I noticed a little earlier in the week that the Padres still hadn't played their first extra-inning game of the year. Well it happened last night. The Padres beat the Brewers in 12 innings thanks to a 447 foot homerun courtesy of Chase Headley and a save...

Games! Data! La Forge! To celebrate the fact that the season is now 13 percent complete, here are 13 items of potential interest (stats are through April 22): The difference between the top of the order and the heart has been staggering. Guys in the first two slots have hit .297/.333/.436 (these numbers were even better when I started writing this), while 3 through 6 are at .194/.257/.291 (lowest OPS in baseball, nearly 70 points worse than the Houston Astros). That isn’t the best way to score runs. In an April 17 game at Petco Park, Colorado’s Troy Tulowitzki drew three walks, ......

Often as fans of a team, we end up (consciously or not) viewing the financial side of baseball from the owners’ perspective. We worry about how much our favorite team – the Padres of San Diego in this case – spends on its players, not because it’s our money on the line or because we’re worried about our team’s owners’ upcoming yacht payments, but because we want our team to spend its available dollars as efficiently as possible. In the end, after all things even out, efficient spending should correlate to more wins. And we as fans are generally in ... Read the full post
The @Padres go 1-2-3 in the 1st but who cares. A flailing offense is nothing but a prelude to Andrew Cashners first pitch. #DressTheDeer— AJM (@AvengingJM) April 22, 2014
There’s no denying it anymore. I’ve tried for so long, living in denial. I’ve tried convincing myself that Chase Headley was a very good player. I was lost in the fantasy of wanting him to become someone he never had the talent of being. Alas, the first 19 games of the season have finally convinced me that the Headley naysayers are right. Chase Headley is the problem. He’s been the problem ever since he arrived in San Diego. Yes, he alone is responsible for the many, many years of mediocrity us fans have had to endure. Not cheap ownerships who decided ... Read the full post
Oakland prospect Billy Burns scored from 2nd on a sac fly the other day. He was 8-for-8 in steals before yesterday. Austin Hedges happened.— Padres Prospects (@PadresProspects) April 18, 2014

Before Sunday's series finale against the San Diego Padres, Giants manager Bruce Bochy sat hunched over his desk, intently studying a piece of paper with four screenshots of Buster Posey's swing from various seasons. Bochy was looking for some sign of trouble in his slumping star's mechanics but couldn't find a glaring issue.

The San Diego Padres are one game under .500 three weeks into the season, not bad considering that they lost six of their first nine games. San Diego Padres' Nick Hundley returns to the dugout after his solo home run against the San Francisco Giants in the seventh inning a baseball game Sunday, April 20, 2014, in San Diego. San Diego Padres right fielder Xavier Nady jumps at the fence to make the catch on a long drive hit by San Francisco Giants' Gregor Blanco in the eighth inning of a baseball game Sunday, April 20, 2014, in San Diego.
