Wil Myers was supposed to be the face of the San Diego Padres. Coming off a phenomenal 2016 season where he was moved from the outfield to first base full-time, Myers was able to suit up for a career-high 157 games, slashing .259/.336/.461 in the process.

Are Wil Myers’ Leadership Abilities Valid?

February 6, 2018

I recently wrote a piece about the San Diego Padres and their current lack of leadership. Almost immediately, critics of Wil Myers came out and demanded clarity in my opinion that Myers provides leadership qualities for the San Diego Padres. Well, here it goes. If you are looking for someone to get in a player’s face and shun them for a performance detrimental to the success of the team, then…


Wil Myers’ Changed Approach

May 2, 2017

  The 2017 San Diego Padres aren’t good. But we all knew that. With that being said, there is no shortage of interesting storylines to watch with the 2017 version of the Padres. From the rookie seasons of Manuel Margot and Hunter Renfroe to the re-emergence of Austin Hedges to the trio of Rule 5’ers, Padre fans have plenty of fun players to watch this season, even with a losing…


Wil Myers is Clearly the Face of the San Diego Padres

March 16, 2017

The San Diego Padres have put a whole lot of weight behind their plan to build a championship team from the ground up. The agenda has been formulated around a dramatic accumulation of very young, raw talent with high upside, to flood the farm system, and provide a bevy of options at essentially every position in the coming years. Much of this talent is coming from the international market; though…


The Wonderful, Wacky (and Worrying) Season of Wil Myers

December 16, 2016

Coming off two injury-plagued seasons in which both wrists had separately shelved him for significant time, heading into the 2016 season much was made about the ability of Wil Myers to stay healthy. A full year of a productive Myers was considered essential for the Padres to have any hope of a respectable season, much less a successful one. Given that both his previous injuries revolved around his wrists, some…

September 21, 2016

Two months ago, it all seemed so easy. San Diego Padres first baseman Wil Myers was in the midst of a breakout campaign, playing the best ball of his career since the second half of the 2013 season. One that saw him win the A.L. Rookie of the Year award with the Tampa Bay Rays. Entering the All-Star break, Myers had played his way into the hearts of Padres fans…


Wil Myers – First Padres 25/25 Man & He Could Get Better

September 20, 2016

Wil Myers keeps growing and growing as a player and with that he is feeling a lot better at the plate recently.  Despite a recent hitting slump, the 25-year old All-Star first baseman recently went into the San Diego Padres organization history books. He became the first Padre to ever post a season with 25-or-more doubles, 25-or-more home runs and 25-or-more stolen bases. On September 16, the first game of…


Padres Editorial: Can San Diego Sign Myers to a Long-Term Deal?

July 2, 2016

After quite a hectic month, June has finally come to an end. While every player has up and down months, no player had a bigger up month in June than San Diego Padres first baseman Wil Myers. After a solid start in the first two months of the year, Myers took it to a whole new level in June. Now that June has come to an end, the historic nature…
