    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)

    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 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 […]

  • The Stat Line of the Night – 4/27/10 – Josh Johnson

    The Stat Line of the Night – 4/27/10 – Josh Johnson

    The San Diego Padres did not seem like a good team on paper coming into this season.  Somehow, by some miracle, they managed to pull off an 8-game winning streak.  Unfortunately for them the trip back to earth has been a rather quick and humiliating one.  After losing to the Reds two nights ago, they […]

  • Padres Edgar Gonzalez Nailed In Head By A Jason Hammel Pitch

    Padres Edgar Gonzalez Nailed In Head By A Jason Hammel Pitch

    Total Pro Sports – It is perhaps one of the scariest plays in baseball, comparing the dangerous comebacker.  It’s the bean-ball gone bad.  Saturday night in San Diego, it went very bad in a game between the Rockies and the Padres. Jason Hammel was wild all night, hitting two batters already in the game (Will […]

    Swarm Of Bees Attack Petco Park, Delay Game

    Total Pro Sports – Manny Ramirez is returning today and he may have more to worry about than the taunting fans and insulting signs on display in left field of San Diego’s Petco Park.  That section of the park has now become infested with a giant swarm of bees.  What better way to welcome back […]

    5 Ways To Greet The Return Of Manny Ramirez

    Total Pro Sports – Today Dodgers’ slugger Manny Ramirez will make his return to the MLB after serving a 50-game suspension for failing a drug test.  LA will travel to San Diego to take on the Padres and it should be interesting.  We have all seen how other juiced-up ball players have been received by […]

  • The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/18/09 – Adrian Gonzalez

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/18/09 – Adrian Gonzalez

    Total Pro Sports – Interleague play has not been kind to the San Diego Padres as they found themselves going into last night’s game having lost 13 in a row to American League competition.  Thanks to the great hitting by first baseman Adrian Gonzalez, they have now during that long losing streak into a one […]

    The Stat Line Of The Night – 06/15/09 – Felix Hernandez

    Total Pro Sports – In a season filled with mediocrity thus far, the Seattle Mariners do have one bright spot to dwell on.  That is their young ace Felix Hernandez, as he displayed his talents once again last night.  Coming off a string outing last game in which he only allowed one run, Hernandez upped […]
