Report: Marlins close to landing Fernando Rodney from Padres

Bullpen help may be on the way for the Miami Marlins in short order. According to ESPN’s Keith Law, the Marlins are close to landing Fernando Rodney in a trade with the San Diego Padres. This sure seems like a good move for Miami. Even a “good A-Ball prospect” is still a project and likely at least a few years from the majors. Rodney has been a stellar reliever for the Padres...

Padres have reversed their decision to name Hall of Fame Plaza after Bud Selig

The Padres are opening their Hall of Fame this Friday. The Hall of Fame should have been something to celebrate for Padres fans, but it was spoiled by a naming ceremony for Bud Selig two years ago. If you remember, and I’m sure you do, Padres leadership made an atrocious decision to name the Hall of Fame Plaza after then Commissioner Bud Selig. The reason for doing so seemed...

Padres Alex Dickerson Ready to Show What He Can Do

When the Padres put Jon Jay on the disabled list, they quickly recalled Alex Dickerson as he has been tearing up AAA. The Poway kid is ready to go. The Padres had other options, including top prospect Hunter Renfroe or Manuel Margot, but Dickerson provides them another left handed bat.

#TBT: Cards, Padres meet in Hawaii

It was still America's national pastime because it was still technically America. But when the St. Louis Cardinals and San Diego Padres traversed the Pacific to play three regular-season games in beautiful, sun-splashed, laid-back Hawaii on April 19-20, 1997, it was anything but a normal, land-locked Major League road trip.

While You Were (Day) Drinking – 2016 Game 79 (BAL vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy during an afternoon at the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you may have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (33-46) scored fewer runs than the Baltimore Orioles (47-30), 12-6, getting swept in a quick two-game series at Petco Park.

Orioles 12, Padres 6: Sloppy pitching wastes run support

I was pretty busy today and didn’t have a chance to check in on the game, so I guess I should probably see how the Padres did today. Oh. That’s, uh, not good. Christian Friedrich giving up six runs in five innings isn’t totally out of the ordinary. Two of those were unearned, but he committed the error that made them that way, so he really deserves those tacked onto his ERA...

San Diego Padres: Jon Jay’s bad break

As any athlete will tell you, injuries are simply a part of the game. The bumps, bruises, and fatigue of playing 162 games at the highest possible level can land even the most durable major leaguers on the disabled list.  This doesn’t mean injuries are easy to stomach, however, and, more than often than not, their timing simply couldn’t be worse. Case in point: Jon Jay, the...

Jon Jay’s Injury a Blow to Padres’ Trade Hopes

After being hit by a pitch and sitting out for a week with what was initially reported as a forearm contusion, tests revealed that San Diego Padres outfielder Jon Jay has a broken right forearm and will require a stint on the disabled list. Jay was plunked by Washington Nationals left-hander Gio Gonzalez with an 89 MPH fastball during a game on June 19. A post-game X-ray came back...

WATCH: Melvin Upton Jr. robs homer & cranks 465-foot homer in same game

Melvin Upton Jr. is experiencing a bit of a career revival with the San Diego Padres. The artist formerly known as B.J. Upton is putting together his second consecutive rock-solid season (1.5 WAR per FanGraphs) with San Diego, after two very disappointing seasons with the Atlanta Braves in 2013 and 2014. On Tuesday night against the Baltimore Orioles at Petco Park, Upton continued...

San Diego Padres: The case for White Queso

Baseball nicknames just aren’t what they used to be. As imaginative as abbreviations can be (insert sarcastic font here), referring to Alex Rodriguez as “A-Rod” or Derek Norris as “D-No” has become the standard for hardball monikers.  And while there remains a few exceptions to this disappointing rule (the aptly-named “Big Papi” absolutely fits into this demographic...

Wil Myers Utilizing All Fields in Return to Prominence

There’s a bizarre trend in baseball this season that I’ve spent much of the year ignoring because it’s uncomfortable to believe. As unpredictable as baseball can be at a granular level, it’s equivalently reliable in a macro sense. There’s a game virtually every night; nine defensive players are on the field at any given time; base-runners run counterclockwise; and first...

Report: Padres would entertain offers for Wil Myers

Wil Myers has turned into one of the few success stories to come out of Padres GM A.J. Preller’s extravagant 2014-2015 offseason, but even he may reportedly be a victim of San Diego’s rebuilding plan. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres are “open” to trading their first baseman. Myers could probably fetch quite a bit on the market. He’s taken to first...
