Kouz Control

Let’s start with the obvious: The Padres were lucky to win on Wednesday night (recap | boxscore). In a reversal of two recent losses in Atlanta, the Padres came away with a victory when they probably shouldn’t have. David Wells pitched another fine game at home (2.67 ERA in five starts at Petco Park this [...]

Lots of Lumber, a Little Ballet

For the second straight start, Jake Peavy worked extremely hard in the first inning and then settled down to pitch a good game. I’m mostly encouraged by this. It’s great that Peavy is showing the ability to pitch to contact; maybe next he can figure out how to do that out of the gate: Jake [...]

Padres Take Round One Against Rivals

Real-world stuff kept me from watching all but a few innings of this weekend’s heated series against our archrivals in Seattle, but it’s good that the Padres were able to take two out of three.

Friday Links (11 May 07)

Before we get to all the good stuff everyone else is doing, I have to call my own number and let you know about my latest article at The Hardball Times, in which we discover that Adrian Gonzalez is real good. Yeah, you and I already knew that, but the rest of the world needs [...]
