Minnesota Twins Viable Candidate for a Brad Hand Trade with Padres

December 4, 2017

As the MLB Winter Meetings begin December 10 in Orlando, Florida, the name Brad Hand will surely come up. He is one of the best relievers available on the trade market and teams are conscious that A.J. Preller is not shy about pulling the trigger on a deal. You can link the prized left-handed pitcher to virtually any team that is in contention. From the Cubs and Yankees, to the Dodgers…


Can the Padres End Up With Hunter Greene?

April 29, 2017

  I want to be completely honest with you. I’ve never felt the need to pay any attention to MLB draft prospects, let alone high school draft prospects.Up until last year, I never even watched the draft or bothered to look who the Padres picked. Things have changed. If you don’t already know, Hunter Greene of Notre Dame High School is the consensus top draft prospect. The Padres hold the…


Minnesota Twins and San Diego Padres Are Logical Trade Partners

November 20, 2016

While the San Diego Padres finished the 2016 season with a much improved farm system, the big league roster was left with more questions than answers. Not only is the Padres rotation a giant question mark, and the organization has too many outfielders for one outfield, but the Padres currently have three catchers slated to be on the big league roster. The Padres may have solved part of the problem…


Padres’ Oswaldo Arcia Showing Power Early

September 1, 2016

On Tuesday night the San Diego Padres suffered a 7-3 loss to the Braves in the series opener in Atlanta. There was one player responsible for those three Padre runs. Who was that player? His name is Oswaldo Arcia. He went two for three with a hustle-double, a moonshot dinger and an RBI ground out. Not only that, but he made a pretty sweet catch in right field to rob…


Padres Rumors: Can & Will The Team Move Matt Kemp?

December 19, 2015

There have been constant rumors swirling that the San Diego Padres would love to get out of the contract of Matt Kemp. That is really no secret as the $86 million ($72 owed by the Padres) for the next four seasons is a bit restricting to the budget of the Padres. The team is beginning to have remorse for the deal that brought Kemp and Tim Federowicz to the Padres…


Padres News:Trade Target-Trevor Plouffe

November 28, 2015

With the poor season of Will Middlebrooks and the up and down season of Jedd Gyorko fresh on Padre fans minds, the Padres could certainly use some upgraded depth in the infield. Yangervis Solarte had a strong season at third base in 2015, while Gyorko had a strong second half of the season at second base/shortstop. Despite these strong seasons for both players, the Padres could still be in the…


Padres News: Padres Claim Catcher Josmil Pinto From Twins

November 20, 2015

The off-season continues to be a one of mystery for San Diego Padres fans. The team announced on Friday that they have claimed Catcher/DH Jose Pinto from the Minnesota Twins. It seems strange to put in a claim on a catcher when the team already has two quality catchers in Derek Norris and Austin Hedges. Does this mean a trade is imminent and one of the 2015 catchers will be…

Padres Rumors: Let the Trade Talk Begin- Minnesota Twins

April 29, 2015

With all the upgrade to the San Diego Padres team there are still some missing pieces to a potential play-off team. Among one of the issues has been the play at shortstop. Where Alexi Amarista has been adequate at best. His career sub .300 on base percentage leads most to believe he is not capable of starting everyday. The Minnesota Twins have a lot of youth, almost ready at the…
