When the Padres announced that they had decided to name some part of Petco Park after Bud Selig, fans were understandable confused and upset. Bud Selig never really seemed to make San Diego much of a priority during his tenure. It was strange to hear that he was instrumental in saving baseball in San Diego, which seems to have been a state secret so closely guarded that local media...

Padres Seth Smith: The (Very) Poor Man’s Paul Goldschmidt

The San Diego Padres acquired Seth Smith in a trade last winter.  It wasn’t a move that generated many headlines as Smith had just finished a season in which he hit .250 with just 8 home runs to go with well below average baserunning and poor defense.  Luke Gregerson, the player that the Padres shipped to Oakland for Smith, is a good reliever, a solid 8th inning guy who has filled...

Why do they do this to us?

It takes a lot… and I mean a whole lot to make me angry at the Padres.  I like to think of myself as the “positive guy” who looks at the Padres without skepticism, as if the glass is eternally half full. You have to hand it to “Selig Hall of Fame Plaza”, because it finally got me to dislike this front office. Are you listening, Mike Dee?  You made the positive guy negative...

8 Reasons Why the Padres Are the Nicest Organization in MLB

8. Giving Jason Lane a chance At 37 years old, Jason Lane has made a remarkable comeback to the major leagues – as a pitcher – and the Padres granted him this opportunity despite average stuff. He appeared in two mop-up situations out of the bullpen in early June and then was promptly designated for assignment. Lane cleared waivers, was recalled to make a spot start on July...

The San Diego Padres have had a largely miserable season. But things are looking up in the second half, as the Friars currently have one of baseball’s best winning percentages since the All-Star break.
