  • PADRES: Young's pitching, Venable's defense keep playoff hopes alive
    I love it. I love environments like that ---- the crowd, the energy, the intensity," Young said. "Every pitch matters. It's what you play for, and it's a lot of fun to be a part of it. I'm just thankful to have this opportunity. It's unbelievable and, hopefully, there's more to come.

  • Black not surprised by Tejada's tear | padres.com: News
    Miguel Tejada is one of the players who continues to swing a hot bat. Heading into Wednesday's game against the Cubs, he is hitting .286 with five home runs and 17 RBIs in September. None of this surprises Bud Black, who saw plenty of Tejada during his seven seasons as the Angels' pitching coach.

  • Gonzalez clarifies comments about Cubs | padres.com: News
    Adrian Gonzalez reiterated on Wednesday that his current focus is on the Padres' playoff push and not switching uniforms, after an article in Tuesday's Chicago Sun-Times that alluded that the All-Star first baseman is interested in playing for the Cubs when he becomes a free agent in 2012.

    I've always been able to take the bat to the ball," Eckstein added. "Even when I was an infant, I had a bat in my hands even though my parents really weren't all that into baseball.

  • Websoulsurfer: Pathetic Team Performance, Pathetic Fans - A San Diego Padres Blog
    Well the answer you whiny biotches is maybe when you actually show up to support a playoff caliber team like the one we have been privileged to see play all year.

  • Padres Trail: Will Venable and Chris Young save the season
    San Francisco has a lot more incentive to win than the Dodgers did in 96. Seeing as the Padres have dominated the season series, I would think the last team SF wants to play in the NLCS is San Diego.

  • Chris Young’s September Stuff | Chicken Friars | A San Diego Padres Blog
    So…it’s going to be tough for Young tonight, in what’s likely his final start of the 2010 regular season. He doesn’t have much other than his height, decent command, and guile to navigate the Cubs lineup. Here’s hoping he manages to cobble together a fourth solid start in spite of it.
