Smells Like Padres in Here: The "It's Always Calmest Before the Storm" Edition

Tomorrow is first day of the 2008 San Diego Padres baseball season. One of one hundred and sixty-two...plus even more, if we are so lucky.  Because it's the Padres, it will be a roller coaster ride so horrifying that even the most evil minds on the Magic Mountain payroll couldn't have imagined it in the midst of a bad LSD trip. But, here we are. Back for more.

There are tons of links this morning...many from the U-T. Enjoy your last day...tomorrow we're all gonna feel like we ate a bad deep-fried Oreo - and it's not gonna go away for months.

Meet your 2008 Padres.

Chris Jenkins has an in-depth look at our Rule V outfielder, second baseman, shortstop, third baseman...Callix Crabbe.

Tim Sullivan has a nice piece about our Opening Day centerfielder...Scott Hairston.

Sez Me...Nick Canepa is a cantankerous old man.

Jody Gerut is going to be so awesome.

Jake's number is already getting retired.

Beer or Rent? Beer or Rent? Beer or Rent?

Corey Brock gives us a look at the changes from last season.

Tom Krasovic has a bunch of great stuff this morning: Are we playing it smart...or cheap?. A breakdown of  "Sandyball".   Paul DePodesta does it all.

A Petco Park map showing points of history.

 KT and Aid FINALLY get some love.

Tomorrow night. 7:05pm PDT. Home Opener. The first regular season Open Thread on the 2.0. Don't miss it.
