Seventeen Innings of Solitude

Another gut-wrenching loss on Sunday (recap | box score). For the third time in five starts, David Wells didn’t look sharp at all. His final line wasn’t horrible; then again, “wasn’t horrible” is hardly the standard by which starters on a contending team should be measured. To their credit, the Padres picked up Wells and [...]

Padres Drop Finale in LA, Hope Chicago Is Their Kind of Town

Strange series up at Dodger Stadium over the weekend. I expected tighter contests. Instead, one team’s starting pitcher failed to show up in each of the three games. Unfortunately for the Padres, it was their guy in two of those three. Sunday evening’s victim, Chris Young, never looked comfortable and needed 84 pitches to record [...]
