Padres play first extra-inning game of the year

I noticed a little earlier in the week that the Padres still hadn't played their first extra-inning game of the year.  Well it happened last night.  The Padres beat the Brewers in 12 innings thanks...

Padres are 9-11 after 20 games

Last year after 20 games the Padres were tied for the worst start in franchise history with a record of 5-15.  This year they have 4 more wins and sit at a 9-11 record.  It's not a great start but...

Padres pitchers stingy with runs in first 19 games

Here's another interesting tweet, this one from Geoff Young of Ducksnorts. #Padres runs allowed through 19 G: 2012, 81; 2013, 93; 2014, 60. Only once has team allowed fewer than this year: 1985...

April runs hard to come by at Petco Park for Pads

I saw this tweet from Craig Elsten the other day about the Padres poor run production in April during the Petco Park era. The #Padres have sucked at scoring runs in April since moving to Petco....

April 19th still pretty close to the worst date

April 19th has historically been the worst date in Padres history, but because this year's Padres team lost on April 2nd, that date has now claimed that title. Although you'll notice that the...

Padres' attendance in first 10 home games

I saw this tweet four days ago from VP of Marketing Wayne Partello regarding the Padres attendance. Actually the stat is that #PetcoPark is currently #7 in MLB attendance. #...

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 time. ...

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 game...

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 blur...

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 2013...

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 have...

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...
