Open Thread 3/16: Our Beloved Padres vs the Villainous Giants of San Francisco

[editor's note, by Dex] Yesterday was 3/22... So that's why nobody came to comment with me! I got all biblical with the title.

Now that we're on SportsBlogs, we're supposed to do these open threads. Let's see how this works out.

If you're watching or listening to the game, check here for our commentary. I'll be watching on Channel 4.

Here are some things to think about.

1. With Bonds finally breaking down because of knee problems, how does that affect the NL West projections?

2. Am I the only one who thinks it's sweet the way Jerry Coleman talks to Flannery when they're in the booth together? Flan is very respectful, and Jerry calls him "Timothy". It's very nice and relaxing. You think Leitner's jealous?

3. You think Gwynn heard the news about Bonds' knee an felt some sort of satisfaction? I'm looking forward to his statement about this, especially considering some of the statements Bonds would make about Gwynn late in his career. I predict Gwynn saying something along the lines of, "I told you losing weight wouldn't really do anything," or more likely, "Bonds could've had another few good years, if only he'd laid off the extra dessert."

4. What the hell is that thing on Mark Grant's chin? Santa Maria indeed.
