Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were (day) drinking.
The Padres (76-86) lost the final game of the 2013 season to the San Francisco Giants in the most Padres way possible, squandering a 3-run lead after Jedd Gyorko‘s first career grand slam to lose it in the bottom of the ninth, 7-6.
Starter Tyson Ross gave up 3 runs on 7 hits and 1 walk with 7 K’s in 6 innings. Tim Stauffer came in to relieve Ross, and only lasted 2/3 of an inning, giving up 2 runs on 2 walks, the runs coming after Nick Vincent relieved Stauffer.
The Friars finished the season tied for third place in the NL West with the Giants. They matched last year’s record. That’s improvement, right? RIGHT?
The Padres start the 2014 season at Petco Park against the Los Angeles Dodgers on March 31st at TBD. TBD takes the mound against TBD.

“He’s the kind of guy you want to have stay around. Kotsay will stay in uniform. At one point I think you will see him back in uniform.”

The Indians are in the playoffs. The Padres are hoping for a 1 game improvement over last season. #PPLive
