It was good to see my boys get back in the W column with a 12-3 win yesterday. They split the 2 games with the Diamondbacks, get the day off today and now come home ready to play that Obnoxious Orange team again! Why do we have to host them twice in the first month of the season? Confused Following that the Pirates will be in town.

Our "regular" catcher, Austin Nola, has been activated for the first time this season after missing the first few weeks with a fractured middle finger. Rookie catcher Luis Campusano was optioned as he has been struggling horribly.

Dodger ladies - I have not heard anything from you about the sign "peeking" accusations from last Sunday's game. My Padres are standing firm behind El NiƱo. What do you think?

I don't think much more can be made about it. Maybe Trevor just wanted to stir things up a bit; I don't know. He knows he got the best of him and other Dodger pitchers over the weekend. Sign-stealing by "peeking" is not nearly as offensive to me as sign-stealing so overtly like the Astros did.

I kind of shrug at it myself.

Yes, now you get to play those Battery Chuckers and they are .5 game ahead of our Dodgers in first place! I guess I will have to root for the Padres at least for one day. Depending on what happens it could get very tight at the top.

Yes I was just mentioning that in your other thread. We have 3 teams within 2 games of each other. Final score tonight from Petco Park was 3-2 with Yu Darvish striking out 12 Water Hoarders. Chris Paddack has been put on the IL with no reason given so I am not sure what was going on with that. RHP Miguel Diaz has been called up.

Cathy, I've gotta give your guys props. They keep leaving the door open for us and we refuse to use the entrance. Sad Three teams within .5 games at the top!

Thank you, now they have slipped back because they could not complete the sweep. Joe Musgrove got hit hard. But the Pirates are in for a 3 game series now at Petco Park. Miguel Diaz will start tonight so we can see what he has with Lamet still unsure about when he will return, and of course Paddack being out for the time being.

So far, the Padres and Pirates have split the first 2 games and the rubber game will be played later today. Both games have been well pitched for both teams. In the first one Miguel Diaz looked great getting the start after his call up, and my boys won, 2-0, although they were no hit for 7 innings and had to score late. Second game, Pirates won, 2-1. Btu Dinelson Lamet pitched a couple of innings and was sharp.

Now that is over, my Padres won the series vs. the Pirates, but seemed to have a bit of trouble scoring than they had against other teams. We had good pitching on both sides throughout those 3 games. Now to the road, and the big series is ahead of us in San Francisco this weekend, Padres vs. Battery Chuckers. Go Padres!

So far, that has not happened in this series. Last weekend, my boys took the first 2 games at home before losing the last one. This weekend, Battery Chuckers have taken the first 2 games in San Francisco.

My boys are on the road in Colorado and guess what - another bad weather cancellation. So, we get a doubleheader Rolling Eyes
