Padres Game Recap: Padres Avoid Sweep Win 3-1

Padres Editorial: Following the Padres from 2,500 Miles Away

The house I grew up in was (and still is) about 120 miles away my father’s beloved New York Mets. That distance seems like nothing nowadays, but for out-of-market martyrs like my dad back in the ‘70s and early ‘80s, it might might as well have been 2,120 miles.

Padres Minor League Spotlight: Jose Rondon

Padres News: Does Solarte Deserve to Play Instead of Gyroko?

The off-season for the San Diego Padres was memorable as A.J. Preller totally overhauled an offense that was abysmal to watch. Closely watching Padres games last season the whole team just seemed lost at the plate. Everyone on the whole team except for maybe Seth Smith and Yangervis Solarte were consistent easy outs. Will Venable and Chase Headley both regressed and Carlos Quentin was hurt as usual. Seth Smith was…
