Die hard San Diego Padres fan, raised in Fresno, CA in the heart of Bulldog Country. Moved to San Diego when I was 18 and lived there until March of 2008 when I relocated here to Irving, TX but I continue to be a Padres fan.

You can find me covering the Padres for The Bleacher Report ( or on my own blog The Swinging Friar (
