    Have you caught MLBN’s “Triumph and Tragedy: The 1984 San Diego Padres” feature some time over the last three months? It’s an excellent piece of work – as MrSportsBlog noted shortly after it first aired.

    But, I’ve yet to see any reference to another installment in the series. It would be a shame if they dropped this one. I would love to see more of these – if they’re done as well as the one on the ’84 Padres.

    Update: The good folks in Media Relations at the MLB Network have shared with me that the “Triumph and Tragedy” show on the 1984 San Diego Padres will re-air on Sunday, February 7 at 5:00am ET.

    Set your DVRs!

    And, other editions of “Triumph and Tragedy” will air on the MLB Network in the coming months. Great news!

      I caught the last 15 minutes of it about a week ago and I haven’t seen it replayed since. What I saw was really good stuff.

      Set your DVR MJ – it’s on again, as I mentioned in the update.

      It’s a great watch that’ll keep you from reaching for the remote.

      I remember when that nasty Padres-Braves brawl fest took place. That was basically 1998 Yankees-Orioles-Armando Benitez times four. How ironic that Joe Torre was in the dugout for both of those.

      If MLBN did a one hour show on the ’84 Padres with the tragedies that befell them afterward with Alan Wiggins, Eric Show & Dave Dravecky, they could have a three hour show on the ’86 Mets.
