Padres Rumors: Elvis Andrus for James Shields Might Work

The Texas Rangers came very close to advancing in the American League Divisional Series. A couple of errors in the seventh inning of the decisive game five of the ALCS by Elvis Andrus helped the Toronto Blue Jays rally to win the game 6-3. These errors were a huge disappointment.

Padres News: Should the Padres Bring Back Brett Wallace?

Lost in the seemingly endless sea of A.J. Preller’s off-season acquisitions was the quiet signing of Brett Wallace to a minor league contract with an invite to Spring training. Wallace obviously lacks the star power or name recognition of the likes of Matt Kemp, Justin Upton, Wil Myers or James Shields, but he represented a very low risk, high reward addition to the roster. Wallace did not see much playing…

The San Diego Padres need for a shortstop is clearly evident. Everyone around the game of baseball is aware of their need. The 2015 season saw the Padres start Clint Barmes, Alexi Amarista, Will Middlebrooks and Jedd Gyorko at the position. None of the four are viable players at a position of much importance to a team. You cannot continue to put mediocre talent out on the field every night…
