DAILY LINKS: Aztecs fall flat at home vs. Fresno State

SDSU’s momentum evaporates in loss to Fresno State – San Diego Union-Tribune
The Aztecs (16-11, 8-7) had won five of six, their best six-game stretch of the season, and the maddening habit of morphing from rolling to reeling in a matter of minutes seemed to be a bad memory – along with the specter of the Wednesday play-in game at the Mountain West tournament next month.

Apparently not.

Padres might go outside the box with starting pitching strategy – San Diego Union-Tribune
It goes something like this: The Padres could open a game with a certain pitcher, having that arm go only an inning or two. They could then bring in another, preferably opposite-handed pitcher who would proceed as if he were the traditional starter.

Such a plan ostensibly would force the opposition into a bit of a dilemma while potentially boosting a Padres unit that, without having pitched a game, already may be the most maligned throughout baseball.

‘Q’ would be saved under rival NFL stadium, soccer plan – San Diego Union-Tribune
As an alternative to the recently unveiled SoccerCity plan in Mission Valley, developer Doug Manchester is working on a proposal to remodel Qualcomm Stadium for professional soccer, football and the Aztecs; build an NBA sports arena; and provide for a lower-density housing and commercial development with less traffic from the city’s 166-acre property, consultants said Wednesday.

EDITORIAL: ‘SoccerCity’ earns red card – The Daily Aztec
For SDSU and the community it serves, this proposal is a non-starter.

SDSU released a statement Monday that took issue with two facets of the initiative — First, that the proposed stadium is not expandable to 40,000 seats, and secondly that the university would not have “revenue or rights of ownership” of it.

While the university is right to take issue with these points, it is only the tip of the iceberg FS Investors is trying to steer San Diego voters into.
