The San Diego Padres season has not gone well but within all the pain there have been some stories that certainly stand out as a positive thing. One particular note that has been developing in the recent weeks is the emergence of veteran minor league pitcher Seth Simmons.

Best Chargers’ QB- Dan Fouts or Philip Rivers?

The San Diego Chargers are a blessed franchise as they have had two of the best quarterbacks in the history of the game. Dan Fouts is already a Hall-Of-Fame quarterback and most suspect that one day Philip Rivers will too be enshrined in the most prestigious of clubs. Comparing the two can be very difficult as each played in completely different eras. Fouts era in the late 70’s and 80’s…


The Chargers & The Joey Bosa Stalemate

The days leading up to the draft were filled with mystery for San Diego Chargers fans, as speculation ran rampant over which player the team would select with the No. 3 overall pick. Perhaps Jalen Ramsey, considered by some analysts to be the best defensive player available.

Padres Claim Outfielder Oswaldo Arcia from Marlins

The position player merry-go-round continues for the San Diego Padres as the team has made yet another waiver wire claim.

The Progression of Padres’ Minor League Pitcher Walker Lockett

There is no doubt that the San Diego Padres are lacking starting pitchers in the upper minor league levels. The team was gutted of many of its older pitching prospects in the last few years by A.J. Preller as he reshapes the Padres minor league system. In the Padres A-Ball level the team has many terrific young arms. Anderson Espinoza, Logan Allen, Jacob Nix, Austin Smith, Enyel De Los Santos,…

Padres’ Minor Leaguer Nick Torres Interviewed

The trade deadline had just passed so I refreshed my browser a few more times before calling, half expecting some under-the-radar deal to have slipped through the cracks of the headlines. I wouldn’t have faulted any MLB insiders for it. Or anyone else for that matter. Hell, everyone was still busy wrapping their heads around all of the Marlins gum-flapping and take-backs from the Cashner-Rea trade. Two years later and…
