Padres Editorial: Optimizing the Padres 2016 Lineup

September 28, 2015

With the San Diego Padres season dwindling toward its end point, there is no better time than now to start looking forward to 2016 and how the Padres lineup will be constructed. The Padres have been both consistent and inconsistent up and down the lineup throughout the season due to both injuries and up and down performance. Certain positions have seen more turmoil than others, however there has been some…


Chargers Editorial: Woodhead Must Remain Healthy

September 18, 2015

Following a Week 1 come from behind win the San Diego Chargers are definitely riding high as they prepare for their Week 2 matchup against the Cincinnati Bengals on Sunday. While the Chargers defense was able to stifle the Detroit Lions in the second half, and their offense was able to gain yards and put up points quite efficiently, the win did not come without some question marks on both…


Padres Rumors: Melvin Upton Jr- Potential Trade Option?

September 16, 2015

The trade heard round the world. A mere hours before the start of the 2015 season, the man who had the whole baseball world on edge from mid-December into early April made one last trade to complete a whirlwind off-season. The final piece in what was supposed to be a San Diego Padres playoff team. Obviously hindsight is always 20/20 but looking back the Padres had a lot of high…


Padres Editorial: Was this Yonder Alonso’s Last Season in San Diego?

September 15, 2015

As most know by now, Yonder Alonso has not played since injury his back on a slide into home on August 31st. Alonso had a previous back injury earlier in the season and the slide only re-aggravated this injury. Following the injury it became clear that Alonso would miss some significant time but over the last week it has become more likely that Alonso will most likely not play again…


Padres News: Brewer’s Banter

1. Yonder Alonso’s Injury It looks like Yonder Alonso’s most recent injury will likely be a season ending injury for the Padres 1st baseman. With this injury it seems likely that Wil Myers will get a majority of the playing time at first base with Brett Wallace also receiving a decent amount of playing time on top of that. With Wil Myers enjoying playing at first base, and playing the…


Padres Editorial: Is Derek Norris a Bust?

September 8, 2015

It was December 19th, 2014 and A.J. Preller was a busy man. Directly following the completions of trades that sent the Padres top two catchers, Yasmani Grandal, to the Dodgers for Matt Kemp, and Rene Rivera, to the Tampa Bay Rays as part of a bigger package for Wil Myers, Preller shipped out one of the Padres rising stars, pitcher Jesse Hahn, to Oakland in return for a 2014 all-star catcher…

August 25, 2015

Now that the initial Travis Jankowski and Colin Rea mania has calmed down, it is as good a time as ever to assess which Padre prospect will be next to head to the major leagues for a debut or return to the major leagues following some time in the minors.

1.Chase Utley to the…. Dodgers? Every year there is at least a few waiver wire deals made in August with several contending teams doing anything possible in an attempt to make their team just a little bit better. This trend continued on Wednesday evening when the Los Angeles Dodgers completed a trade for Chase Utley. Yes the Los Angeles Dodgers, who now have a payroll that is about to eclipse…


Padres Special: Brewer’s Banter

August 14, 2015

1. Pat Murphy With every game that goes by, I like Pat Murphy less and less. When he was first hired to replace Bud Black it seemed like it was going to be refreshing and a change that would help out the team. Bud Black was too complacent as a manager and never seemed to get past just being the nice guy who put up with mediocrity. Pat Murphy was…


Padres Rumors: Is Shawn Kelley an August Trade Option?

The July 31st trade deadline came and went with a lot of inaction from the San Diego Padres. Many trades were expected with only one coming to fruition.

With the waiver wire deadline coming at the end of August, the Padres have quite a few options to correct the mistakes made…
