San Diego: Pitchers' Haven

Tom Krasovic pens an interesting article today on the pitchers' haven that is San Diego.  Free agent pitchers love signing with the Padres.  Why?

  • Petco is tough on offense.  According to the Bill James Handbook, the park has reduced runs by 19% over the last couple of seasons.
  • The weather is fantastic - no 35 degree Chicago Opening Days.
  • Manager Bud Black was a pitcher, as was GM Kevin Towers.
  • Krasovic cites Mark Prior and Randy Wolf as two pitchers who spurned bigger offers to pitch in San Diego.
