Series Preview: The Padres Face a Resurging Dodgers’ Team in Los Angeles

The Padres will fly across the country to play their third series against the Dodgers this year. Los Angeles swept the Padres in mid-April, and two games ended with the embarrassingly lopsided scores of 10-3 and 13-4. The next series, considered a home series for the Padres, actually took place in Monterrey, Mexico. The Padres took two of three after suffering a combined no-hitter in the first game, a 4-0…

Don’t Give Up on Manuel Margot Just Yet

I don’t think anybody expected this article to be written when spring training opened just three months ago. Manuel Margot was unanimously seen as the rangy center fielder of the future and a staple atop the Padres’ lineup for years to come. When Eric Hosmer was acquired for, at least, the next five seasons, speculation regarding possible outfield configurations were immediately a hot topic of discussion. Wil Myers made his…

Five Possible Trade Destinations for Tyson Ross

The San Diego Padres are going to trade Tyson Ross. Well, they hope so at least. Ross held the Pirates to two earned runs over six innings in his last outing. After two injury-marred seasons, performances like that have continued what has been a bounce-back campaign for the right-handed hurler. Ross has compiled a 3.35 ERA through nine starts while striking out 55 in 53.2 innings. His performance so far…
