First of all, I’m sorry for not blogging for about a month. School’s been busy, I finished it last week, though. I will start blogging more, I promise.
Hey everyone, thank you so much for checking out my blog!!! I really appreciate everyone checking out my blog! I was recently 39th on the MLBlogs leaders list, and I am very happy. To all my readers, thank you very much!!!!
These Padres are rolling. 4 wins in a row, great pitching, defense, everything. Plus a little drama. It all started on Friday versus the Diamondbacks.
Man, what a tough game to start the 2010 campaign. Very tough. Here is the recap:
I am so sorry that I haven’t blogged for a while. I’ve been playing a lot of basketball recently, i’ve been to Fresno, and now I am on Spring Break, so life is going pretty well. Life is going pretty well for the Padres as well. They’ve shown some real promise, if i’m not mistaken, they are 15-10-1 this spring. But records don’t matter whatsoever at this point. The Friars have played well. Chase Headley, most of all. This guy was slumping for 2 years, with an average around .250 while playing left field. Now in ST, he has 20 RBI’s in 18 games while he’s returned to an everyday 3rd baseman. Possibly playing at his natural postition will improve his numbers dramatically? I sure hope so.

So I am going to be in school Monday April 5th, at 2:10 PM, and probably will be pulling my hair out in class, It’s going to drive me crazy knowing that my Padres are playing the first game of the season and I won’t even be able to watch it. I think i’ll sneak my iPod Touch into the class and follow the game secretly with MLB At Bat 2010.

Maybe that’ll work, idk. I just hope my teacher doesn’t read this blog!!!! Haha cuz if he does I’m sure he’ll be keeping an eye on me in class, making sure I am following his lesson instead of the Padres.
The Padres named Jon Garland the Opening Day starter. This surprised me a lot because i thought maybe C.Y. or K-Cor would get the nod. But Buddy Black knows what he’s doing. Oh yeah, and Garland starting Opening day means C.Y. will be hurling the rock at the home opener on April 12th.
Man, all this talk about baseball is getting me pumped. Another season, another 162 games, Even though the Padres may not get there this year, they still got a good solid bunch of young guys that will make a difference.
Have a good night everybody, and God Bless!
OK, so I’ve decided to countdown to Opening Day on my blog, and it is really hard to believe that it is just 19 days until the Padres play their st game of the season on the road versus the Arizona Diamondbacks. I can’t wait, it’s gonna be a season filled with excitement, you and i can be sure of that.
So now, getting down to business. The Friars are 4-9 in Spring Training. Big deal. Lol it doesn’t really matter. In fact, the Phillies had a 13-19 record in Spring Training last year- and look how they ended up- as NL Champs. In fact, even the Angels (3-8), Pirates (4-8), Rangers (4-8), and Orioles (5-8) have similar records as the Padres. So nothing to worry about. They are just getting their timing down and adjusting to playing ball everyday again.
I really wish that I could’ve tried to sign up earlier to play some senior league baseball at my local little league, but the teams have already been set up and I wasn’t able to get a spot because I waited too long to try and sign up… oh well. I’ll play in the summer. In the meantime, I think i’m gonna play in a basketball league with some of my friends, so that will be fun.

Padres play today versus the KC Royals at 1:05 PM PT. Clayton Richard and Sean Gallagher are scheduled to pitch today. Also, the OKC Thunder play at 4 PM PT versus the Charlotte Bobcats. Both should be great games.
Also, outsidephillies had my 300th comment on my blog earlier this week! Thanks for checking out my blog outsidephillies and everyone!!!
Have a great day, and God bless.
I think that the Padres should go back to their old mustard colored and brown uniforms. They are so cool. I remembered how awesome they are because Donovan Tate was sporting them at a PETCO game the day they signed him last year, and it is also one of the stories on Padres.com about Donovan Tate. Simply, I think they should go back to those uniforms.
