    Padres Bullpen Falters in 1st Loss of 2020

    The Padres were the last team in Major League Baseball with a chance to start the season 3-0. They came up two inning shy of doing it. San Diego built one of the best bullpens in baseball but it had a rare off day, letting a late lead get away in a 4-3 loss to the Arizona Diamondbacks for their…

    Padres Beat Diamondbacks, Sit Alone in 1st Place

    On Opening Day the Padres used their preferred formula to win a game: solid effort from the starting pitcher (6.0 scoreless innings from Chris Paddack), timely hits to build a mid-game lead (six RBI from Eric Hosmer), turn the ball over to one of the best bullpens in baseball to lock it down (final score 7-2). I see a pattern…

    Loyal SC Gets 1st Home Win, Stays in 1st Place

    Watching San Diego Loyal SC hosting Las Vegas Lights FC on Saturday night it took a second to realize something was a little bit off.

    Coronavirus Mutes East Village's Buzz for Padres Opening Day

    Major League Baseball returned to San Diego’s East Village Friday. An eerily quiet East Village. Only the sound of preprogrammed electronic crowd noise and the occasional crack of the bat could be heard echoing from an empty Petco Park. Opening Day for the San Diego Padres usually begins hours before the first pitch with faithful fans gathered insi...

    Padres Ready for 2020 But Miss the Friar Faithful

    Opening Day for the 2020 baseball season at Petco Park was delayed by 17 weeks and one day. Even when the Friars were awful (and everyone knew it) the first game of the season was a sellout and, win or lose, a celebration in the East Village. Add in the fact Major League Baseball has expanded the playoffs to include…
