Trade Deadline Post-Mortem

I was on the road while everything went down, so let’s take a look at what exactly happened… Tales from Cooperstown Okay, here’s the deal. My trip to Cooperstown totally kicked me in the posterior. Don’t get me wrong, it was the trip of a lifetime and I couldn’t be happier that I got to [...]

Young, Padres Too Good for This Headline

Wednesday night’s victory (recap | box score) was particularly gratifying in light of Tuesday’s meltdown. Chris Young? His usual dominant self. Thanks to seven scoreless innings, he now has the best ERA in the big leagues. Incidentally, you still have time to vote for Young for the All-Star game, and if the fact that he’s [...]

Eight series wins in a row? Really, I had no idea. Greg Maddux brought his A-game on Wednesday night (recap | boxscore), and Geoff Blum and Hiram Bocachica led the offense en route to a — Say what? Blum and Boca-who-ca? Yep. Blum drove in four runs on the evening, doubling his season total. All [...]

Two-Hit Wonder

For the second time this season, the Padres won despite collecting just two hits. Tuesday night’s contest (recap | boxscore) might not have been pretty, but last I checked, there aren’t any bonus points for style. Although Chris Young wasn’t at his best, he battled for seven innings and kept his team in the game. [...]

Monthly Roundtable: May 2007 (Part 1)

Last month we introduced a monthly roundtable in which several Padres bloggers offered their thoughts on the team. The response was so positive that we’re doing it a second time. Participants this month include Anthony Trifiletti (Friar Watch), Peter Friberg (various; currently covering prospects here at Ducksnorts under the title “Padres Prospect Report”), Jim Higgins [...]
