Headley out for 'at least' a month

Bad news for the Padres and their fans, as their star third baseman will miss at least the first month of the season with a broken thumb. 

2013 season preview: San Diego Padres

The San Diego Padres looked like they'd be a dumpster fire over the course of the 2012 season in the first half of the year. They just didn't look like a good team at all. Then, something happened: the Padres improved tremendously in the second half, and finished with a respectable (if not overly great) 76-86 record thanks to finshing nine games over .500 in the second half...

You may say I'm a dreamer: San Diego Padres

What else can baseball fans do in January but dream of October? In You May Say I'm a Dreamer, the Outside Corner staff will imagine the route to a World Series in 2013 title for all 30 teams.

It's Déjà Vu for Moises Alou

It's been close to ten years since Steve Bartman reached out and fouled up (get it) Chicago Cubs outfielder Moises Alou's chances at making potentially a game saving grab. And Monday night, it was déjà vu all over again. Now serving as the general manager for the Domican Republic's team during the World Baseball Classic, Alou was on hand to watch current...

The Chicago Cubs have been active in their attempts to deal Matt Garza...

Headley Went From Awesome To Aw, Thumb

That title is very confusing if you have a lisper reading it to you. Why you're having someone else read it to you, let alone a lisper doesn't make any sense. You can't find a better-qualified Task Rabbit? Put down your soy capp-a-latte and find a better intern; you owe it to yourself. Last year, Justin Upton had a problem with his thumb. He hit 8 homers the first...
