I never did much in the way of organized sports as a kid, but I played a lot of invented games that often involved several different types of balls at the same time, frisbees, eating large quantities of foods, duct tape, and/or a team of dogs.

Ranking Game 10


Wherein the Padres start adding to their repertoire of ways to lose a game.

Rating Game 9


This was the one where Carlos Quentin and Zack Greinke got into a fight.

So there was a fight in the Padres-Dodgers game


And it ended pretty ugly.

Yonder Alonso. 1 man. 1 game. 3 positions.


That's what we call an athlete and/or really bad planning.

Ranking a "good" loss


Sure we lost, but sometimes a loss can be fun. Right? RIGHT? WE ALL HAD FUN, RIGHT.

Like it ain't no thing.

Rating Game 6


It's getting pretty grim here. Resetting expectations, etc.

Water is wet. Sky is blue. TWC sucks.


You've heard it before, but I just wanted to write something about it. Once. Again.

Rate the first game of the season


The payoff at the end will be enormous for little bits of work as we go.

Breakout Alert: Cameron Maybin


Oh man. Once Cam gets going, it's gonna be three words: A May(bin) Zing.

Like it's not bad enough they got more money...


Now they want to hire all the MBAs and smarty pants? Come on now. That's not how it's supposed to work, people.

Chase Headley has broken thumb. GLB: Broken heart


Foulweather Fan arrives just in time to point out that a Chase Headley 7 year deal probably would've avoided this setback.

Now the government is getting involved, folks


If Time Warner Cable and Fox Sports San Diego don't figure this thing out, the city government is going to get involved, by listening very carefully and counciling and/or governing.

Young Padres who look good in baseball pants


Gyorko, Kelly, Fried and Hedges all represent us well in the annual test of looking sexy to BA writers.
