- Ten Questions with John Baker | UTSanDiego.com
John Baker's favorite books are the ones his high school english teacher assigned him to read. Farenheit 451 and Animal Farm are tied for first place and Slaughterhouse-Five is a close third. Blech. Slaughterhouse-Five is like listening to a 10 year old tell you about a dream they had. "And this happened and then this... and I was a soldier... and I was time traveling... and then suddenly I was in outer space... then I was back in a war..." I never read it though.
- O-Dog (Character)
I was watching Padres POV this morning on Fox Sports SD and learned that Orlando Hudson took his nickname from the character in Menace II Society. Was that the Jada Pinkett character? I never saw it.
- insidethepadres: Ascots
Even though the Padres have the worst record in the NL it doesn't mean they can't have fun. A bunch of the players wore ascots on their most recent road trip to San Francisco. Get it? In related news, Will Venable leads the Majors getting his ass caught stealing. Get it?
- Giants won't mind Padres bringing in their fences | UTSanDiego.com
Bruce Bochy thinks the Padres should move in the fences at Petco Park. I'm pretty sure he gets a vote since he's a Manager emeritus. Pablo Sandoval disagrees and thinks they shouldn't change the park because he says he has no problem hitting home runs here. Who's side are you on? Team Bochy or Team Panda?
