Padres Spring Training Wrap-Up: Day 5 (Hosmer Signs & the Dawn Has Begun)

February 18, 2018

In signing Eric Hosmer to an eight-year deal at $144 million, the San Diego Padres are signifying that they intend to compete soon. We can debate whether that time is now or in 2020, but the front office of this franchise has full intentions to be a serious player in Major League Baseball. San Diegans could not be more excited, as this team has never had a plan set in…


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…


PNO (Positives, Negatives, Outlook) Wil Myers

October 11, 2017

The 2017 Padres season, in a way, was better than expected. While the Padres posted an unimpressive record of 71-91, this year’s campaign was full of excitement in the form of young, talented players performing well and giving the fans hope for the future. While countless writers and analysts virtually confirmed that the Padres would not win more than 50-60 games at the maximum, the team exceeded expectations while also…


Top Moments of the 2017 Season: Wil Myers First Career Cycle

October 9, 2017

The history of the San Diego Padres has only witnessed two cycles, both coming at the hitter-friendly confines of Coors Field in Denver, Colorado. Matt Kemp ended the long, 46-year drought, when he hit for the team’s first cycle on August 15th, 2015. Wil Myers was able to hit for the second cycle in Padres history on April 10th, 2017 which put his name into the Padres’ record book as…


Wil Myers Is Still the Face of the Padres

September 26, 2017

Wil Myers certainly did not have the season most expected him to have. He would be the first to tell you that. In a recent article from’s Nathan Ruiz, Myers said: “All in all, this year’s been a little bit of a disappointment for me, not to be able to put up better numbers more consistently…” Don’t worry, Padres fans. He knows he has to be better. It’s not…


Framing the Friars: Myers Inching Closer to Career-High in Home Runs

August 9, 2017

  Wil Myers hit another home run, his 22nd of the season, during the San Diego Padres’ 8-3 loss to the Cincinnati Reds on August 9. With that blast, Myers moved closer to reaching his career-high for home runs.   He hit 28 dingers last season in his second year with the team.   Last season was also the first year in which Myers played in more than 90 games….


Padres Trade Talk: Is Trading Wil Myers Really an Option?

July 16, 2017

The Padres are expected to be one of the busier teams at the trade deadline this year – that is no secret. Sitting solidly in fourth place in the division thanks to those even-worse baseballers from the Bay Area, and firmly entrenched in a full-scale rebuild centered around being awful for the next few years, anyone on the roster with a hint of talent and a contract that expires anytime…


Shaping the Padres 2018 Starting Lineup

June 27, 2017

It is safe to say that the Padres’ 2017 season has gone exactly how ‘informed’ Padres fan have wanted it to go. The team is currently 18 1/2 games out of first place and is trending downwards (Side note: it is incredible how awful the Giants have been this year). Not only have the Padres been losing games, they have been losing them in the harshest of fashions. Just recently…


Great Expectations: Let Wil be Wil

June 25, 2017

In the midst of the Padres’ prospect paradise stands a 26-year-old “veteran,” under the stadium spotlight since age 22. Between all the conversations about volatility and inconsistency surrounding him, he has shown us exactly what to expect from him – an average of around .260, an OPS of around .800, and counting stats that in a healthy year should have no problem surpassing twenty homers, eighty runs, and eighty runs…


Attempting to Solve Wil Myers’ Slump

June 19, 2017

  Baseball is a game of inches. One inch here or one inch there can make or break a player. If a pitcher misses his location just barely, a strikeout could turn into a three-run home run. If a batter swings just a fraction of an inch in the wrong direction, he could miss the ball completely. Given how small-scale baseball can be, players are required to make constant micro-adjustments…


Padres Editorial: Wil Myers Struggling To Find His Stride

June 15, 2017

It’s no secret that Wil Myers has been struggling at the plate so far this season. The Padres’ highest-paid player, and the guy expected to be a leader in the clubhouse, hasn’t quite lived up to the hype this season. Through June 11, Myers has a .256 batting average. Now, batting average isn’t something people like to use anymore to evaluate hitters. People hold on-base percentage and slugging percentage to…


Wil Myers Gives Back To Community

December 1, 2016

The offseason has been hard on us baseball fans. Turning on the TV without seeing a fly ball, or even a strike, is unbearable, as we wait to see our San Diego Padres team back in action again. With that being said, it is nice to see some of our favorite players giving back to the community and one in particular is; first baseman Wil Myers. When he is not…
