Winning is so much more fun than losing, n’est ce pas? Every starter except Jim Edmonds and Chris Young collected at least one hit on Wednesday in the Padres’ 4-2 victory over Philadelphia at Citizens Bank Park. Tadahito Iguchi broke out of a season-long slump with four hits, while Adrian Gonzalez and Kevin Kouzmanoff each [...]
Padres (10-17) @ Phillies (15-12) Chris Young vs Jamie Moyer 4:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 185 MLB, B-R Is it May yet?
Padres (9-13) vs Giants (9-13) Chris Young vs Tim Lincecum 7:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 189 MLB, B-R With the usual small-sample caveats, I’ve noticed a few trouble spots in the early going. We’ll focus on one of those today. For all the talk about lack of timely hitting, the [...]
Padres (8-9) vs D’backs (12-4) Chris Young vs Edgar Gonzalez 5:10 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 183 MLB, B-R The Padres need to recall Adrian Gonzalez‘s older brother from Portland and stick him in the lineup for this one. How cool would it be to see two different sets of namesakes [...]
Yeah, it’s Friday, but we’ve got something way cooler than links. We’ve got Jim McLennan, of AZ Snakepit fame, with us, and he’s going to give us the dirt on this year’s Diamondbacks. Ducksnorts: I picked Arizona to win the NL West in 2007 on the strength of its good young position players. The team [...]
Padres (6-5) vs Dodgers (4-6) Chris Young vs Derek Lowe 7:10 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 185 MLB, B-R Should we abandon our hope that Young will ever learn to work more efficiently and just accept him for what he is — a flawed, but damn good pitcher?
Padres (4-2) vs Dodgers (3-2) Chris Young vs Derek Lowe 1:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 189 MLB, B-R So, I’m thinking Jake Peavy should have his number retired more often.
I’ve been advised that dwindling attendance at Petco Park shouldn’t worry me. This, of course, only worries me more. It’s early, and this may all be in my head, but I don’t think so. The ballpark was dead (heck, the entire Gaslamp was dead) on Tuesday night. It’s possible that 20,825 bought tickets, but there’s [...]
Padres (1-0) vs Astros (0-1) Chris Young vs Brandon Backe 7:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 184 MLB, B-R I’m getting in late on this, but big congratulations to Ducksnorts friend Ed Barnes on taking over as producer for Padres telecasts (h/t Friar Forecast) at Channel 4SD. Among many other things, [...]
