Padres Eric Lauer Interview- Progression Through Dedication

February 7, 2017

The San Diego Padres selected Eric Lauer with their 25th overall pick in the 2016 draft. The left-handed pitcher out of Kent State came with the reputation of being a polished pitcher, and he has done absolutely nothing to contradict that assessment.

A Reality Check on the Padres’ Future

August 31, 2016

I’m not optimistic about the San Diego Padres future plan, but I want to be. I have tremendous faith in A.J. Preller as a scout and believe the Padres will draft well under his leadership. However, even the best of scouts misses the mark—a lot. If we are banking our future on long off prospects in the pipeline as that pipeline is now constructed, both the Padres and their fans…

April is finally here and baseball is in full swing. While the San Diego Padres have had quite a roller coaster start to the season, they have recovered nicely after an atrocious start to the season.
