Padres PNO (Positives/Negatives/Outlook) Travis Jankowski

Entering spring training this past February, there wasn’t really a definitive spot for Travis Jankowski on the San Diego Padres roster. Jon Jay, Melvin Upton Jr., and Matt Kemp were all expected to play every day for the foreseeable future. Jabari Blash and his massive power was expected to get a chance to play at the big league level. As a matter of fact, the Padres were apparently talking about…


SDSU vs SJSU Recap: Aztecs Annihilate Spartans 42-3

San Diego State put on another amazing show at the Q last night, this one ending in a severally lopsided 42-3 score. It was an impressive performance by the Aztecs football program, as they cruised the whole game. D.J. Pumphrey was his usual self, rushing for over 100-yards once again and breaking yet another long-standing record. This win puts SDSU at 3-0 against the Mountain West Conference this season and…


First Year in The Books for Padres’ Prospect Austin Smith

Sitting in the owner suite watching the Padres Future’s Game with my fellow #SDSocialSummit participants, I witnessed Austin Smith taking a hard comebacker off the back of his thigh. It was really the only hard contact against the right hander in his appearance that day. I texted Austin later that evening to see if he was okay. He responded fairly quickly that he was fine because “I’m a beast”. He…


Don Coryell; Father of the Modern NFL Passing Game Should be in HOF

It would be nearly impossible to overstate the importance of Don Coryell to the game of football. He was a revolutionary in many ways. Don Coryell was born in Seattle, Washington in 1924. After a stint in the Army as a paratrooper in World War II, Coryell went to the University of Washington where he was a DB. Following college and graduate school Coryell began a coaching career that few…


Losing is a Disease (A Padres Theme)

In 2016, the San Diego Padres went 68-94. They finished 23 games out of first place. Attendance was down 1,337 per game—a 8.25 decline%. TV ratings were down a league-leading 38%. Active payroll was just over 29 million at season’s end. Yesterday, the General Manager responsible for the team’s disastrous finish came back from a 30-day suspension for an ethics violation to find the team President, Mike Dee was fired….

Drew Kaser Named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week

In the latest turn of events, Charger’s punter and former holder Drew Kaser was named AFC Special Teams Player of the Week after his turnaround contribution to the Bolts’ victory over the Broncos on Thursday. He put four of his five punts inside the 20 and had a punt average of 47 yards. His longest went 60 yards. I’ll be the first to admit that after, even during, Kaser’s dreadful…


Pumphrey 2016: A Campaign Worth Your Consideration

Rarely, if ever, will you find a hot take on the political sphere within the digitized pages of the East Village Times. It is an area of conversation better left for the talking heads on CNN, not the subjective scribbles of San Diego sportswriters. That being said, there is little doubt that 2016’s presidential race has deteriorated into something bordering on the comically cringeworthy. Luckily for the hometown faithful in America’s…
