August 28, 2015

There are many interesting aspects to this 2015 San Diego Padres season. One of the most pressing questions heading into the off-season is which starting pitcher will the team consider its catcher of the future?

Padres Rumors: Who Will Be Starting SS in 2016?

August 27, 2015

Jedd Gyorko has made a decent run at playing shortstop for the San Diego Padres, but he is by no means an everyday, long-term option there. The Padres are surely going to address the hole at shortstop eventually, but who can the team acquire via trade or free agency for the 2016 season?

August 24, 2015

On Easter Sunday when the San Diego Padres acquired arguably the best closer in the game (Craig Kimbrel), they had to take on the contract of Melvin Upton Jr. The contract is not the most team friendly as Upton Jr has struggled to be consistent since signing the deal with the Atlanta Braves.

Padres News: Ian Kennedy & the Potential Compensation Pick

August 23, 2015

It is very important that Ian Kennedy has a great end of the season for the San Diego Padres.

Chargers News: Denzel Perryman Provides Leadership

August 20, 2015

The San Diego Chargers have struck gold in the line backer department. The current group of linebackers led by Donald Butler, Manti Te’o and Melvin Ingram now have an influence of youth.

Padres Editorial: Can the Padres Afford Justin Upton?

August 17, 2015

The 2015 season has been a surprise for most San Diego Padres fans. The anticipation of a winning season was high, but the team has struggled to play with any kind of consistency all season long.
