Padres Come Home (But Only for Two Games) To Battle Athletics

Some Padres Have Added “Trade Value” This 2018 Season

The 2018 baseball season has been a quiet success for the Padres, as they sit only five games under .500 and 6.5 games from first place. The maturation of young players, as well as the contributions of veterans, have led to the Padres being watchable this year.

Fathers and Sons in MLB

I just became a father a few weeks ago and my little son has already “watched” a ton of baseball with me. It’s how a lot of us learned baseball. Whether it was with our dad, grandpa, uncle, or whoever, we learned baseball likely through the father figure in our lives. Baseball has a special place in mine and my dad’s relationship. He coached my little league team for six…

Fathers, Sons & The Game of Baseball

Happy Father’s Day As someone who has lost both their father and their son, the Father’s Day holiday has a bittersweet taste to it. The game of baseball reminds me of both, and what was forever taken from me. Perhaps that is why my love is so deep for the sport. I have fewer and fewer thoughts of each, as the brutality of time erases the painful memories of their…

Ranking the Depth of Each Position in the Padres Farm System

I don’t need to tell you that the San Diego Padres’ system is stacked. Fangraphs recently did an article on it and stated “this is the best system in baseball…” What we are going to dive in to here is where they are stacked. The true beauty of this farm system is that it is not our “savior” Fernando Tatis Jr. at the top and then a bunch of scrubs. Tatis could…
