In an "interesting twist" Shaughnessy does one of his random thoughts column but focuses specifically on the sights and sounds of the Padres and Red Sox at Petco Field (now known as the house that Larry Lucchino built).
He provides a few Shankisms:
- Yet another shot at Schilling and his blogging
- He tells us that Julio Lugo is slumping (but when he is going to acknowledge that he may have been wrong about the "over-matched" Dustin Pedroia?)
- 1980's cultural reference alert: Khalil Greene looks like Spicoli from Ridgemont high.
He does provide a few interesting points...talks about how much Mirabelli is hated in San Diego and talks about the bullpen design inequities (home vs. visitor) at Petco.
