Cameron Maybin Blasts Longest Home Run in Majors This Season (Video)

Cameron Maybin isn't known for his power, but that might be about to change. The Padres center fielder launched the longest home run in the majors this season at 485 feet on Monday night. It came off Trevor Cahill in the sixth inning, and it landed in Chase Field's left-center field picnic area. The blast, which is only Maybin's fourth of the season, is the longest ever...

Cameron Maybin blasts 485-foot bomb

Your browser does not support iframes. Last night in the Padres game at Chase Field against the Diamondbacks, San Diego center fielder Cameron Maybin stepped in against Arizona starter Trevor Cahill and did....that.

Deadline Trade Candidate: Huston Street

As the calendar flipped to July the countdown to the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline began in earnest. With the addition of another wild card in each league causing more clubs to feel they are still “in it,” fewer clubs are officially in sell mode. Of course our beloved and eminently frustrating Padres are in that exclusive group of clubs that have more or less decided to...

Padres' Cashner strains muscle, probably will go on DL

Right-hander Andrew Cashner threw a scare into the San Diego Padres on Tuesday night in Arizona. In his second start back from Double-A San Antonio, Cashner was warming up for the third inning when he threw a pitch far wide of the plate and signaled for the trainers. The Padres had immediate fears. Cashner, who was acquired from the Cubs last winter in a trade for first baseman...

Organizational Report: June 2012

(Sorry about missing the May report. Must've hit the snooze button that month.)San Diego’s farm system is faring very much like the big league club: occupying last or nearly last in their respective divisions, top to bottom. So, despite the teams not performing, fortunately there are some interesting individual performances that are noteworthy. Some expected, others not. DSL...

Chase Headley doubled in three runs and the San Diego Padres roughed up Arizona rookie Trevor Bauer in his home debut 9-5 on Tuesday night, winning their fourth straight and sending the Diamondbacks to their fourth loss in a row.

Daily Friar 7.2.12

Don't look now, but the Padres are winning series again. They haven't lost a series since the Texas Rangers series. That only makes sense seeing as they are the best team in baseball. But since then we went 2-1 on the Mariners, tied the Astros, and 2-1 against the Rockies. Up next is the Diamondbacks, who we lost a series against last time. The only problem is we are playing...
