Lastly, the individual efforts of the players was a great success. Especially Chase Headley and Everth Cabrera leading the league in RBIs and stolen bases respectively.

Born and raised in San Diego and a Padres fan since day one. On that fateful night of September 6, 1989 when I came into this world, the game was on in the delivery room and the Padres beat the Astros and I have been forever engrained with Padre blood. I have followed sports my whole life and have written the Daily Friar for over a year and enjoy bringing all of you the news each morning.
