Monthly Roundtable: June 2007

Welcome to the latest edition of the Ducksnorts monthly roundtable. Participants this time include Anthony Trifiletti (Friar Watch), Peter Friberg (various; currently covering prospects here at Ducksnorts under the title “Padres Prospect Report”), Jim Higgins (FriarBall), John Conniff and Denis Savage (, a webzine that covers the Padres’ minor leagues), Larry Brown (AOL FanHouse), and [...]

Two Points of Rage, Please

I’m more than a little furious about Tuesday night’s loss (recap | box score), but I’ve got a monthly roundtable to finish, so I’ll distill my rage into two points: It is public knowledge that Greg Maddux tends to implode after five innings (opponents are batting .333/.351/.632 against him from the sixth on) or 75 [...]

IGD: Padres vs Marlins (2 Jul 07)

Game #81 time: 7:05 p.m. PT tv: 4SD sp: David Wells (3-5, 4.48) vs Sergio Mitre (2-3, 2.75) pre:, Welcome to the midway point of the season. After Monday’s night’s contest against the Marlins, the Padres will have played exactly half of their regular-season schedule. They are assured of at least a share [...]

IGD: Padres @ Giants (27 Jun 07)

Game #76 time: 12:35 p.m. PT tv: none sp: Greg Maddux (6-4, 3.84) vs Matt Cain (2-8, 3.46) pre:, How did David Wells and Greg Maddux end up back-to-back in the rotation again? I thought we agreed that the bullpen can’t afford that. The good news is that the Padres are off Thursday, [...]

IGD: Padres @ Giants (26 Jun 07)

Game #76 time: 7:15 p.m. PT tv: 4SD sp: David Wells (3-5, 4.71) vs Barry Zito (6-8, 4.83) pre:, I’m starting to wonder if maybe Dex is onto something with his fire sale idea. I’ll take it a step further and recommend that the Padres position the PCL for an immediate transfer to [...]

IGD: Padres vs Orioles (21 Jun 07)

Game #71 time: 12:35 p.m. PT tv: none sp: David Wells (3-4, 4.86) vs Erik Bedard (4-4, 3.64) pre:, David Wells pitched for the Orioles in 1996. Went 11-14 with a 5.14 ERA. Wells’ teammates on that club included Hall of Famers Cal Ripken and Eddie Murray; Braves pitching coach Roger McDowell; San [...]

Bring on the Birds

The Orioles are coming to town and they are in a state of considerable disarray, which frightens me. It’s hard to say how a team will respond after its manager is fired, but with Sam Perlozzo no longer part of the picture ostensibly because his players failed to produce for him, these guys just might [...]

Another City, Another Series Win

Good to see the boys wrap up the road trip with a couple of wins in Chicago. Even better to see Mike Cameron playing well again. Since May 1, he’s batting .288/.341/.532. That’s more like it. The fight on Saturday? I’ll be honest; I hate that aspect of professional sports — nobody walks away from [...]

IGD: Padres @ Cubs (15 Jun 07)

Game #66 time: 11:20 a.m. PT tv: WGN sp: David Wells (3-3, 4.76) vs Ted Lilly (4-4, 3.96) pre:, The Cubs are a strange team. On the one hand, their current record and occasional love spats have to be viewed as disappointments in light of the nearly $300 million they spent on free [...]

Friday Links (15 Jun 07)

Ah, it’s nice to win a series again. This calls for some links… Germano’s savvy outing baffles Rays (North County Times). I’m finding my skepticism of Justin Germano increasingly difficult to justify. I love this quote from Tampa Bay manager Joe Maddon: Just get the Padres pitchers out of town. They can go wherever they [...]
