The Padres might suck … but here’s something about the team that doesn’t — Craig Stammen‘s epic Trevor Hoffman socks!!
The team’s honoring its newest Hall of Famer this weekend with a statue and a bunch of cool Hoffman giveaways … but Craig got an early jump on the celebration with some heat on his feet.
Craig Stammen’s sock game: Strong.
Craig Stammen’s 8th inning: Also strong.

The socks feature the Padres’ legendary closer mid-windup, surrounded by flames — which is appropriate, since the dude’s walk-up song WAS “Hells Bells.”
FYI — Stance makes the gear — and a pair goes for about $20 … but looks like they’re only available at Petco Park’s team store.
As for Craig … he threw a perfect, 7-pitch eighth inning … but, of course, the Pads still lost.
Sweet socks, though!
