PADRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Jelly beans happen to be my favorite, and for a jelly bean fanatic, there’s no better holiday. The Padres’ cup, on the other hand, runneth over with catchers, and luckily, at least so far,  none of them have been runneth...

The crafty left-hander worked his way through six strong innings, limiting the Giants to three hits, only one of which hurt – Michael Morse’s fifth-inning homer – in an otherwise spotless outing that propelled the Padres to a 3-1 win Saturday night in front of a sellout crowd of 43,405 Petco...

A House Divided: Chase Headley Addition

You’ll often here it said, if you follow San Diego sports for any length of time, that the attitude and environment in San Diego is relaxed. For some players, this is the draw to playing in San Diego (besides weather, beaches, beer, tacos, etc). The media isn’t as pushy as in New York or Boston and the fans are far more forgiving. This reputation is well-earned and often mocked...

Cashner one-hits Tigers in 6-0 Padres win

Andrew Cashner is "totally aware" the San Diego Padres have never had a no-hitter in their mostly sad-sack history, which has now reached 46 seasons and 7,176 games. After throwing his second one-hitter in a span of five starts, the big Texan is the leading candidate to end that drought. "That's one of my goals. I definitely want a no-hitter," Cashner said...

The San Diego Padres off to another slow start

As quickly as the San Diego Padres started off the 2014 season with an emphatic 3-1 victory of the division rival L.A. Dodgers, they have since plummeted. The Padres are currently 3-6 on the season, and have shown little hope of anything better than another mediocre year in the NL West. Zack Greinke (right) collides with Carlos Quentin of the Padres.
