Thanks for dropping by the place. Don't mind the cobwebs.

Here, following, are several Padres-related articles I've written in recent weeks: Why Giants fans owe Padres fans a gift or two; the benefits and challenges of an "extreme pitcher's" ballpark (hint: this one's in San Francisco,  where the fences aren't being moved in); what course to set regarding Chase Headley; an AL exec's interpretation of what awaits Carlos Quentin; new ownership's embrace of Josh Byrnes; and a reminder that boring Old Petco was good to the Padres, at least on the field.
