Thursday Links (11 Aug 11)

Despite Kyle Blanks having his string of multi-hit games snapped at five (he singled and walked), Wednesday was a good day for the Padres. Will Venable knocked four hits out of the leadoff spot, Jesus Guzman drove in his 30th run to pull within two of active team leader Jason Bartlett (Cameron Maybin also has [...]

Retrosnort: In the Merry Merry Month of May

Inspired by the Padres’ 7-0 victory over the Dodgers at Chavez Ravine on Sunday, reader LynchMob offers the following suggestion: Hey, GY, dust off some of the “May” stories from a couple of years ago when the Padres were unbeatable in May … let’s do that again!

Mailbag: On Lineup Construction

We had some good discussion about possible lineups for the 2011 Padres in last week’s open thread. Several suggestions were made regarding specific order, but a few “big picture” comments caught my attention.

Me, Elsewhere: What if the Padres Had Drafted Travis Fryman?

The second installment of my “Reimagining the 1987 draft” series is up at Hardball Times. In our alternate reality, the Padres don’t take Texas right-hander Kevin Garner with the 10th pick overall, choosing instead Florida high schooler Travis Fryman. In this scenario, Fryman would have been the Padres’ third baseman during the Ken Caminiti years [...]

He Could Have Been the Second Best Pitcher Named ‘Whitson’ in Padres History

Given further time to reflect on the Karsten Whitson situation, I’d like to expand on my initial thoughts. First off, it still stinks that Whitson isn’t a member of the Padres today. I’m sure all of us, with the possible exception of the player and his agent, would agree on that. According to Corey Brock’s [...]

Once Upon My Mind: Fire Sales and Other Things That Didn’t Quite Happen

No time for original content, so grab a companion and hop in the Tardis as we travel back through time… Did Somebody Report a Fire Sale? (July 25, 1999) The bottom line is this: The 1999 Padres aren’t as good as the 1998 club (which was better than it “should” have been), but it’s doubtful [...]
