Did you know since April 24, the Cardinals and Padres were the 2 best clubs in the National League with 16-8 records?
San Diego won the opener of a 3-game set last night between the 2, but tonight my boys, with ace Adam Wainwright leading the way, smacked the Padres around something fierce.
Our blow by blow.

First day back to the office and look who shows up.
Johnny Manziel created some excitement (including some from Nats’ Manager Davey Johnson) today in San Diego, where he was on hand to throw out the 1st pitch at the Padres-Nationals game at Petco Park. Manziel also took some hacks in the cage as Padres Manager Bud Black threw batting practice.

Is that you Richard Petty? Didn’t think so.
WTF Arte Moreno? Initially, you were considered 1 of the best owners in sports, but your shit swims downstream quicker than Drano.
The Angels are off to a bad start again and Arte apparently is taking it out on sportswriters who cover the team, burying them in the right-field bleachers. Guess you can’t blame Tony Reagins for everything, no? Besides, did you consider maybe taking much of that coin to sign Zack Greinke instead of Josh Hamilton? Didn’t think so. By the way, how much would you pay me to be the GM? I could save you more grief than Jerry Dipoto. Seriously.
Arte has the red ass about what T.J. Simers writes. You’d think Arte was a smarter man than that, but no.
Anyway, they’ve won 3 in a row and they’re jacking off in their pants, and keep hope alive Angels’ fans. But last time we checked you’re still in the rearview mirror of the Rangers and A’s. And with that pitching staff and bullpen…
Oh, and another T.J. column.

Our “day” job has kept us a bit occupied. 3 days at San Diego’s Petco Park with the sizzling Brew Crew, who had their 9-game winning streak snapped by Edinson Volquez and the Padres Wednesday night. Our blow-by-blow.

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?
