From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans
The Los Angeles Dodgers are the Padres' biggest rivals in the NL West. Losing to them sucks worse than losing to other teams, but beating them is so much sweeter than a typical win. Those who support the Dodgers are known as Dodger fans.
In August 2008, the Padres were sellers and dealt Greg Maddux to the Dodgers for a players-to-be-named later. At the end of the season the Padres were sent minor league pitchers Eduardo Perez and Michael Watt.
