A debunking? Moi? Why, I’d love to give it a go… Reader Peter Thomas writes: I keep reading on message boards and hearing on Hacksaw [San Diego radio personality Lee Hamilton] “react to me” that the Padres are constantly trading away All-Star players and that there’s no reason to root for a team that is [...]

What Do You Want from Ducksnorts?
I’m trying to come up with a game plan for 2011 and I need your help. What do you want to see here this year? Game recaps? Analysis? Snark? Minor-league coverage? Interviews? Chats? Question marks? Give me some feedback. Otherwise, you’ll be stuck with another year of whatever the heck it is I’ve been doing.
Friday Links (22 Oct 10)

I actually vented in three parts: Part 1 includes [...]
Trade for Catcher in the Works?
Clearing off the ol’ desk real quick. Enjoy… A reader alerted me to these two articles over at Prospectus where Jonah Keri interviews Padre GM Kevin Towers. As usual, Towers is pretty candid and it’s a good read. The reader who sent this also noted, “He [Towers] says he’s working on a trade for a [...]
Giving Away Phillips
What the heck, I haven’t done a good rant in a while. Okay, there was the Junior Seau riff the other day but when you get down to it, that was just football. So, if you missed it, the Pads acquired Rondell White from the Yankees. Yep, Kevin Towers finally found a taker for Bubba [...]
