The Duck Stops Here

We shall not cease from exploration And the end of all our exploring Will be to arrive where we started And know the place for the first time -T.S. Eliot As another season draws to a close, so does another year of following the Padres at Ducksnorts. And while our favorite baseball team will return [...]

Padres Bloggers Unite!

The good folks at RJ’s Fro have put together an event that promises to be like no other. Really, when you think about it, are any two events identical? Anyway, here are the vitals: Sunday, April 3, 10:30 a.m – 4 p.m. Randy Jones All American Sports Grill 7510 Hazard Center Dr. Suite 215 San [...]

Site Non-update

Last month my web hosting company apparently went out of business without telling anyone. Repeated attempts to contact them have been unsuccessful, but if you’re interested in the sordid details, a fellow refugee has documented the situation. Apart from the drama, this is where we stand: I managed to back up my database a few [...]


Hi there, Ducksnorts is broken. I’m working to fix it, but there is no timetable. With luck, we’ll be back up and running by the end of the year. In the meantime, you can read my stuff at The Hardball Times and Baseball Prospectus. Thanks, Geoff

Takin’ a Break

Life is good, but there’s a little too much of it right now so I’m taking some time off. Ducksnorts will resume publication after the All-Star break. In the meantime, I’ll continue to publish at Hardball Times and Unfiltered. Also, if you do the Twittter thing, I sometimes offer witty/insightful/stupid comments during games. Feel free [...]

Geoff’s Publishing Schedule for 2009

Thing is, writing the 2009 Annual took a lot out of me. So does writing software documentation 40 hours a week. Life is good; I’ve got no complaints or regrets. That said, you deserve to know why I’m scaling back production this year. Here’s the plan for 2009: Monday: Ducksnorts Tuesday: Baseball Daily Digest Thursday [...]

Links for 13 Feb 09

It occurs to me that I haven’t provided a book update in a while. We’re getting real close. I’m doing some last-minute rewrites on one of the chapters, and this weekend Mrs. Ducksnorts and I will edit the whole beast. Then I just need to create the subject index and finalize the cover, so if [...]

Blast from the Past: Arizona Dreamin’

I usually make one or two trips out to Phoenix each year. Spring training has become a must, and I always enjoy taking in some Arizona Fall League games. Today, we’re all about the AFL… and whatever else happened to come with it on a particular journey… and whatever else that triggers in my mind, [...]

Chatting with Dirk Hayhurst, Redux

Just before the season ended, we had a chance to speak with former Padres right-hander/writer Dirk Hayhurst. In the two weeks since, he has gotten married and become a member of the Toronto Blue Jays. We recently caught up with Dirk to chat about these latest life changes and what the future may bring. Ducksnorts: [...]

We’ll See You When We See You

The season is over. Thank goodness for that. The Padres played brutal baseball for most of 2008, and fans were in a pretty sour mood all year. Unfortunately I let the negativity get to me more than I should have. I suppose it’s safe to admit this now, because I no longer feel it’s likely [...]
