It's a good start, but I think in the end the ROX will win the division. We always start slow and finish strong.

Im not betting on us :D but were young and we seem to be having fun so anything can happen. And if we do somehow go about this season the way were playing now i really hope it doesnt come down to a one game playoff between the rocks and padres, we all know what happened last time. :sad:

I do want a Ted Williams Padres Jersey. I don't think it is the same team he played for back in the PCL, but I found a place that makes throwback Unis from the old days of the Minors.

Congrats Charger$......You guys have played great ball the last few games. I wish our bullpen didnt blow two games vs you guys.



I hate the Padres the least out of all the teams in the West ( probably cause they are usually the least competitive:D)

I feel you, i lost faith in them anyways. It sucks not having owners who spend but hopefully that will change eventually so we can add some excitement to the west.

From the Boston Globe on the Gonzalez trade

Posted by Peter Abraham, Globe Staff April 22, 2010 01:36 PM
You probably don't spent a whole lot of time dwelling on the standings in the National League West. particularly in April.

But it's worth noting that the Padres have won six straight and are atop that division at 9-6. Adrian Gonzalez has an OPS of 1.015.

In other words, it seems fairly unlikely that Jed Hoyer is going to be trading his best player and community icon any time soon.

The Padres will eventually have to trade Gonzalez. But he is affordable and under control through the end of the 2011 season. So a deal can wait until the winter, if not sometime next season.

As Theo Epstein noted the other day, significant trades just don't happen in April (or May for that matter) and the Red Sox will have to solve their problems from within. Terry Francona already seems to be doing that by using Mike Lowell as the DH and giving more playing than expected to Jason Varitek.

Beyond that, if the Red Sox do eventually make a trade, they need a catcher a heck of a lot more than a first baseman. Miguel Montero once he's healthy? Russell Martin? Kurt Suzuki?

They'd be a much better team with a competent catcher behind the plate (both in terms of handling the pitchers and controlling the running game) and with Victor Martinez as the DH.

Mentioned this before still think it's true, there's a reason they haven't opened negotiations with Martinez on a contract extension.

Here it is....



PETA protest
During the construction of the stadium, the Padres offered fans the chance to purchase bricks outside of the concourse and to dedicate them.

Soon after this, PETA attempted to purchase a brick to protest Petco's treatment of animals (PETA and Petco have a long-standing dispute over this matter), but the first two attempts were denied. Undeterred, PETA succeeded on its third attempt by purchasing a brick which read "Break Open Your Cold Ones Toast The Padres Enjoy This Champion Organization." When one reads the first letter of each word, it forms an acrostic which reads "BOYCOTT PETCO." The Padres decided to leave the brick there, saying not enough people walking by would notice the secret meaning.[2]
