  • PADRES NOTES: Roberts encouraged as cancer treament winds down

  • PADRES: Ethier makes Black pay for key decision in seventh inning
    "Jon got the ball down, got a ground ball -- it just got through."

  • insidethepadres: Ben Davis
    "Hitting experts told me early in Davis' career that his swing would be a problem as he moved up the ranks and encountered better pitching. They described it as a "grooved" swing. Sort of like a robot would go about it, sweeping the bat at the same angle, over and over."

  • The Official Blog of Matt Antonelli: BACK TO WORK

  • THE KEPT FAITH: The Kept Faith Podcast 006
    "If you'd just start subscribing already, you'd have known this, but our latest podcast is up. Consider it an appetizer before your main course of a sweep over the Dodgers. But not really a healthy appetizer, more like if you ate dessert before the main course. Yeah, that's what this is."

  • Padres Trail: Intentionally walking Russell Martin
    "Martin isn't hitting any better since the All-Star break than he did the first part of the season (.245/.346/.332 before, .269/.345/.346 since), so I definitely would not classify him as hot and, based on how he's hit since the end of the 2008 season, not a good hitter either."

  • Padres postpone Petco concert series -
    "We still plan to have the concerts, we’re just re-evaluating the timing," Miller said. "I don’t anticipate them happening during the season. Ideally, we’ll go with the same musical lineup. But we’ll wait until after the season is over, which hopefully means after the post-season, after the World Series."
