Brian Giles accused of abusing his ex-girlfriend

Can it get any worse for Padres fans? Brian Giles is being sued by an ex-girlfriend for $10 million and alleges that he beat her while she was pregnant with his child.

Around December 2005, they got engaged. Even though the engagement was called off, court papers claim the couple maintained a "marriage-like relationship" until about April 2008.

"Beginning in 2002 and throughout the course of the parties’ long-term cohabiting relationship, the defendant conducted a continuing course of abusive conduct, including acts of emotional, verbal and physical domestic violence…" according to court documents.

Ugh. We'll see what comes of this, but it's really difficult to like anybody associated with the Padres these days. Are we technically associated with the Padres? What about Gaslamp Ballers in general? How closely is Scanlan associated with the Padres?

The Padres really need to work on non-work related relationship strategies. That's sinking to some kinda new low to even be accused of beating up a pregnant woman. That's like what evil people do. Evil like the devil.
