    Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn Dead at 54

    Baseball has lost one of it’s greatest living players. Hall of Famer Tony Gwynn, one of the best pure hitters of all time, succumbed to cancer on Monday morning at the age of 54. Gwynn may have never hit more than 17 home runs in a single-season, but he hit .328 for his career, amassing […]

    Dinosaur Throws Out First Pitch at Padres Game (GIFs + Video)

    So, this is going to sound crazy, but at a Padres game on Wednesday they had a dinosaur throwing out the first pitch. No, it wasn’t [CELEBRITY, ELDERLY], but an actual dinosaur—or at least a creepily realistic dinosaur suit. It’s so realistic, in fact, that it took me a good minute and a half before I realized […]

Cashner was absolutely incredible against the Pittsburgh Pirates, as he allowed just one hit and no walks while striking […]

    This Brawl Made Preseason Baseball at the Alamodome Less Boring (Video)

    Last weekend, just before the regular 2013 MLB season began, the Texas Rangers and San Diego Padres played a couple of exhibition games in a very interesting location: the Alamodome in San Antonio. If you’re familiar with the Alamodome then you’re probably thinking, “hey, that’s not big enough for a baseball field, is it?” And […]

    Stat Line Of The Night — 7/19/12 — Edinson Volquez

    With an MLB-low 337 runs scored on the season, the San Diego Padres’ pitching staff knows that every game they go into, they aren’t likely to get a whole lot of run support.  That was certainly the case for Padres starter Edinson Volquez last night, as his team could only manage four hits and one […]
