Last week's Dodgers-Padres brawl had serious repercussions for both teams on the injury and suspension fronts, but it's also the impetus for some potential public relations problems in San Diego.

Mitt Romney may have lost the 2012 presidential election for what he said when he thought he was in private company, and it seems Padres president and CEO Tom Garfinkel has made a similar gaffe.

Yahoo! Sports obtained audio of Garfinkel, who was speaking to a group of about 50 Padres season ticket holders (Who knew there were even 50 Padres season ticket holders?), not only blaming Zack Greinke for the broken collarbone he suffered after Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin charged the mound, but poking fun at the pitcher's battle with social anxiety disorder.

"He threw at him on purpose, OK?" Garfinkel said at Petco Park the day after the fight. "That's what happened. They can say 3-and-2 count, 2-1 game, no one does that. Zack Greinke is a different kind of guy. Anyone seen 'Rain Man'? He's a very smart guy."
