Padres Morning Dump

Tucson Padres first baseman Kyle Blanks ran more and ate healthier during the winter to mold himself into better shape.

The 2011 season has been a roller coaster year for the Padres, a team that, despite a fantastic 2010 year, had absolutely no expectations for greatness this year.

There are plenty of teams out there that will be on the prowl for a powerful right-handed bat, but the supply is not going to be able to keep up with the demand.

In a game that featured a combined 36 strikeouts — a modern-era record for a game lasting 14 innings or fewer — the San Francisco Giants defeated the San Diego Padres on a walk-off home run by Nate Schierholtz in the 14th inning.
