The Padres lost last night. This time, however, they actually put up a fighting chance instead of doing nothing. There’s something I have learned about this team over the past two games. We can’t hit anything super slow, a la Bronson Arroyo with his looping curveball. And we can’t hit the super fast stuff, like Aroldis Chapman last night hitting 101 MPH.

Word of advice: don’t text at a Padre game, Will Venable is watching – NBC Sports
