- Aki will be the third Padres player playing in the World Baseball Classic. Aki for Japan, Peavy playing for the USA and Vinny Castilla playing for Mexico.
- Barry Bonds is getting excited about the WBC and is feeling better. I checked his website to see if he has written any notes in his journal recently. Nothing new since October but I noticed that he does have a picture of himself signing an autograph for a little kid Padres fan at Petco.
- Padres have opened their holiday gift store online. I was checking out the "Padres Top Five" and #3 is a signed Terrance Long All Star Ball. That either means Padres fans are really too attached to Long or Padres fans aren't buying hardly anything online.
- A heart warming story of all the good guys on the Padres going to visit little kids in the hospital.
