WHAT IS IT???? 59 DEGREES!!!!
TONY CLARK COMES HOME!!
fugging giles can't et out of his own way
Kinda excited about this new season. Great hitting by the padres...something they really lacked all last year.
Pads beat the 'Stros 4-0!!
Handshakes, butt pats, high 5s all around!!
Go Pads!! :icon_toast:
Release the hate :rolleyes2: :lol:
Tomatoes, tomahtoes...I thought it was gonna be a clean hit when it left his bat.
I really like the way Iguchi and McAnulti started off the season and really stepped it up. They hit very well and they look like upgrades in their positions.
I heard the broadcasters talking about a possible Jason Bay trade? That would be awesome.
Peavy's sac fly would have been a homer in any other park I think.
Good game! Great to see Peavy in mid season form…he has not lost any of his intensity…great performance.
Lots of hits which is good, but four runs on 14 hits is only a fair performance. Overall it was a fun first game.
I love baseball; watching Peavy pitch, and bat, is nothing but fun!
They both did well, as did Bard.
Haven't heard anything sustantive about that.
Thats a stretch...it didn't even make the warning track.
They said something about talks during spring training. They may not be true but got me excited.
That ball was hit pretty deep. He got close to the tracks. One thing though, i think we have the best hitting pitcher in the game right now.
Greg Maddux ain't too shabby either
What a great game! HUGE crowd:The crowd of 44,965 was the second-largest in Petco Park history...great atmosphere. Good seein the old Padres like Brocail, Blum and Loretta. Blum is such a sweetheart, he came right over to my sis and I and said Hi and how's it going, right to us. He said he missed playing here twice. Plus, he signed autographs for awhile.
Peaves never ceases to amaze. Pitching and hitting prowess.
Padres gotta get dudes in instead of leaving them on base.
McAnulty made some great grabs right in front of us and Kooz made an awesome snare on a liner.
Edmonds eyes Saturday return from DL

SAN DIEGO -- Part of the Padres' reasoning behind putting center fielder Jim Edmonds on the disabled list on Friday was so that he wouldn't unnecessarily push himself to get back quicker from the strained right calf injury he suffered on March 6.
Three days later, and after taking Friday and Sunday off completely, Edmonds said that he was fit and ready to rejoin the Padres when he's eligible on April 5, meaning that he'll only miss the first five games of the season.
"Sometimes, when you're coming off an injury ... rest is what you need," Edmonds said Monday, hours before the Padres played their regular-season opener against the Astros at PETCO Park.
"I took a day off, played Saturday and took another day off," Edmonds said. "It has been 100 percent better since those two days off. Sometimes, when you're coming off an injury, rest if what you need. It's a fine line between overworking it and giving it some rest."
Edmonds will work out at PETCO Park on Tuesday and Wednesday, running down balls in the outfield and taking batting practice like he did on Monday before heading to Class A Lake Elsinore to play two games in center field on Thursday and Friday.
"I'll be ready Saturday," said Edmonds, who was placed on the DL retroactive to March 21. "I'm pretty much ready to go now. I think they wanted to err on the side of caution and be careful. They just figured it was better to wait the extra five days. I feel like I'm pretty much 100 percent now."
Edmonds ran in the outfield on Monday without any noticeable limp and had little trouble taking batting practice and pushing off the calf breaking from the box, which is how the injury first occurred.
"It's one of the more disappointing things I've had to go through ... being with a new team, being in shape this winter," Edmonds said. "The bright side is I'll only miss 4-5 games. The good thing is that I had a full winter and a good Spring Training. I don't feel like I'm starting from scratch."
Edmonds played in a handful of Minor League games back in Arizona before heading to his home in Orange County and, finally, to PETCO Park on Monday. Edmonds said that he isn't concerned about his swing and that he only had six official at-bats during Cactus League play.
"Obviously, you need to get some swings," Edmonds said. "I had the 12-15 at-bats down in the Minor Leagues and saw the ball pretty well. I didn't feel that far behind. I'll take a lot of batting practice the next couple of days and I'll be ready to go."
The Padres will have to make a roster move to accommodate Edmonds when he comes off the disabled list. Outfielder Paul McAnulty and utilityman Callix Crabbe don't have Minor League options, but another reserve outfielder, Jody Gerut, does.
Whatever the move is, Black will be happy to get Edmonds -- a player who he saw in his prime when both were with the Angels -- back on the field. Like Edmonds, Black doesn't think the eight-time Gold Glove Awawrd winner will need much time to acclimate himself to his new surroundings. "I think with Jim, he's the type of player with his natural ability allows him to get less game action and be ready to play. I don't think he needs a lot of maintenance to go play a Major League game," Black said.
Solid game by the pods. But two things I saw that still are gunna kill us all year...
Clutch hitting and runners stealing bases when they want to. Everyone in MLB knows we cant throw runners out. Definitely gunna hurt.
My Opening Night pics:
There are more pics of Astros than Padres because we didnt make it to the Padres BP.
