Framing the Friars: Myers Inching Closer to Career-High in Home Runs

August 9, 2017

  Wil Myers hit another home run, his 22nd of the season, during the San Diego Padres’ 8-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on August 9.

Padres Trade Talk: Is Trading Wil Myers Really an Option?

July 16, 2017

The Padres are expected to be one of the busier teams at the trade deadline this year – that is no secret. Sitting solidly in fourth place in the division thanks to those even-worse baseballers from the Bay Area, and firmly entrenched in a full-scale rebuild centered around being awful for the next few years, anyone on the roster with a hint of talent and a contract that expires anytime…


Shaping the Padres 2018 Starting Lineup

June 27, 2017

It is safe to say that the Padres’ 2017 season has gone exactly how ‘informed’ Padres fan have wanted it to go. The team is currently 18 1/2 games out of first place and is trending downwards (Side note: it is incredible how awful the Giants have been this year).

Attempting to Solve Wil Myers’ Slump

June 19, 2017

Given how small-scale baseball can be, players are required to make constant micro-adjustments…


Padres Editorial: Wil Myers Struggling To Find His Stride

June 15, 2017

It’s no secret that Wil Myers has been struggling at the plate so far this season. The Padres’ highest-paid player, and the guy expected to be a leader in the clubhouse, hasn’t quite lived up to the hype this season. Through June 11, Myers has a .256 batting average. Now, batting average isn’t something people like to use anymore to evaluate hitters. People hold on-base percentage and slugging percentage to…


Wil Myers Gives Back To Community

December 1, 2016

The offseason has been hard on us baseball fans. Turning on the TV without seeing a fly ball, or even a strike, is unbearable, as we wait to see our San Diego Padres team back in action again. With that being said, it is nice to see some of our favorite players giving back to the community and one in particular is; first baseman Wil Myers. When he is not…
