Joe Madden????
Both Bud Black and Andy Green have seen their teams both spin out of control. I predict both are gone. Bring in Joe Maddon!
Mackenzie Gore is lighting it up in Lake Elsinore. With his 4-pitch arsenal, he may be even better than Chris Paddack was last year in LE. What an exciting future this young man has....
Looking for the following Padres ticket stubs to add to my collection.

6-20-1994
5-9-1995
4-26-2006
We have a framed picture of opening day, it was given to us from John Moores. The print took over 24 hrs to print, we had it professionally and beautifully framed. We have proudly had this hanging in our office lobby. We are moving out of our office and we don't have a place for such a large picture now. We also have the opening game day ticket that comes with the picture. We are selling the pair and are looking for offers on them. The frame size is 57" x 48". PM me if interested in the pair and if you have any questions.
Hello all need two tickets for tomorrow and Wed game. Message me if you can help
Thx

One badass baseball player.

Thanks to baseball-reference.com and the efforts of countless historians, it’s a BIG day for Josh Gibson and thousands of other men and women who played in the Negro Leagues. Here’s a painting of the slugger with the Pittsburgh Crawfords during the 1935 season.

It's Kareem.

On this day in 1975, the legendary Kareem Abdul-Jabbar was traded by the Bucks to the Lakers. In LA, the star added 5 more NBA titles to his Hall of Fame resume. What we would do to see you back on that court one more time! We honor you today, Kareem!

#19 still the heart and soul, of the Padres.

On this day in 2014, Tony Gwynn passed away at the age of 54. Here’s a small painting of the Padres great that was used in 2019’s 150 Years of Baseball set by Topps. Looking forward to painting a full-sized one of this guy someday.

Lining up for the first #SDMilitary Sunday of 2021!

San Diego Padres @ San Francisco Giants.

Throughout the month of March, we will have a countdown of the top players, managers, executives, and anyone else NOT currently enshrined in the Padres Hall of Fame at Petco Park.

This is not to suggest that the Padres Hall of Fame should be expanded to include dozens of additional players, but rather to examine the individual cases for those who might be nominated or considered for future enshrinement.

Today, we reach our Top 2! One year ago, when I ranked every manager in club history, he came in at #2 on that list as well. Not bad!

As a player, he wasn't anything special, a sturdy backstop, a mustachioed journeyman who could be pulled off the bench for an occasional pinch hit. He'd be the LAST guy that you'd ever expect to be a candidate for the Padres Hall of Fame, let alone the National Baseball Hall of Fame in Cooperstown.

Oh, but that backup catcher had a big brain (and the hat size to prove it). When the Padres couldn't agree to a contract extension with manager Jim Riggleman during the 1994 labor strike, Riggleman bolted for the Chicago Cubs, and the Padres turned to their third base coach to serve as the team's next manager.

Thus began a Hall of Fame managerial career that, although it included four division titles and a trip to the 1998 World Series, it turned out to be just the opening act for the eventual three-time World Champion.

Yes, at #2, the winningest manager in Padres history, and likely a lock for both the Padres Hall of Fame AND Cooperstown.... the one and only Bruce Bochy.

We are down to our Top Three!! And if you've been paying attention, you can probably figure out exactly who the Top Three are going to be.... the only question is what order will they appear?

At #3, we have a former #1 overall draft pick out of Eastlake High School who truly exemplifies the multinational nature of our region. Like another former #1 overall pick, Phil Nevin, this guy had a cup of coffee with a couple of other franchises before coming to San Diego in a steal of a trade. And yes, like Phil Nevin, once he got here, he found a way to reach his fullest potential.

Embraced by fans on both sides of the border, he came ever so close to breaking Nate Colbert's franchise record for home runs. Sadly, though, his stardom and salary demands coincided with a severe economic downturn for the franchise, and with just two home runs remaining to reach the record, he packed his bags for greener pastures..... and then made the Padres pay in other ways every time he got the chance.

We'll have to overlook his time in Dodger Blue.... because Padres fans would prefer to remember him as one of our own.

Possibly the best first baseman in franchise history? You decide! At #3, it's Adrian Gonzalez.

We continue our Top Ten by counting them down, one at a time until Opening Day.

At Numero Siete, we have a guy who might not be as widely known, but his ability to bring Padres baseball to fans on both sides of the border has been essential to building the club's fan base over the last thirty years. His start in broadcasting at an early age means that (we hope!) he has plenty left in the tank to bring the game to future generations.

A native of Tijuana, Ortega grew up listening to Mario Thomas Zapiáin and Gustavo López Moreno, and was "Don Mario's" broadcast partner from 1987 to 1997. Next week, he begins his 35th season at the microphone, bringing the Padres to thousands and thousands of fans en Español.

We are down to the Final Four! (Appropriate for this time of year, eh?)

Today, we have a guy who was brought in from Baltimore, where his beautiful ballpark changed the way the entire industry viewed the construction of baseball stadiums. Along with owner John Moores, he arrived in San Diego during one of the lowest points in franchise history -- not only was the 1994 labor strike in progress, but people were openly questioning how much longer the Padres could even survive in San Diego.

