parks I stopped by on the way to Cooperstown this summer. Feel free to hop on over and add your own if the spirit moves you.

And as always, we’ve got a boatload o’ links at Happy reading…

  1. If ’08 is the last year in a Padres uniform for Hoffman, OG, and Maddux, then there will be money available to sign Peavy to fair-market 3 or 4 year deal. Jake should be the face of the franchise after Hoffy retires, from the typical fans’ perspective, and I think the FO knows that, too. Sign him to the deal, and you have the option of trading him later if he starts to significantly decline or the team really starts to suck.

  2. #102 & 103

    Treating “crabs” (it’s a supposedly “tight” clubhouse)?

  3. 102, 103

    Excellent! I’ll be sending that to my Yankee-loving friends on Monday. Good ol’ A Rod — you can always count on him for a few dumb laughs!

  4. Turning to rugby World Cup, the All Blacks lost to France. Ouch!

  5. Re: 106 bleh

    Go Wallabies! But I think im going to root for Argentina, its kind of cool to see a non power house making some noise in the world cup. It gives the US a little hope for years to come.

  6. 107: Except the Wallabies lost to England.

    The best thing about the All Blacks losing is that everyone at work will know how I felt on Tuesday….

  7. 109: Pretty lame, on both sides. We do a better job debating that question of Trevor done or not.
