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

    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 […]

    The San Diego Padres suck.  One quick glance at the bottom of the MLB standings will prove that fact, as their 24-46 record is the worst among all teams in the Majors.  Needless to say, they can probably afford to try just about anything to help turn their season around and improve attendance numbers (they […]

    Unaware Fan Hit In The Neck By Home Run Ball (Video)

    Watching balls fly into the stands at high speeds is all part of the game of baseball.  As a result, you will find plenty of signs around every Major League stadium reminding fans to “be aware of objects leaving the field of play.” Coincidentally, one man present at Petco Park for yesterday’s game between the […]

    Nick Hundley Takes A Spill Into The Photo Well (Update w/ Video)

    His sacrifice may not have been as great as the one made by soccer player Julian Velazquez. However, when you consider the fact that Nick Hundley is playing for a San Diego Padres team that is 20 games under .500 and only one loss away from being mathematically eliminated from the playoffs in just the […]

    Cirque du Soliel Performer Throws Out Opening Pitch (Video)

    When an opening pitch earns a spot on the nightly highlight package, nine times out of ten it is for all the wrong reasons.  But when we are treated to that other one-out-of-ten, it can be quite remarkable.  Take last night’s game between the Kansas City Royals and the San Diego Padres at Petco Park, […]

    5 MLB Teams Whose Seasons Are Already Over

    Baseball is a game that moves slowly and deliberately throughout the season. I mean, when you have 162 games to play, there really isn’t any other way to move. When you’re in the top spot, it affords you the ability to relax and tweak your style should any serious threats emerge. If you’re in the […]

    How About Showing Some Effort Next Time? (Video)

    Here is a look at the laziest, most uninterested fan you will ever see at a ballgame. This effort may be even poorer than the one we saw from the Camden Yards security a few months ago.  All he had to do was extend his arm a little more, or maybe even lift his ass […]

    The Stat Line of the Night — 9/21/10 — Clayton Richard

    San Diego is in a tight race to win the division right now.  The NL West is completely up for grabs, as the Giants are clinging to a half game lead and it looks like it could come down to the last day of the season.  With that as the backdrop, hopes were not high […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/14/10 – John Buck

    The Blue Jays have played very well through the first half of the season, but that doesn’t mean they aren’t immune to some odd situations.  Last night was one of those.  While John Buck brought his big bat and created some thunder from above, the Jays also felt something odd going on beneath their feet. […]

    The Stat Line of the Night – 6/7/10 – Adrian Gonzalez

    The Phillies and Padres were deadlocked in a 0-0 tie last night in the 7th inning.  Cole Hamels, the Phillies ace, was looking as dominant as ever.  He was carrying a no-hitter into the 7th and even though his team could not score a run, it seemed fairly certain they would win with Hamels looking […]
