Padres Vets Will Bring Youth (At the 2017 Trade Deadline) – A Way Too Early Look at the Padres Trade Deadline Candidates

March 17, 2017

Las Vegas oddsmakers have spoken, and the San Diego Padres find themselves at the bottom of the pack with an over/under of 67.5 wins, dead last in their 2017 MLB projections. This should come as no surprise to many fans, with some even welcoming the possibility of a future #1 overall pick in the 2018 draft. Assuming the 2017 season heads in the direction Vegas thinks it will, we will…


Will the Padres Trade Spangenberg or Schimpf?

March 2, 2017

The San Diego Padres have structured their team to be competitive in the near future. The 2017 season will probably not be a productive year for the major league team, but there will still be plenty of things to look forward to if you are a Padre fan. The Padres’ minor league system is currently stacked with young talent. From the Dominican Summer League to the Triple-A level, the Padres…


Can Cory Spangenberg Reclaim His Starting Job?

December 10, 2016

  A first round pick in 2011,  Cory Spangenberg was a San Diego Padres top prospect up until his debut in 2014. Lauded for his ability to put bat on ball, he hit .294 in his time in the minors. When Jedd Gyorko became the starting second baseman in 2013, Spangenberg no longer was the top option at second. The Padres began experimenting with him in the outfield, but once Gyorko was…


San Diego Padres & Los Angeles Angels Talking Trade?

December 7, 2016

On Tuesday afternoon Jeff Fletcher, beat writer for the Los Angeles Angels and writer for the Orange County Register, tweeted: Heard the #Angels have been talking to Padres, who have 4 LH IF’s who can play 2B: Solarte, Schmipf, Spangenberg and Asuaje. — Jeff Fletcher (@JeffFletcherOCR) December 6, 2016 It makes a lot of sense for both sides to be talking as the Angels need a second baseman and also…


Should the Padres Bring Back Jon Jay in 2017?

November 5, 2016

It’s official. The 2016 Major League Baseball season is over. For a few clubs it will be a season to remember. For the San Diego Padres, save a few great moments, it was not the finest. I believe however, that 2016 will be remembered as the turning point during which the Padres’ strategy towards success finally became apparent. After the 2015 season, into the off-season and through the first half…


Padres PNO (Positives/Negatives/Outlook) Ryan Schimpf

October 17, 2016

Though the 2016 San Diego Padres season has been brutal to watch as a whole, there have been numerous things that have been a positive. One of the most surprising and pleasant things about the season has been the emergence of Ryan Schimpf from seemingly out of nowhere. The rookie infielder/outfielder slugged 20 homers this season in 89 games for the Padres. He totaled a .869 OPS and a 130…


Never Too Early Padres’ Infield Preview

October 8, 2016

The San Diego Padres go into the off-season with a set of young core players, but with few positional promises, to open up 2017. Suffice it to say, it is insanely early to predict what the 25-man roster will be, and many transactions over the course of continuing the rebuilding process will undoubtedly happen during the off season. Nevertheless, regardless of how different things may look on Opening Day in…


Padres PNO (Positives/Negatives/Outlook) Yangervis Solarte

October 4, 2016

In 2016 the San Diego Padres have faced many adversities, but nothing the team has had to battle can compare to the year Yangervis Solarte has had. The Padres Venezuelan infielder recently lost his wife after a battle with Cancer. Her loss was deeply felt by the organization as well as all of Major League Baseball. You can only imagine how difficult this has been for Solarte as he is…


Top Five Moments of the 2016 Padres Season

September 24, 2016

  When I was asked by my editor to do a top moments story for this Padres season, I thought about diverting from the straight and narrow. I thought about writing a “San Diego Padres 2016: the Good the Bad and the Ugly.” There is absolutely plenty of material to fill pages when focusing on each of those three aspects to the season. I want to be a realist. The…


Padres Series Preview: Snakes Come to Town For Last Time in 2016

September 19, 2016

The San Diego Padres are coming off a dreadful series against the Colorado Rockies. The Padres would lose all three games of the series as they would get outscored 22-10. This would really turn out to be one of the poorest performances the team has had all year. Well now it’s time to move on from that series and start a new one. The Padres will take on the Arizona…

The 2016 MLB season is winding down to the last few series of the year. The San Diego Padres will face the Colorado Rockies for the last time in 2016 this weekend. The three-game set will be played at the hitters sanctuary which is Coors Field. The Rockies and Padres have really provided great games throughout this 2016 campaign.

Padres Series Recap: Padres Sweep Giants Once Again

September 15, 2016

The long and winding MLB season is filled with many twist, turns and surprises. Well this 2016 season has been more unpredictable than ever especially for the San Diego Padres. The Padres would of course struggle severely against the San Francisco Giants in the beginning of the season. In fact they would end up losing the first nine games that they would play against them. Well the Giants and Padres…
