Padres grab Collin Cowgill on Minor League Deal

February 10, 2017

The Padres seem to be overstocked in the outfield, however adding a veteran mind to a young and inexperienced outfield can do no harm. Collin Cowgill, the 30-year-old veteran outfielder, will be among the mix of non-roster invites (Rafael Ortega, Jabari Blash, and Nick Buss) battling for a spot on the major league roster this spring. The Padres may have remembered Collin Cowgill from the New York Mets opening day…

A Glimpse at New Padres’ Outfielder Rafael Ortega

December 27, 2016

The San Diego Padres may have the need for some extra outfielders in the 2017 season. Hunter Renfroe and Travis Jankowski will probably both start for the team, but Manuel Margot may begin the season in the minors, depending on whether or not the Padres want to start his service-time clock.

Padres DFA Oswaldo Arcia & Brett Wallace

November 18, 2016

The 2016 San Diego Padres season had many twists and turns. There were a lot of new faces on the squad, as the current regime attempted to put their own look on a franchise that has been mostly a disappointment throughout the years.

Padres Fans Need to Temper Expectations About Renfroe’s Future

September 30, 2016

Everyone mind the gap as you climb aboard the Hunter Renfroe hype train. The 24-year-old outfielder is a curious player, to me. I think we would all do well to pump the brakes a little on the unbridled enthusiasm. The last time the San Diego Padres had a home-grown prospect with this much expectation was Chase Headley. Fans thought he would make the big leagues and start collecting all-star appearances…

Gene Richards, the Definitive Padre Leadoff Hitter & Prospective Padre Hall of Famer

September 8, 2016

History is something that the Padres organization has never been extremely good at. Many think that the history of the team is not that great and is somewhat shallow. To extinguish that idea, the San Diego Padres, at the beginning of July, to the fanfare of a large blue ribbon and a large scissor clad Randy Jones, opened the San Diego Padres Hall of Fame Museum at the North West…

Though the team is stacked with quality young outfielders the Padres are having internal discussions about the possibility of re-signing Jay. When cultivating talent on a baseball team you need to have some veteran presence. Jay would easily provide that as he is one of the most well-respected players…
