5 Things I learned about Justin Upton from watching Annie's interview

I'm just watching yesterday's Annie Heilbrunn interview with Justin Upton.  You can watch it too. WATCH: @Just_Jup talks career, life, playing the violin, Gyorko’s basketball skills & more in "Meet the #Padres "… http://t.co/Ex9CmVNike — Annie Heilbrunn (@annieheilbrunn) March 18, 2015 I'm going to tell you the five things I learned. 1.  "Jedd Gyorko is five-foot-nothin' and apparently thinks he's an NBA basketball player."  I actually think I knew that Gyorko is short, but it's tough to tell on TV without a banana for scale. 2.  Upton played the violin from the third grade...

Padres 2015 Season Preview

A breakdown of the Padres' offseason and the year ahead. Huge Additions: OF Matt Kemp - The big fish that A.J. Preller caught when he went fishing for offense in December. There are questions about Kemp’s health, his defense and the size of his contract, but if you saw him hit .309/.365/.606 after the All Star break, then you can’t question the bat.

SD 10, SF 5: Everybody hits a home run, and the Padres beat the Giants

Kemp, Upton, Middlebrooks, and Quentin. It took a lot to have to sit through a radio-only game with Padres hitting homers left and right. Here's the gist of what happened today. Most of the staff here at Gaslamp Ball got home late, and things got a little bit crazy in Arizona today. For the first time in 2015's Spring Training season the lineup got to see newcomers Matt Kemp and Justin Upton at the same time. Ian Kennedy returned after being ruffled a bit in his last 2-inning appearance, and the rest of the lineup was experimented with. Unfortunately Kennedy's expected 3-inning...
