We watched Mat Latos’ season debut from Section 301. The stadium scoreboard had his fastball at 92-96 mph, and he mostly located his pitches well. Two exceptions came in the fifth inning. First, he got ahead of no. 8 hitter Paul Janish and couldn’t put him away. Then, after opposing starter Edinson Volquez failed to [...]

Pity About the Padres Offense (Non-Ironic Remix)
I jinxed the Padres with the title of Sunday’s article. Because, you know, I have that kind of power. And this is the best use I can find for it. You’d think something of greater consequence might be in order, but no… I’m all about writing headlines that inspire their subject to negate said headlines. [...]
Pity About the Padres Offense
The Padres made Jake Westbrook work hard on Saturday in St. Louis. The veteran right-hander used 89 pitches and didn’t survive the fifth inning. Five walks helped. Three of those five walks came around to score.
More Notes from Peoria
We got a late start on Saturday and didn’t arrive at the ballpark until 12:30 p.m., which meant missing all the morning practices. We sat in Section 119, up along the foul line in left field — close to the action but at a severe angle. The Cubs had come to Peoria and so had [...]

Cleaning off the metaphorical desk… Cajon Speedway Track History (Tracks Back When). Who knew the old Cajon Speedway was supposed to be a baseball facility for a Detroit Tigers farm club back in the day? You did, that’s who! Veteran Gerut announces his retirement (MLB.com). Good on former Padres center fielder Jody Gerut for realizing [...]
Breakouts, Newcomers, and Off-Season Moves
We had an open thread here on Friday, and I learned a lot. First, I learned that open threads are fun, so we’ll be doing more in the future; they may become a semi-regular feature. Second, I got some insightful answers to the questions I posed…

I picked up a copy of Craig Wright and Tom House’s classic The Diamond Appraised last night… found it at a YMCA book sale, of all places…
No Offense in Houston, Plenty in San Antonio
by Geoff Young on Apr 15, 2011 (9) Comments
I missed Thursday night’s loss in Houston. Apparently so did the Padres. My excuse was day job and taxes. Theirs was… Dustin Moseley on the mound? The Padres have been shut out in all three of his starts this season. According to the Elias Sports Bureau, Moseley is just the third pitcher since 1972 to [...]
