MLB Injury News:
Things have not gone well for Cameron Maybin since he signed his five-year, $25 million extension with the Padres prior to the 2012 season. He played in 147 games in 2012, but he hit just .243. This season, he has been plagued by injuries. He will end the season with just 14 games-played. Maybin will undergo season-ending wrist surgery.
#Padres Maybin will have surgery on his right wrist. Issue he's long dealt with. Outside chance he could still get winter ABs in December.

Maybin had an impressive first season with the Padres, and the club thought they had found the future face of the franchise. That's part of why the front office wanted to give him an early extension and buy him out of his arbitration year. Unfortunately, the move has not worked out. However, the extension was very team friendly.
In his seven Major League seasons, Maybin is a .248/.311/.370 hitter. He has shown at times that he can hit for power, he clearly has speed, and he can play Gold Glove defense. The question the Padres still have is whether Maybin will ever be able to put all those things together at once.

The Padres handed out another contract late in a season. However, unlike the Huston Street and Carlos Quentin deals, the 2013 version should draw little criticism.

First, Venable likely is...

Since then, it's been revealed that Alonso's dealing with more of an issue than originally thought, and it's now not clear when he'll be able to rejoin the Padres, according...
Gather around kids. Let me take you back to a time where DVD’s and Blu Ray discs didn’t exist. A time where you couldn’t just easily skip to a certain section of the movie. Yeah, sounds crazy right? Well that’s what it was like during the VHS era. I have a handful of Padres VHS tapes that I’m going to show you. I really need to convert these so I have them to enjoy forever...
When Andrew Cashner came to the Padres in a January 2012 trade that sent first baseman Anthony Rizzo to the Cubs, fans in San Diego were not amused. Rizzo, part of the haul for Adrián González, posted X-rated numbers in the hitters paradise known as Tucson and gave folks hope for a future brighter than anything Brad Hawpe or Jorge Cantú had to offer.
Rizzo struggled in his first...

But to make us happy, here’s five from the first two games that won the series.

While the San Francisco Giants' Pablo Sandoval showed his power, some wonder if the San Diego Padres' Eric Stults is running on empty.
''Is he getting tired?'' Padres Manager Bud Black said. ''I don't think so. His stuff still looks good. This time of the year one can go that direction, but he still feels physically good.''

Hunter Renfroe finished his amateur career with a bang. The 21-year-old outfielder was one of the top players in the college ranks, hitting a robust .345, with 16 home runs, at Mississippi State. The San Diego Padres were impressed. They took him with the 13th overall pick in the June draft. Renfroe’s tool kit includes […]
Last month, Avenging Jack Murphy wrote about removing distractions and concentrating on the game at hand. It was very well thought out and informative.
This is not going to be anything close to well thought out. As far as informative, that is a matter of opinion.
