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. No matter what else happens this season, if we can beat the Mariners, it will have been a success. Right. [...]

Out with the Cards, In with the Reds

Do you suppose Phillies fans pine for Justin Germano the way some Padres fans pine for Jack Cust? After Sunday afternoon’s 3-0 victory over the St. Louis Cardinals (recap | box score), in which Germano shut down the defending World Series champions for seven innings and quite possibly earned himself a more permanent spot in [...]

Good Isn’t Good Enough

Tough loss Tuesday. Justin Germano comes up from Triple-A and pitches the game of his life, and the normally brilliant bullpen blows a late lead (recap | box score). Of course, if the batters could get a key hit every now and then, the bullpen wouldn’t be under such constant pressure to be brilliant all [...]

Padres Walk to Victory

I don’t mean to sound like a sore winner, but when you put 17 guys on base, you really need to score more than four runs. We’ll take the victory, of course, it’s just that this game shouldn’t have been close (recap | box score). Chris Young looked terrific, allowing just two runs over six [...]

How Virtuous Is Patience?

I needed a break from the Padres, so I trekked up to Elsinore to watch the Storm instead on Tuesday. I saw a good game, but it sounds like I missed an even better one (recap | box score). Although it’s hard to offer meaningful commentary on a game I didn’t see, I’m glad to [...]

Friday Links (27 Apr 07)

That was a frustrating series in Phoenix. After losing a heartbreaker on Wednesday, there didn’t seem to be a lot of energy Thursday night (recap | box score). Other than the Adrian Gonzalez three-run homer in the first, the Padres looked completely flat against Livan Hernandez and the Diamondbacks. Oh well, today’s another day. In [...]
