Last time Maddux faced the Phillies, he beat his old (and I do mean old) teammate, Jamie Moyer, 14-3 at Citizens Bank Park last August. Milton Bradley knocked two homers, drove in six, and told the fans in Philly, “I am that good.”

He didn’t stay in San Diego long, but Bradley is one of my all-time favorite Padres. I miss Jenga…

  1. Ted Leitner just came on the radio and said the wind at Citizens Bank is blowing straight out and that the “flags look like they are made out of cardboard”. Looks like Mad Dog might have a rough time trying to get 350 yet again.

  2. Jenga also called Citizens Bank Park “a joke” because of one of his HR’s haha

  3. few of those pitches looked like strikes to me

  4. These are bad times for Padre fans. Down by one in the first, and the game is over.

  5. Werth didn’t even break a sweat getting to 3rd.

  6. Werth was almost a Padre too. Damn.

  7. Can they leave Hairston in Center and get rid of Edmonds? At least Scotty can run.

  8. Spectacular grab by Hairston. Yeah, he looks o.k defensively in center.

  9. #6@JP: For the record, Werth is the only MLB player ever to flip me off…

    He was a Dodger…we were heckling…I said something about his play and he flipped me off…

  10. Nice pop for Scotty there!

  11. #9@Coronado Mike: You were heckling? I’m shocked… just shocked.

  12. #9@Coronado Mike: I have heard a lot of similar stories.

  13. Alright, cheerleaders!

  14. I can’t remember the last time I saw this few comments during a televised game.

  15. #11@dprat: I was in college.

    I may be a bit snarky now, but not out loud like that anymore.

    No, really…stop laughing.

  16. I miss Jenga too. I miss his hustle and his bat in the lineup. I miss his musk…

    Man, Maddux is pitching well tonight. I love to see his 2-seamer running inside to RH and over the inside corner to lefties like it is tonight. Let’s get him 350 Padres!

  17. #16@Paul R.: His musk?

  18. Kinda OT – Oscar Robles was claimed off Waivers from Philly. I kinda liked watching him here in Portland.

  19. Well, this game looks like it is also going in the tank. I’m getting sick of people at work asking me ‘what’s wrong with the Padres?’

  20. Nice Scotty! And we keep Edmonds around because?…

  21. I’m just praying that OG doesn’t hit into a DP this at bat.

  22. Now, here’s where they always eff-up. Bases loaded and one out.
    (where’s my avatar?)

  23. timed to get pissed off, padre hitters. Anger can take you a long way, trust me.

  24. Just can’t capitalize on a bases loaded situation. This should at least be a tied game right now.

  25. Of course, it would have been a bit much for Iguchi to deliver a big base hit there. Locate your curve and he’s an out every time. He swings his way into the ground like a whirling dervish.

  26. If it were Edmonds out there, that would have been a stand up triple.

  27. We might have a chance next inning if Black puts Jake in to pinch hit. :)

  28. Feliz (a dead pull hitter) goes opposite field and gets the insurance run back. Good night all.

  29. Could this team be any worse?
