  1. I've been so starved for (Padres) baseball that I sat through the almost two hours of replay from a 1998 NLCS game on YouTube. The Padres and Kevin Brown beat the Braves, but Ruben Rivera stuck out like a sore thumb. Greg Vaughn was injured, and they brought him in to play LF. He went 0-5 with three strikeouts. Dude was... not great. Whenever the Padres make a trade for prospects, I always worry about them turning out to be like Rivera.
