Chargers Editorial: Home Field (Dis)Advantage

Although San Diego Chargers season tickets reached a 7-year high in 2015, this past Monday night at Qualcomm stadium sounded more like a home game for the Chicago Bears than for our Bolts.

Padres News: Brandon Maurer Poised to Be Closer of Future?

With the trade of Joaquin Benoit and Craig Kimbrel, the San Diego Padres find themselves with no proven closer. The team will most likely expect Brandon Maurer to step into the role.

Padres Rumors: Astros Could Be All In on Kimbrel

It seems the San Diego Padres are indeed willing to make some moves this winter. A.J. Preller has already pulled off two deals in the second week of November and the annual winter meetings aren’t even scheduled to start until next month.
