Friday Links (31 Aug 07)

My wife and I went to Del Mar on Thursday. First time I’d been to the track in years. I studied the horses, jockeys, and trainers to the best of my limited ability and proceeded to lose every race I bet on. My wife hit a 30-1 longshot in the third race. She liked the [...]

Hey, I Can See First Place from Here

Fun win Tuesday night (box score). They’re all fun, though, aren’t they? Justin Germano wasn’t brilliant, but he didn’t have to be because the offense came through against defending Cy Young award winner Brandon Webb.

When Is Zero Greater Than Sixteen?

The story was supposed to be Jake Peavy‘s 16 strikeouts and complete dominance. The story was supposed to be Terrmel Sledge‘s opposite field home run off sinkerballer Brandon Webb. The story was supposed to be anything but what it became. It’s a credit to the Padres’ bullpen that a two-run lead headed to the eighth [...]

Speaking of pitchers, the Padres are back down to a [...]

A Lot Can Go Wrong in a Game

I don’t have the heart to watch this one a second time on TiVo, so we’ll have to rely on my impressions of Wednesday night’s game (recap | box score) as viewed from the upper deck. Scary proposition, I know, but there it is. David Wells pitched a beautiful game. Honestly, I don’t know that [...]
