MLB08: The Show (Video Game Review)

Sony PlayStation 3, $59.99 Sony PlayStation 2, $39.99 (reviewed on this system) Sony PSP, $39.99 Before we get started, you need to know my bias: I grew up on Intellivision and Atari 2600. As such, all else being equal, I prefer simplicity in my video games. Also, I don’t play nearly as many of them [...]

IGD: Padres @ Dodgers (11 Apr 08)

Padres (5-5) @ Dodgers (4-5) Jake Peavy vs Brad Penny 7:40 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 185 MLB, B-R Jake dominated the Dodgers last weekend in San Diego. Perhaps more importantly, he seems to have gotten into their heads with Smudgegate. Here’s hoping he can work that to his advantage.

Friday Links (11 Apr 08)

Quick reminder: The Ducksnorts 2008 Baseball Annual is on sale. People tell me it doesn’t suck, so go buy a copy or three. To the links… Jake Peavy has a mysterious substance on his hand (Yahoo!, h/t Kevin) and suddenly the “national” media knows where San Diego is. Solid effort, guys. Love this quote from [...]

Padres Farm Report (7 Apr 08)

Before we get to the minor leagues, a few ruminations on the weekend’s activities at Petco: Jake Peavy spun a masterpiece on Saturday. Bugs and Cranks thinks he may be doctoring the baseball. With any luck, word will get back to opposing hitters, and they can have one more thing on their minds when they [...]

IGD: Padres vs Dodgers (6 Apr 08)

Padres (4-2) vs Dodgers (3-2) Chris Young vs Derek Lowe 1:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 189 MLB, B-R So, I’m thinking Jake Peavy should have his number retired more often.

IGD: Padres vs Dodgers (5 Apr 08)

Padres (3-2) vs Dodgers (3-1) Jake Peavy vs Brad Penny 12:55 p.m. PT FOX AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 185 MLB, B-R I’m pleased with what I’ve seen so far from Randy Wolf and Justin Germano. Small sample? Yep. Petco Park? Yep. Hey, I said “pleased,” not “deliriously happy.” Peavy makes his first start since [...]

Storm Retire Peavy’s Number

After watching the Padres defeat Houston at Petco on Thursday afternoon (thanks to reader Lance for hooking us up with tickets), Mrs. Ducksnorts and I drove to Lake Elsinore to see the Storm’s opener for 2008. Before the game, the Storm retired Jake Peavy’s number 22. Peavy was presented with a key to the city; [...]

IGD: Padres vs Astros (31 Mar 08)

Padres (0-0) vs Astros (0-0) Jake Peavy vs Roy Oswalt 7:05 p.m. PT Channel 4SD AM 1090, FM 105.7, XM 184 MLB, B-R It’s beginning to look a lot like Opening Day. What better time to bust out an esoteric table: Jake Peavy: 2007 Starts by Percentage of Pitches for Strikes Str/Pit GS IP/GS H/9 [...]

Friday Links (28 Mar 08)

Is it my imagination, or are these weekly link roundups becoming a tad unwieldy? Would it be better to do a link post every day or two (not as a substitute for my normal daily thing, but in addition to it)? Let me know what you think… Mike Bauman at Padres.com notes that Jake Peavy [...]

The Year Jake Peavy Turned Hitters into Matt Walbeck

I recently picked up the Bill James Gold Mine 2008. There’s tons of great stuff in here, as you’d expect, but two items in particular have captured my imagination (so far): the “record of opposing batters” James presents for certain pitchers, and the “comps” he offers of team batting records to individual career batting records [...]
