padres vs astros

took matty to the padres game today and dennis took andy. i didn’t expect much from the team. they’ve been hit with so much bad luck this year — i thought they were going to be middle of the pack at least, not bottom of the barrel.

anyways, this is the first time i brought my nex-3 to the ballpark… enjoy!

thanks to andy for the bomb seats!

matt, the baseball stud

so i shot this whole set with the fotasy 35mm lens attached to my trusty nex-3… being a novice, it can get tricky to focus on things — i’m so damn slow with it… but if you get it right, the results look awesome. dramatic is the word

video

this is the first time i took video with the lens… i dunno if i’d do it again — i dunno, what do you think?

robstradamus was off…

…only by a few days (hopefully)

so rob predicted way back when (6/23/10) that the padres would clinch a greater-than-.500 record on 9/9/10 against the giants

it woulda happened too… if it wasn’t for the padres’ 10-game skid… tho even after a 10-game losing streak, the padres held onto first place — can’t say we didn’t give the giants a chance…

it’s been a while since i’ve been a stats nerd, so here we go…

Padres makin’ something from nothing

love me some stats!

Team Division Payroll (Rank)

Texas Rangers AL West $55 million (27th)

Top 5 Padres: Young ($6,375,000), Gonzalez ($4,875,000), Garland ($4,700,000), Bell ($4,000,000), and Correia ($3,600,000)

snubbed

yea whatever…

2010 stats

Player GS CG W L ER K BB H ERA WHIP
Mat Latos 16 1 9 4 29 91 26 70 2.62 0.96
Tim Lincecum 17 0 8 4 40 121 46 97 3.28 1.30
Chris Carpenter 18 0 9 2 42 105 36 109 3.16 1.21

and how does the national league leader in saves (bell, 23) not get on the roster… but broxton, who is 10th in saves, does (16)?

guess charlie manuel doesn’t care much about winning… arthur rhodes (40 year old lefty specialist), evan meek?

so you might be saying, “damn… joey’s a padres homer”

f off… stats don’t lie…

i’ll even give props to another snubbed player, pelfrey (10-2, 2.93 era, 1.29 whip) — happy?
