Volquez to start on opening day for Padres

The San Diego Padres rewarded Edinson Volquez on Sunday for his hard work this spring when they announced him as their opening day starter. The Padres were expected to pick Tim Stauffer to pitch the opener, but he is bothered by a sore right triceps, manager Bud Black said. San Diego begins the season at home Thursday against the Los Angeles Dodgers, who will counter with reigning...

Executive Vice President/General Manager Josh Byrnes made the announcement.   With today’s announcement, the Padres currently have 30 players in Major League camp.

Padres Show Some Faith In Luebke

One year after having to trade away impending free agent Adrian Gonzalez, the Padres have started to sign their top young players long-term. Cameron Maybin got a five-year contract earlier this month, and Cory Luebke landed a big payday of his own over the weekend. The left-hander agreed to a four-year deal worth at least $12 million on Friday, and two club options could put another...

Could New Ownership and Changes to Citi Field Lead to Alterations at Petco?

Interesting couple of weeks for baseball fans in San Diego. It now looks like the long and complicated purchase of the club by a group led by former player agent Jeff Moorad is dead in the water. Moorad recently stepped down as CEO of the team, replaced by club president Tom Garfinkel on an interim basis. Rumor has it that Moorad may have been pushed out due to his inability to gain...

Richard helps Padres top Royals 2-1

Clayton Richard pitched six shutout innings and the San Diego Padres beat the Kansas City Royals 2-1 on Tuesday night. Chase Headley and Jesus Guzman hit back-to-back homers off Kansas City left-hander Jonathan Sanchez with two out in the third inning. Richard allowed just three singles while striking out five and walking none. Brayan Pena homered for Kansas City in the seventh...

The San Diego Padres

The Padres are a team who had plenty to be excited about not too long ago. They had one of the best pitchers in the league as well as one of the premier first basemen in the game. Hell, the Padres were even playoff contenders in the NL West. How cruel this game can be in just a few short years. Now, there is still hope in San Diego with almost a completely different team this time...

Padres and Pints: Special Spring Training Episode

In this special Spring Training episode of Padres and Pints we are joined by Dan Hayes of the North County Times at the Fox and Hound in Peoria, Arizona. The interview takes place at the beginning of Spring Training (March 4th), the day after Dan broke the news of the Cameron Maybin contract. I would have liked to have gotten this up sooner but as you know I had some issues with...

MadFriars' Interview: Everett Williams

PEORIA, AZ: Everett Williams was taken in the 2nd round of the 2009 draft by the San Diego Padres. It was a draft class that had the potential of being something special with Williams, and fellow high school stars Donavan Tate and Keyvius Sampson. Williams was ranked the #8 prospect in the system in 2010, and that’s when it went downhill.

Daily Friar 4.1.12

Bud Black announced the pitching rotation this morning. And let me tell you there are some definite surprises there. I'm sure Corey Brock is already working on a story about it for Padres.com, but for our purposes I am going to tell you who they are and post the story tomorrow if it comes up. Tim Stauffer is resting a sore right tricep, so he has been pushed way back to the 5th...

Pena homers, Royals fall short to Padres

Chase Headley and Jesus Guzman hit back-to-back homers off Kansas City left-hander Jonathan Sanchez with two out in the third inning.

Daily Friar 4.3.12

The Padres have two days to make 5 more cuts to the team to make it down to the 25 man roster that is required for major league teams. Yesterday 4 more cuts were made, and at this point the cuts hurt even more. One of those cut yesterday was Matt Clark who had a monster spring, and if there wasn't a log jam at first base, would probably make this team. For more on the cuts check...

Daily Friar 4.2.12

Three days until opening day! Just three measley little days. It's so close that I can smell Randy Jones hot dogs already! Spring Training is officially over as of yesterday and all that is left is an exhibition game with the Royals tomorrow night. I hope that you all got your tickets to opening day and will be there to enjoy the festivities and a proper Dodger beatdown. Also...
