The Padres swept the Dodgers Wednesday night. Four of their 5 wins have come courtesy of Dodger Blue.
Maybe that explains why Tom Garfinkel, the Padres’ CEO, went the Leonard Tose route and heated up the Carlos Quentin-Zack Greinke feud again.
Earth to Tom. The Dodgers are going to drill Quentin again and then what? He can’t charge the mound again, so what are you going to cry about then?

What happens 1st: The Angels win the World Series or Mike Scioscia gets canned?
We say Scioscia gets a pink slip because Anaheim’s finest can’t capture the World Series with this pitching staff. Joe Blanton? C’mon Arte. You asleep at the wheel? We know your GM is with this group of arms. Who’s your closer again?

With Opening Day less than a week away, several baseball experts have been touting the Padres as one of the clubs that could surprise. San Diego had one of the best records in the 2nd half of the season last year, but had nothing to show for it.
This season, the Pads would need to prevail for a postseason berth (a wild card seems to be the most popular prediction) in a division that includes the world champion Giants and a Dodgers club that includes a convoy of Brinks’ trucks. Further, according to VegasInsider, the Dodgers are 10-1 (Angels, Nats and Tigers are also 10-1) to win the World Series, while the Giants are a 12-1 pick.
Injuries have also hurt the Padres in spring training. Third baseman Chase Headley could miss the 1st month with a broken thumb. And slugger Carlos Quentin, who has played the past couple of day in spring training, played in only 86 games last season and has been hobbling around in Arizona.
But hope spring eternal. It always does this time of year.

Where’s Arte Moreno? Magic Johnson?
The usual suspects such as Roger Goodell, David Stern and Bud Selig are among a list of the 50 most powerful people (only 3 women) in sports. But Ed O’Bannon? That’s right. The former UCLA star could change the landscape of college sports with his suit against the NCAA.
