    Pulled the trigger a year or so ago when we were having issues getting me editing capabilities for the prospects page. Thanks for the support!

    and unlike the last time (1988), the next year’s team is just as good/better

    @JeffPassan

    Star shortstop Fernando Tatis Jr. and the San Diego Padres are in agreement on a 14-year, $340 million contract extension, a source familiar with the deal tells ESPN.

    Well damn

    Cool for him and for them, but I seriously doubt he ever makes it to even 10 years with them once the Padres go through an eventual “tanking”

    hopefully we continue kicking their ass and speeding that process up

    have a lot of respect for the SD ownership and how they are going about their business
    instead of a another whiny bitch ownership trying to push its way into LA they're making a valiant stand and it should make for some exciting games
    have spent a lot of time in SD and they deserve this plus it doesn't allow us to get complacent
    never saw that coming

    Funny how the O'Malleys sold the Dodgers to Fox citing The direction salaries were going back in the 90's as a big reason (after that cKunt Piazza pulled his shtick) and now the Padres are spending money like drunken sailors to compete with us.

    After the Tatis Jr. deal, I saw a lot of people talking about Acuna Jr.......he signed a 8 year/100 million dollar extension!
    He must have the worst agent of all time

    I also want to announce, as we enter 2021, I will be even more annoying, even possibly irrationally, in defense of giving benefit of the doubt to moves made by front office or management on the basis of: they won the World Series and get that benefit of the doubt, just as the skepticism over the years was warranted over not winning. It’s just gonna be fun everywhere to say “yeah but we won it all so who cares” but I want them to go back to back rather badly

    I just want to go to a parade. Win it all again so I can make a fool of myself in downtown.

    I just want to utter the words, "Back to back, baby!" I'm still irked by the Gnats' 3 titles in 5 years, but one thing they didn't do was successfully defend a championship. It would be cool to be the first team to do that in 20 years.
