The Reason Mickelson bailed on Padres Ownership?

Last year, Mickelson flirted with becoming a part-owner of the San Diego Padres franchise, which sold for $800 million in August. He was asked Sunday whether there was a correlation between the tax increases and what happened to the Padres' deal. "Absolutely," Mickelson said.   In November of 2012 Prop 30 was passed in the […]

New Hat Idea

I know alot of people were disappointed with the new uniforms last year.  But, I was in the minority and thought they were not too bad at all, especially if they keep them for a while and establish the look.  As I was looking for some Christmas present ideas in the Padres store, I saw […]

I’ve Got a Flair…for Willie Blair

The Padres recently just added Willie Blair to the coaching staff.  Now, I really don’t have a “flair”, but it is good to see the Padres keep ex-players in the coaching ranks.  I also love the band Fountains of Wayne, so the announcemet, for some reason, made me think of their song “I’ve Got A […]

New owners, I love you

I’m kind of confused about all the “outrage” I’ve been seeing regarding yesterday’s press conference announcing the new owners. Most of it is from the media though because, well the new owners didn’t really say much. I returned to the office just in time to catch the tail end of the conference on TV and […]

Headley

Trade Chase Headley!!!

Josh Byrnes is a very confusing dude. Carlos Quentin the hottest trade chip out there? Screw that, he signs him to an extension to the 2015 season. The “experts” say, “OK, OK, we’ll give you the Quentin signing since he’s a hometown guy, but seriously, Josh you have to trade Huston Street. He’s injury prone […]

Mat Latos, #balls & #thebet

Remember about 20 years ago, when Mat Latos was playing for the Padres & he signed those baseballs “I hate SF!”? Of course you do. Remember how Giants Nirvana (formerly Splashing Pumpkins) had issues with the #balls and my posts? Perhaps you do. Remember how him & I made a bet regarding the 2011 season […]

RPatzKStew

The Dodgers are to blame for KStew cheating on RPatz? I’m not surprised.

If you are anything like me, you are obviously pretty broken hearted over this whole KStew cheating on RPatz thing. I haven’t been able to eat for weeks. I’ve barely slept a wink. People may confuse me with that of a homeless person, as I haven’t showered or shaved in weeks. WHY KSTEW!?!?! WHY!?!?! There […]

ESPN’s Crappy Coverage of the Home Run Derby‏

Monday nights’ MLB All-Star game Homerun Derby was on millions of television sets across the world, but the coverage was anything but professional.  The self proclaimed “Leader In Sports” ESPN once again televised the home run derby with announcers John Kruk (former Padre), Nomar Garciaparra, and the relic Chris Berman.  Back when Berman started doing […]
