Learning to Drive

Hard to offer meaningful commentary on a game that wasn’t televised. I assume from the 10 runs and five homers that the offense performed well. Either that or Micah Owings pitched like… well, you get the idea. Padres at Ballhype As you know, I’ve been doing some work with Ballhype of late. Just wanted to [...]

Tied for First

The Padres are tied for first again after Wednesday night’s 3-1 victory over Arizona at Petco Park (box score). That’s nice, but let’s not get carried away just yet. Not to bring everyone down, but being in first place on August 30 isn’t the goal, it’s just a signpost along the highway. The Padres have [...]

Hey, I Can See First Place from Here

Fun win Tuesday night (box score). They’re all fun, though, aren’t they?

How the (NL) West Will Be Won

Fun weekend in Philadelphia. Fun road trip. Four out of six against two playoff contenders back east? Works for me. Now the boys return to Petco for a huge four-game series against Arizona. We can whine about the fact that the Diamondbacks are outperforming their Pythagorean record by 12 games or we can acknowledge the [...]
