It's that time of year again, rumor season
The trade deadline is still over a month and a half away, but that doesn't necessarily mean teams aren't looking around the league in search for potential help. The injury-riddled, flu-striken Redlegs (35-27) are no exception as they, like other contending squads, continue to attempt to perfect their roster. And the most intriguing name they're reportedly interested in is Padres outfielder Carlos Quentin.
Despite sitting atop the NL Central standings, Cincinnati could desperately use another right-handed stick in the batting order -- specifically one that also plays left field. The Reds haven't gotten the production they hoped for out of the duo of Ryan Ludwick and Chris Heisey this season and the lingering injury to Drew Stubbs isn't helping the cause either.
Entering play on Thursday, Cincy ranked last in the National League in left field production in runs scored (20), was 13th in average (.224),...

The Padres were riding high coming into this series after sweeping the Mariners. Oh how quickly that was shot down last night. All in all it was pretty embarrassing to witness. The pitching was off, and the offense wasn't there either. The team hit 5-31 last night, and two of those hits came from Carlos Quentin. The 5-9 hitters went 1-16 collectively. That is not how the Padres...
If the Yankees look for an outfielder on the trade market to replace Brett Gardner it doesn’t sound like it will be Carlos Quentin.
According to Jon Heyman of CBS Sports, the Yankees don’t think Quentin is a good fit and will look for someone faster, more like Gardner, to replace Gardner.
Quentin, 29, is a free agent at the end of this year and is currently hitting .421/...

The Oakland A's and the San Diego Padres are the identical Lane cousins of baseball. They may play in separate leagues, but they look awfully similar. Both teams feature rosters in transition and have instability with their ownership situations. Both have struggled on offense this season and are well under .500. And both are coming off of three-game sweeps. Chris Biderman previews...
The long and winding road that is the sale of the San Diego Padres appears to be close to ending. According to sources, the sale could be completed as early as next week. The bigger question is, who will wind up being the owner?
There have been some rumblings that hedge-fund magnate Steven Cohen could be that guy. Cohen is currently a minority owner in the New York Mets and reportedly...
Andrew Cashner looked good in San Antonio but a really tough night for big Matt Lollis. Tucson loses another one late and Roach keeps rollin' in Lake Elsinore.
So I have some good news and some bad news. The good news is that the Padres won the game last night. And in doing so have also won the series, and are going for the sweep today. The pitching was spot on (though not as spot on as Matt Cain was last night) and got the job done. The bad news is that our RISP hitting is still having issues. Case in point was the 9th inning we had bases...
There is a word that I haven't been able to use yet all season, and that is SWEEP! As of last night the Padres have swept their first series of the season. It came against our natural rival the Seattle Mariners, and we are now one step closer to claiming the Vedder cup as ours for this season. It's so nice to see the team winning and having fun doing it. Putting up crooked...
