  • PADRES: Antonelli is ready to finally be a hit
    "He's got a lot of courage," Muser said. "It takes a guy to say, 'Hey, I've been going about this wrong.' He took responsibility. He's becoming a man. It is a tough game, a tough mental game and it probably was about 80-to-90 percent mental. I think he was at a point where he was trying to force it to happen: 'I gotta get a hit. I gotta hit it out.'

  • "I can't type as fast as I can think" by Padres Scorecard

  • "Padres react to Giles retirement" by Padres Scorecard
    "He is one of the best," said Scott Hairston, who played next to Giles in center as a Padre. "I learned a lot from Gilley in so many ways. Each and every at-bat, he’d grind it out, always with the same composure. He was a true pro."
