2012 Top 20 Prospects – San Diego Padres
It’s prospect season again. I’ve had my rankings listed on team pages, but have been horrible about keeping those up to date. As I mentioned on the pages, I’m looking at other rankings when I make mine (along with scouting reports and my own opinion). To the West Coast for the Padres.
For the top 20, I’ve listed them according to...
PADRES PRESS RELEASEPadres Place INF Logan Forsythe on 15-Day DL

The San Diego Padres today announced they have placed infielder Logan Forsythe on the 15-day disabled list with a left foot sesamoid fracture. In addition, the club has reassigned right-handed pitcher Brad Boxberger to minor league camp. Executive Vice...
Yonder Alonso, Chase Headley and Andy Parrino homered to lead the San Diego Padres to a 13-2 victory over a split-squad of Chicago White Sox on Wednesday.
Headley hit a two-run drive for his third homer of the spring. He also had a two-run double.
Parrino's two-run shot was his fourth homer, and Alonso's solo drive was his first of the spring.

When John Moores sold the San Diego Padres to Jeff Moorad back in 2009, in a deal that was scheduled to take up to 5 years, I said that "the layaway plan is good for Moorad, but bad for the fans. Teams need stability at the top and this will leave too many unanswered questions." Now with the news of Moorad stepping down it looks like the layaway plan wasn't so great...
The Padres couldn't continue their winning ways yesterday as they dropped the game against the Cubs 2-0. This looks like a familiar game from last season. Starting pitcher does awesome, but can't get any run support to help him get a win. Dustin Moseley fell victim to that quite a bit last year. Yesterday it was Tim Stauffer who was on the short end there. Also I want to...
Blake Tekotte was a 3rd round pick in 2008. After being named a Cal League All Star in 2010, he finished the year with a great .276/.367/.478 line with 18 HR and 28 SB. He followed it up with an even more impressive 2011 campaign, which saw him earn his 1st big league promotion in late May. Tekotte had 2 hits in his 1st 2 big league AB, and managed to make a name for himself among Padre fans.
The weekend is over, and with that so are the weekend spring training games. The Padres face the Cubs today over in Mesa. For those that made the pilgrimage out here, that means having to make the retreat back home too. However, no matter where you are today be sure to tune in to XTRA 1360 from 4-7 as Steve and Judson will be filling in for The Drive. You know how good the show is...
Have you ever had one of those dreams where you’re convinced it’s real? It takes you several minutes after waking to realize where you are and to understand that what just took place was merely a dream. It’s a strange feeling, unsettling. Why the heck should you care about my dreams? I’m not sure you should, but allow me some room to do something a little different with this...
