Found July 17, 2013 on Padres Public:
You’re a busy person. You don’t have time to sit and wait for a slow loading flash video player to initialize, only to be followed by more agonizing seconds of intro graphics swooshing across the screen when watching Padres highlights online. And it goes without saying you want to watch them over and over again, staring at and memorized by the screen until you wake up with a little drool on your face 10 minutes later. That’s why you want your highlights in gif form. I recently realized I know how to make gifs, so I made this one for people like us. Padres Prospect and frequent sparkle in Bryant from Woe Doctor’s eye Austin Hedges shows off a luscious pop time and nabs a runner stealing second at the Futures Game. Enjoy. Big ups to Jodes for being in the Padres giffin’ craze at ground level.

Everth Cabrera: All-Star Game MVP (Not Really)

The 2013 MLB All-Star Game has come and gone. Everth Cabrera got a free trip to New York and front row dugout seats to the festivities and game. And that’s about it. Padres shut out of the All-Star Game for the second consecutive year. I hate the 1-per rule, but it still sucks to not see your guy. #PPLive — Vocal Minority (@VocalMinoritySD) July 17, 2013 Bruce Bochy didn’t...

State of the Padres Using Ramones Lyrics

Early last week, as I scrolled through twitter, I found confirmation  that Padres fans were, by and large, an unhappy lot. Losing will make anyone irritable (especially fans who have no real say in the matter), but the Padres 10 game losing streak and free-fall into last place were only the tip of the iceberg. Fans were sniping at one another and the 140 character debates seemed...

Padres Trade Rumors: Potential Suitors for Five Players at Trade Deadline

A couple of weeks ago the San Diego Padres were on a hot streak. Not too many games ago, San Diego was right around first place and now, at the All Star Break, they find themselves 8.5 games back and in last place. In other words, it’s time to sell. The chances of the Padres making a playoff run were slim going into the regular season, and they held their own longer than expected...

Padres Re-Creation Night

We are not in the breaking news business.  Except for today. The San Diego Society for American Baseball Research (SABR) Chapter (Ted Williams Chapter) will host a Padres Re-Creation Night on August 9th.  Several members of Padres Public are active members of the local SABR chapter. Specifics: The Ted Williams Chapter will present a Radio Broadcast Re-creation on Friday, August...

Haiku-arrhea: The All Star Break of Sadness Edition (Week 15)

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task. The Padres only managed 2 victories on the home stand, both in games...

Padres' Cameron Maybin runs for first time after knee injury

2013 has not been kind to Cameron Maybin. After missing most of the first two months of the season with a wrist impingement, he played just four games before suffering posterior cruciate ligament damage. Now it seems that the San Diego Padres outfielder might finally be approaching a return to the field, with MLB.com's Jamal Collier reporting that Maybin has finally started...

San Diego Padres Purchase Colt Hynes

The Philadelphia Phillies have purchased the contract of left-handed reliever Colt Hynes of Triple-A Tucson. Plowing through the competition with an insane 58/2 strikeouts to walk ratio along with a 1.52 earned run average in just over 47 innings pitched, he will get his work in middle relief for the big league club. In a corresponding move, the Padres optioned right-handed reliever...

Yankees inquired about Padres third basemen Chase Headley

Source: J. Meric/Getty Images North America The New York Yankees inquired about San Diego Padres third basemen Chase Headley. While the Yankees could be welcoming Alex Rodriguez back next week that has not stopped the team from seeking upgrades. Headley, 29, is making $8.575 million this season and will be eligible for arbitration for the final time this winter. The Yankees were...

Padres say Headley is virtually untouchable

The New York Yankees are still desperately looking for a bat to add to their weak lineup but are apparently barking up the wrong trees. Jon Heyman of CBS Sports says the Yankees contacted the San Diego Padres about Chase Headley and were told that he was as close to untouchable as one could be. The Yankees recently called for Padres star third baseman Chase Headley and were told...

Mike Dee: New Padres President and CEO

Well, that didn’t take long. The Padres announced this morning that Mike Dee has been named as the new President and CEO, replacing Tom Garfinkel, who resigned last week. Read the official press releases from both the Padres and the Miami Dolphins along with a story by Padres beat writer Corey Brock of MLB.com. Press Release from the Padres: Padres name Mike Dee President and...

Q&A: Eric Stults, Poor-Man’s Randy Jones

Eric Stults didn’t represent the San Diego Padres in last night’s All-Star Game. He arguably deserved the honor, which is remarkable given where he’s come from. The 33-year-old left-hander was claimed off waivers last May after being released by the White Sox. Three years ago he was pitching for the Hiroshima Toyo Carp. Stults had 8 career wins when he joined the Padres. Last...

Yankees called about Headley but they need to look elsewhere for bats

The Yankees recently called for Padres star third baseman Chase Headley and were told there wasn't a deal to be made, according to people familiar with the brief discussion. While the Padres are willing to listen on any of their players, Headley appears to be about as close as possible to an untouchable player without actually being one. People who have spoken to the Padres...

Star's Shares: 7/16/13

Straight Cashner Homie Photo Credit: Keith Allison   Most fantasy writers have no problem recommending players you should go after, but do they really pick up all the players they hype up? I’ll answer for them: no. Here on “Star’s Shares,” we’ll discuss players yours truly has personally invested in throughout the three leagues I’m in. If a player is good enough...
