Run Fairies

From Gaslamp Ball Wiki - A Wiki for San Diego Padres Fans

Run Fairies was term used to describe the 2008 bullpen during a rough patch at the beginning of 2008. Because Joe Thatcher was one of the worst of the bunch and Bud Black liked to use him so much he was named "Queen of the Run Fairies." This is a lesson to all you kids out there; take care of your bullpen. If you don't, a Queen will arise and no lead will be safe from their ability to sprinkle runs everywhere.
