Each year, Geoff Young blows his whole winter (and then some) putting together the single most comprehensive single-team book you’re ever going to find. It’s called Ducksnorts, and it has everything you ever wanted to know about the San Diego Padres. It’s so detailed that I’m putting even odds on Geoff being called as a witness in John and Becky Moores’ divorce case.
Well, it’s that time of year again: Geoff has finished Ducksnorts 2009. Free excerpts can be read here. The whole kit-and-caboodle can be purchased here, in either paperback or downloadable form. Sorry, if you buy a kit, you must purchase a caboodle too. No exceptions.
Now that the book is out, you’re officially on notice: if you can’t name any Padres other than Adrian Gonzales and Jake Peavy, you have no one to blame but yourself.
