Padres Minors: Minor League Pitcher Michael Kelly Emerging at the Right Time

The Padres really need help in that area. Michael Kelly was recently promoted from Lake Elsinore…

Padres Series Preview: Padres Set to Battle Rockies at Petco Park

The San Diego Padres are coming off an appalling series against the Seattle Mariners. Now the Padres will definitely look to turn things around against the Colorado Rockies.

Padres Series Recap: Padres Finish Off 4-game Set in Embarrassing Manner

The San Diego Padres have just lost three out of four games from the Seattle Mariners. This was an absolutely atrocious series for the Padres.

I’m used to seeing some catastrophic baseball…

Padres Editorial: Fowler’s “Foul” Comments

The words “embarrassing” and “miserable failures” are not the words anybody wants to hear when describing a baseball team. However, those were the words that Padres executive chairman Ron Fowler chose when conducting an interview with Mighty 1090 Wednesday morning. Fowler apparently decided that he was going to get on the air and blast his very own team. To me, this was one of the most unnecessary and unprofessional interviews…
