The Padres after 9 games

We heard all offseason from both GM Josh Byrnes and Manager Bud Black about how important it was for the Padres to get off to a good start to the season.  With both the Dodgers and Giants in the...

Which comes first the shutout by or of the Padres?

I've been out of town on bizness since last weekend and had very little access to a computer, so my blogging is a little bit behind.  While I was gone, the Padres were shutout for the first...

Doubleheaders for Pads becoming rare

It's increasingly rare that Major League Baseball schedules a doubleheader. In the 70's it was a pretty common occurrence for all teams. In the 1971 season the Padres played 20 doubleheaders, the...

Padres have spent 34% of their games in last place

A few days back I blogged about the Padres' last games in first place and I totaled up the number of games they spent in first place for each season.  From my tally they have spent 984 games total...

The Padres' last games in first place

I was going to post this data table and see if you could guess what it is, but instead I'll just tell you. This is latest the Padres were in first place in their division for each season.  Those...

Padres Win % as it relates to runs

I was thinking about the Padres win percentage last night as it relates to the number of runs the Padres score.  Today I made some data tables. Winning percentage by Padres' runs scored R...

Every MLB team's record at Petco Park

Over the weekend I watched about three minutes of a baseball game being played in Boston.  Two teams, who weren't the Padres, were playing against each other so fiercely it was almost like the...

2013 Padres against their opponents

I was going to quiz myself to see if I could name the teams that the Padres owned during the season.  There weren't really any but they did rent-to-own a few teams.  Since the season is all a...

2013 sets extra-innings record

A look at the Padres extra-inning game data throughout history

Padres get their 70th win, finally

Some teams never win 70 games in a season.  Thirty Padres teams have though.  If you're looking at Padres history and comparing those teams who have won at least 70 then you'll notice that the...

In 1998 the Padres had 90 wins at this point

At this point in the season back in 1998 the Padres had just claimed their 90th win.  That's better than any other team today.  The Braves are currently the best team in baseball and they only h...

Dodgers have won 52 of 65 games. The Pads won 25.

Nobody has talked about the Dodgers in decades, but now that they've finally put 65 decent games together they're the talk of Twitter.  I love a good underdog story. A problem arose yesterday...

Five players with 'PADRES' letters in their names

I saw this tweet from the Red Sox organist retweeted yesterday.  It's about the fact that only two players in Red Sox history have all the letters of their team name in their own names. Xander...

Longest Padres games

Sunday's 15 inning epic against the Cubs was the 5th longest game in Petco Park history and the 15th longest game in Padres history.  At 5 hours and 13 minutes it's tied with a game in Philly from...

Padres teams' 60th wins

It took the Padres 133 games to win their 60th.  That's a long time, but considering two teams in 1973 and 1974 completed the feat on the last day of the season and four Padres teams never reached...

The Padres' best and worst 50 game stretch

You've probably read all the articles by now about the Dodgers tying an old record for the most wins in a 50 game stretch.  It's pretty impressive... Dodgers join elite company with 10th straight...

The Padres' most lopsided losses

The Padres' 14-2 loss last night was lopsided, but it could have been worse if not for Jedd Gyorko's 9th inning solo shot.  I looked up the worst lopsided losses in Padres history and thought you...

117 games down and 45 to go

With 117 games played and 45 scheduled for the rest of the season, I thought it might be a good time to check in on where the 2013 Padres stand compared to every other Padres team. After the...

The Padres' first 100 games

One hundred games down and 62 to go. The season's end can't come soon enough. It's still so far off, but in my heart I'm already there. These last few weeks have been so depressing. While our...

Padres' July on pace for worst month ever

The 2013 Padres are currently on pace to have their worst month (at least 20 games) in franchise history. They're 3-14 (17.64%) since July 1 and if they lose 8 of their next 10 games, which they...

The worst 20 game skid in Padres history

Over the weekend I wrote about how the Padres had gone 3-17 in their last 20 games. I knew things were bad, but I just didn't realize how bad until I actually counted the number of losses. I...

Padres are 3-17 in last 20 games

Remember how badly the Padres started the season? It was their worst start in franchise history. They went 5-15 in their first 20 games. Terrible, right? Couldn't get much worse. Fortunately...

A look at the Padres 2nd half record

Jeez, the Padres suuuuck right now. No Padres team has ever started the second half of their season going 0-9. It's kind of hard to believe that they could still be looking for their first win...

The Padres' first half

Here we are, juuuust past the midpoint of the season. In the last ten games, the top three teams in the division have slipped into mediocrity by going 4-6. The Giants have plummeted to 4th place...

Best and worst records over 162 consecutive games

I was listening to Marty Caswell's interview with Padres GM Josh Byrnes earlier and he was referencing the fact that the Padres were doing quite well over the last 12 months. If you remember the...
