Bolaños Improves but Still Suffers Loss for Storm

Lake Elsinore, California Ronald Bolanos is a name that gets lost in the mix when it comes to Padres’ prospects. The big right-hander signed for $2.25 million in the summer of 2016 and was a highly touted pitcher out of Cuba. He has a good three-pitch mix (fastball, curveball, slider) that can make hitters look foolish at times while touching 95 MPH, but the problem for him has been keeping…

Where the Padres Top 30 Prospects Are Starting, and Goals For Each

The Minor League Baseball season has begun and it is looking like, at least for another year, that is where Padres fans will find the most enjoyment. The Padres have not gotten off to a hot start, but they have an embarrassment of riches sprinkled all over their farm system.

Happy Jackie Robinson Day

The San Diego Padres, like every other major league baseball team, retired the number 42. No other major league player in the history of the game may wear that number again.

Only major leaguers who currently wore the number could retain it. New York…

Military Appreciation Sunday & The Padres Legendary “Camo’s”

It is another bright, cloudless, blue-skied, San Diego Sunday afternoon, hopefully with that great, cool ocean breeze. The grass at Petco Park, in its alternating shades of green rows, which sometimes are straight, other times slightly crossing, are crisp and sparkling. The brownish hue from the dirt radiates. The senses, as you walk up to the field from the north side entrance, amidst the Park at the Park in right…
