IGD: Padres vs Mets (18 Jul 07)

Game #93 time: 7:05 p.m. PT tv: 4SD sp: Greg Maddux (7-7, 4.35) vs John Maine (10-5, 2.91) pre: Padres.com, SI.com If you want to feel bad for a team, how about the Baltimore Orioles.

Left at Albuquerque

I’m staring at a blank screen, trying to think of things to say about Tuesday night’s loss (box score) that you don’t already know. “It sucked” doesn’t qualify, but that’s all I’ve got. On another note, we’re still brainstorming ideas for a Hall of Fame meetup. Keep the chatter going. Finally, I’m driving from San [...]

IGD: Padres vs Mets (17 Jul 07)

Game #92 time: 7:05 p.m. PT tv: 4SD sp: Jake Peavy (9-3, 2.19) vs Orlando Hernandez (5-4, 3.20) pre: Padres.com, SI.com I cannot begin to tell you how glad I am that the Diamondbacks traded Orlando Hernandez for Jorge Julio in May 2006. Sure, it made sense at the time, but Arizona could use Hernandez [...]

Coffee, Jazz, Victory

Got me some coffee in a mug, some Lionel Hampton on the radio, and a Padres win (box score) on my mind. Not bad for a Tuesday morning. Hall of Fame Meetup Tony Gwynn’s induction into Cooperstown is nigh upon us. As a reminder, we’re brainstorming ideas for a Hall of Fame meetup. Any and [...]

They’re batting .294/.352/.477 in innings 4-6 this year. Unfortunately for the Padres, David Wells tends to implode in the [...]

Weekend in the Desert

Shutting out the Diamondbacks on Sunday took some sting out of the weekend series. Saturday night’s game was particularly frustrating, but what can you do other than hope the bullpen holds next time out, which it did. Some positives: Adrian Gonzalez is starting to get his stroke back. The single and double on Sunday were [...]

1969: Koosman Dominates Padres Again

June 7, 1969, San Diego: Mets 4, Padres 1 (box score) As he had 10 days earlier at Shea Stadium, New York Mets left-hander Jerry Koosman dominated the Padres. This time, however, Koosman’s offense decided to participate. Johnny Podres made the start for San Diego. After working in and out of jams for much of [...]

1969: Padres Begin Long Spiral Downward with Loss at Home to Mets

June 6, 1969, San Diego: Mets 5, Padres 3 (box score) The Padres, fresh off a franchise-long six-game winning streak, returned home to face the New York Mets. Joe Niekro toed the slab for San Diego, while the visitors started rookie right-hander Gary Gentry. Taking advantage of Gentry’s wildness and his team’s shoddy defense, the [...]

Playoff IGD: Cardinals @ Mets (19 Oct 06)

first pitch: 5:19 p.m., PT television: FOX matchup: Jeff Suppan (12-7, 4.12 ERA) vs Oliver Perez (3-13, 6.55 ERA) buy tickets I would love to see the Mets send Albert Pujols and his tired act home for the winter, but Oliver Perez in Game 7? I guess if the Mets can score 12 runs again, [...]
