Every year I think about how much fun the baseball season brings and keep it to myself. No longer will that be the case. Now I can share it with the world, along with the angst of being a San Diego Padres fan. Every day, well, almost every day, you can stop by and hear the rumblings that are going on in the Minor Leagues and the Major Leagues.

Jake Peavy told us he went hunting right after the season with David Wells. A country boy, Peavy may have to alter his outdoorsmen ways.

It turns out the insurance policy to cover Peavy does not include any accidents that occur hunting or on a boat fishing.

With a contract that could be worth $26 million, he can live with that.

Sean Burroughs has been hit by more pitches, three, than he has extra base hits, two.

Travis Chick checked in the other day after he pitched four innings of one run ball against the Triple-A squad in an intra-squad scrimmage. Chick is likely slated to join the Mobile BayBears to begin the year and could quickly rise to Portland.

Josh Barfield went perfect this spring for the Padres. A perfect 0-for-11. Don't worry, he will shine in Triple-A and be back on the radar as the top bat in the Padres system.
