Top Plays of 2008

It was a long, hard season. There were some high moments, some low, some funny, and some just plain depressing. Here’s my assesment.

TURNING POINT: 22 inning game against Colorado. After that, we were never the same. The pitching suffered, and the morale did, too. Not even Jeff the Ram’s Head could help us after that.

BEST SERIES: Home opener vs. Houston. In the first game, Jake threw a marvelous game and also got a few RBIs. We won the second game on a Scott Hairston homer. We should have won the third game, but Trevor blew it. But on Thursday he bounced back and saved the win. That was an amazing series.

WORST SERIES: April 15-17 at home vs. Colorado. This was the series that ended with the 22 inning game.

FUNNIEST GAME: I couldn’t pick. It was either one of the 15-8 or 16-7 thumpings of Colorado. They were laughers.

WORST GAME: Again, the 22 inning game. I believe that it really killed our season.

BEST GAME: Scott Hairston’s or Jody Gerut’s walkoff. Or Maddux’s 350th victory after all those failed starts.

WEIRDEST GAME: Paul McAnulty’s walk-off hit by pitch. Hey, it got the game won.

FUNNIEST PLAY: Chris Young’s homer. Watching that big guy run around the bases was hysterical.

WORST PLAYS: Kouz grounding into a triple play and a double play on the same night. It was sad.

BEST PLAY: Kouz’s diving catch it Milwaukee on September 5th. His defense improved drastically this year.

WEIRDEST PLAY: McAnuty’s game ending diving catch over the wall in foul territory. Also, Kouz diving over the railing. These could be classified as funny plays, as well. 

In more recent Padres news, Bud Black, Darren Balsey, Glenn Hoffman, Darrel Akerfelds, and Rick Renteria are coming back next year. Bench coach Craig Colbert is not. GO PADRES!!

Keep up the good work I hope to see you on the Latest Leaders

Yeah, thanks!

I’m up in Santa Barbara and am looking forward to driving down to Petco next season. Everybody I’ve talked to says it’s a great ballpark. I wonder if the Yankees play the Padres in interleague in ’09. Will have to check.