Those questions were answered emphatically, thanks mainly to this man. Perhaps too often overlooked today, and more commonly associated with the Orioles or Red Sox, it's no stretch to say that his actions helped ensure the Padres would stay in San Diego for generations to come. There's been nobody since Ray Kroc in 1974 who singlehandedly did more to keep the San Diego Padres right here where they belong.

At #4, former Padres executive Larry Lucchino.

Today, we get down to the Top 5!

I questioned where this next individual should be ranked on our list. On the one hand, she didn't do much to help the team as owner, leaving most of the baseball operations to her son-in-law. She even infuriated Ozzie Smith before she inherited the team, suggesting (as a bad joke) that Smith could boost his baseball salary by taking a job as her gardener. She also didn't do Padres fans any favors by selling the team to the dreadful Tom Werner group.... but you can't hold that against her too much, because all she was looking for was a buyer.

On the other hand, she did a wonderful job of keeping her husband's legacy alive during the club's most important season, and she was arguably one of the most beloved local figures of the 1980s.

In the end, Mrs. Kroc is at #5 in our countdown, not because of her Padres connection, but because of all she has done for San Diego in general. Her greatest legacy is in being a good citizen and a generous donor, being good to the people and charities of San Diego. Knowing that she couldn't take her vast McDonald's fortune with her, she gave generously and gave often.

In other words, she was the anti-Spanos, and she should be forever remembered fondly by the people of San Diego.

She's the only woman to make our countdown, and easily the most important woman in franchise history. Not bad for somebody who once thought the San Diego Padres was a local group of monks.

"The Alabama Slammer"

Throughout the month of March, we will have a countdown of the top players, managers, executives, and anyone else NOT currently enshrined in the Padres Hall of Fame at Petco Park.

This is not to suggest that the Padres Hall of Fame should be expanded to include dozens of additional players, but rather to examine the individual cases for those who might be nominated or considered for future enshrinement.

We continue our Top Ten by counting them down, one at a time until Opening Day. Today, at #6, we have probably the best starting pitcher in team history not named Randy Jones. The Alabama native was a find for the Padres in the draft (during an era when quality Padres draft choices were few and far between). From his debut against the Yankees, through his Cy Young season -- and really he should have had another one -- this guy could bring the heat and he gave everything he had on the field.

The only question now is why he hasn't been inducted into the Padres Hall of Fame already. Make it happen!

At #10, we have a guy who is beloved by the Friar Faithful, and you'll probably like him even more when you see all that he does behind the scenes for local charities. Yes, he could pass for the Swinging Friar, but his career as a relief pitcher was nothing to sneeze at, either! He's been entertaining Padre fans on the air for over a quarter-century now, and that's enough to get him into our Top 10 countdown.

You hangie, we bangie, if he hits it, it's a double.... the one and only... Mud.

Are team as a PCL team.

As the last of San Diego/Jack Murphy/Qualcomm/SDCCU Stadium is dismantled, let's look at the first Padres club to call it home.

Not the 1969 expansion Padres.... the 1968 PCL Padres, playing the last of 33 minor-league seasons.

Behind them are the new seats in the new stadium, opened a year before Major League Baseball came to town. Yes, the Chargers started there first, but this was the first true test for the multiuse facility. Those deep outfield walls would suppress home runs just as spacious Petco Park later would, beginning in 2004.

In the foreground, fourth from the right, was the original Mr. Padre, Wh**ey Wietelmann, who played for the Padres from 1949-52, then served as a coach from 1959-65, and again from 1968 to 1979. (He even wore #19 while playing for the Padres, and told a young Tony Gwynn in 1982 not to "disgrace" the number.)

In the back row, second from the left, is Steve Arlin, who pitched for the minor league Padres in 1968, the the big-league club from 1969 to 1974. He was a good player on a bad team, leading the league in losses in both 1971 and 1972, He attended dental school during the offseason and maintained a dental practice in San Diego for 25 years before his retirement in 2004.

Steve Arlin's grandfather, Harold Arlin, was an early pioneer of sports broadcasting. Working for KDKA radio in Pittsburgh, the world's first commercial radio station, Harold Arlin became the first person ever to call a game on the radio August 5, 1921. He also was the first radio broadcaster in the history of tennis, boxing, and college football.

In 1972, Harold Arlin was invited to call a baseball game for the first time in over 50 years when the Padres played against the Pittsburgh Pirates. He was on the microphone for that game while his own grandson was pitching for San Diego.

I'm so sad to hear of the passing of Marty Schottenheimer who'd been battling Alzheimer’s since 2014. There's no interview at Chargers Park I looked forward to more than Marty's. He was the master motivator. At his first event in front of Chargers' season ticket holders after the team had gone 5 and 11 the previous year he exclaimed to the large crowd, "W W W... We will win!" And the room erupted in applause. He loved beating no team more than the Raiders, twice a season proclaiming, "It's Raiders week!" You were one of a kind, Marty. May you rest in peace. Please share your Marty memories below. ❤️
