Wil Myers is Certainly Missed by the San Diego Padres

May 7, 2018

Wil Myers signed an extension with the San Diego Padres after the 2016 season. A wide belief within the organization, and the fanbase, was that Myers would become a leader in the clubhouse. Unfortunately, that was not the case. This previous offseason, the Padres went out and signed Eric Hosmer to an eight-year deal. On top of Hosmer being a fantastic baseball player, the Padres valued his leadership abilities and…


San Diego Padres Over/Under Win Total for 2018

March 31, 2018

The San Diego Padres are predicted to win 69.5 games in the 2018 season by oddsmakers. For a team that won 71 games in 2017, and picked up Eric Hosmer, 69.5 wins seems low. I am definitely going with the over here. I understand this is arguably the best division in baseball, and the Padres may be still in “rebuilding” mode, but the injuries in the NL West will help…


Fernando Tatis Jr. Is the Best Prospect I Have Ever Seen

March 8, 2018

The San Diego Padres have had spectacular players come up through the farm system over the years. Khalil Greene, Dave Winfield, Randy Jones, Jake Peavy, Chase Headley, Tony Gwynn. The list goes on and on. Well, maybe it doesn’t, but things are changing. A.J. Preller has stocked the Padres’ farm system like it has never been before. With the waves of talent coming up in the next few years, Fernando…


Eric Hosmer Wants Eight-Year Deal

January 17, 2018

On Monday afternoon, I received the honor of talking to USA Today and MLB Network Insider Bob Nightengale. We had an in-depth conversation about the San Diego Padres and Eric Hosmer, the hot topic around town. The thing that stuck out to me in our conversation was when I asked Mr. Nightengale about any new Eric Hosmer information. He said that the first baseman is “looking for an eight-year deal,…


Boise State Loss Was Tough, But Aztecs Poised to Survive

October 18, 2017

The San Diego State Aztecs were 6-0 and ranked #19 going into Saturday’s contest against Boise State. They exited the contest with a record of 6-1 and out of the AP Top 25. This was their first loss of the season, but this is not the only number to recognize from this weekend. The Aztecs announced that the attendance was 49,053 on Saturday night at SDCCU stadium. The crowd came…


What is Yangervis Solarte’s Future With the Padres?

October 10, 2017

Many San Diego sports fans say the Padres still have at least two years until they are able to make a run for the wild card, or maybe even the division. With the N.L. West having solid infielders like the Dodgers’ Corey Seager, Diamondbacks’ Paul Goldschmidt, Giants’ Brandon Crawford, and of course the Rockies’ Nolan Arenado, there is a valid question looming in San Diego and that is where Yangervis Solarte will…


Manuel Margot Has Huge Impact on the Padres

August 8, 2017

Padre fans know Manuel Margot as their leadoff hitter and their rookie center fielder. He is actually much more than that to the team. The Padres obtained Manuel Margot from the Red Sox last season in exchange for Craig Kimbrel. That trade worked out very well for San Diego as they also acquired Logan Allen, Carlos Asuaje, and Javier Guerra. Margot is a 22-year-old outfielder who is five feet-eleven inches and…


Maurer, Buchter & Cahill’s San Diego Careers Come to an End

July 25, 2017

A.J. Preller and the Padres traded pitchers Trevor Cahill, Ryan Buchter, and Brandon Maurer to the Kansas City Royals for Matt Strahm, Travis Wood, and Esteury Ruiz. Many Padres fans probably do not like the deal because they really liked Cahill, Buchter, and Maurer, because they were solid pitchers on the major league club. If you are following the Padres more than just the casual fan, then you may like…
