  6. One last post about those awesome Padres

    David Schoenfield

    So the Padres did it: They went 1-for-24 on Monday and finished June with a .171 batting average -- the lowest team average for a month since the lively ball era began in 1920. This pretty much says it all (yes, I'm quoting my own tweet here): ...

  9. Lincecum still has it, at least against Padres

    David Schoenfield

    To be honest, I'm not sure if this says more about Tim Lincecum or the struggling, offensively inept San Diego Padres. I mean, if you were to grade each no-hitter on a degree of difficulty scale from 1 to 10, factoring in the strength of the oppon...

    David Schoenfield

    Some thoughts from writers on Tony Gwynn ... Buster Olney, ESPN: He had a bat that he used only against pitchers who relied on soft stuff -- a special bat because it had so few grains. "Nine Grains of Pain," he called it, and he told me that if h...

    David Schoenfield

    The Miami Marlins' season appeared to end -- at least their slim hopes for a spot in the postseason did -- on May 9. That was the game in which Jose Fernandez suffered a season-ending elbow injury in a 10-1 loss to the San Diego Padres. They were 20-...
