The Padres and Rockies hook up for the first time since that fateful Game 163 in Denver last October. I recently had a chance to chat with Rox Girl of the excellent Rockies blog Purple Row about her expectations for the 2008 season, the challenges of marketing a team that plays half its games west [...]
Padres (6-6) @ Dodgers (5-6) Greg Maddux vs Chad Billingsley 1:10 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 185 MLB, B-R Gee, Ward, don’t you think you were a little hard on the Beaver last night?
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 (3-1) vs Dodgers (2-1) Justin Germano vs Hideki Kuroda 7:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 184 MLB, B-R Battlestar Galactica finally returns tonight. I’m told that Jeff Kent is not the 12th Cylon, but with that show, you never know. Japanese import Hideki Kuroda makes his North American debut for [...]
