What is the Future For Padres’ Christian Villanueva?

September 17, 2018

With Wil Myers playing everyday at third base, what is the future for Christian Villanueva. He certainly put up decent numbers in his first season in the major leagues, but is he part of the teams plans for 2019 and beyond? The San Diego Padres had some uncertainties to start the season at third base. During the offseason, Padres general manager A.J. Preller acquired third baseman Chase Headley and Bryan…


Aztecs’ Juwan Washington is Poised for a Breakout Campaign

The San Diego State Aztec football team is no joke. Coming off a 10-3 season and a second place finish in the Mountain West standings, Rocky Long and his Aztecs are ready to make some noise in 2018. Once again, Long has put together a solid squad and one that should contend for a Mountain West title as well as a Bowl Game bid. If the Aztecs are truly going…


The Dominance of the Padres’ Bullpen

August 7, 2018

There haven’t been many positives to take away from the San Diego Padres this season. Holders of the worst record in the National League, the Padres are still in prime rebuild mode as they await the waves of incoming, young talent making its way to Petco Park in the near future. One thing the team and its fans should be excited about, however, is the emergence of a bullpen that…


It’s Time for the Padres to Promote Luis Urias

August 2, 2018

To put this nicely, the San Diego Padres have not played very good baseball this year. Coming off a month in which they went 5-20, it appears that the Padres are well on their way to just another disappointing season. The one thing the team does have going for them, however, is a promising minor league system full of talent from top to bottom. At the very top of that…


Brett Kennedy Deserves a Big League Call-Up

July 28, 2018

The San Diego Padres pitching staff this season has not been very good, to say the least. In terms of ERA, the Padres currently rank 20th as a staff and have given up the ninth-most runs in baseball. While the bullpen has held its own for the majority of the season, the Padres’ starting rotation has been a roller coaster ride all year. Sure, Tyson Ross has been solid all…

Bryan Mitchell’s Time May Be Over in Padres’ Rotation

May 6, 2018

This previous offseason, the San Diego Padres acquired Chase Headley and Bryan Mitchell from the New York Yankees in exchange for Jabari Blash. At the time, the trade appeared to be a brilliant move by Padres general manager A.J. Preller. Blash, a career minor leaguer, really had no impact on the team and the Padres’ haul appeared to be a good one. While Chase Headley has been a serviceable big…

Should Manuel Margot be the Padres Leadoff Hitter?

April 5, 2018

When the Padres brought in Matt Stairs to be their hitting coach this offseason, the club’s entire offensive mentality changed. Stairs’ philosophy is simple: be patient at the plate and find ways to get on base. After ranking dead last in on base percentage last season, the Padres are hopeful that this new approach will allow them to take strides to what they want to become in the future. We…


Christian Villanueva’s Big Night Proves Why He Should be the Padres Starting Third Baseman

April 4, 2018

When the Padres acquired Chase Headley from the New York Yankees this offseason, it was immediately implied that the former Padre himself would man the hot corner come Opening Day. Headley was indeed Andy Green‘s selection for the third base job out of spring training, but a recent slew of struggles on his part has opened up the race to be the Padres’ everyday third baseman. That race should be…


A Review of the 2018 Fort Wayne TinCaps

April 2, 2018

The San Diego Padres’ farm system is often regarded as one of the best, if not the best, farm systems in all of major league baseball. The job that the team’s front office has done in constructing an excellent system from the ruins left behind of an old regime is truly amazing. Of all the talent scattered around the Padres’ minor league affiliates, the Fort Wayne TinCaps will look to build…
