Koke’s Korner: Padres to go with a 6-man rotation?

Could the Padres go with a 6-man rotation in 2016? The Padres lack of depth in the upper minor league system but that doesn’t negate going into the 2016 season with more than five candidates that seem to be viable options after Tyson Ross, James Shields and Andrew Cashner. Those immediate candidates don’t include potential late off-season additions, perhaps Tim Lincecum? Lincecum has generated a lot of interest this off-season,…

Padres News: Janssen signing smart move by Padres

The signing of Casey Janssen will prove to be a decent pick-up for the San Diego Padres. The veteran relief pitcher is exactly what the Padres need to fill out their bullpen for the 2016 season.

Jabari Blash,…

Padres News: Future San Diego Padre, Tim Lincecum?

I’ve written about Tim Lincecum several times already this offseason, for better or for worse. I never thought I would be writing this much about someone like Lincecum, but alas, here I am. It seems pretty clear he won’t be headed back to San Francisco for next season, given their completed rotation and his clear desire to be starter in 2016 and beyond. As many as 20 teams have expressed…

Padres News: A look at the Padres current roster

Chargers News: Bringing in Alex Mack at Center

When playing the game of football, the offensive line is key to solidifying the contest. This under-appreciated unit is directly responsible for the flow and momentum of the game. If your offensive line is unable to contain during pass blocking or open holes during run blocking, then it will be a long game and an even longer season. The San Diego Chargers had a very disappointing 4-12 record in 2015…
