Some news is popping up today now that is Monday. Hey I guess even MLB front offices take the weekends off during their offseason. There are a bunch of great articles today, including three from the ‚Äúwhere are they now‚ÄĚ category. Also I generally don‚Äôt like putting multiple articles from the same website up, but today I am making an exception to that rule as I have two from MLB Trade Rumors as well as two from this very site. The Padres have their name linked to another player this week, which means that by Wednesday they will have dropped out of the running. And also once again another team is going after a player that the Padres have looked at for some time. You snooze you lose? All that information can be found below, so let‚Äôs get to it:

Here we are with another quiet day on the Padres side of things. The biggest news in San Diego right now is that Mike McCoy is going to be the new head coach for the Chargers. This is coming a matter of weeks after the season ended for the Chargers. What have the Padres done in the matter of months after the season ended? Yeah that‚Äôs what I thought. My frustration isn‚Äôt coming...
This is the first in a 10-part series where I will identify the top three players at each position in the Padres‚Äô minor league system. Up first: Catchers.
The depth chart at catcher is certainly an area that presents an opportunity for improvement. The gap between the haves and the have nots for this position is fairly substantial. There are two to three guys who have the potential...
Adrian Gonzalez ‚Äď ‚ÄúI bleed Dodger blue‚ÄĚ
Even while in San Diego, it always seemed like Adrian Gonzalez would not be happy.¬† Small market, big park, no national love.¬† One of the greatest hitters in Padres history always seemed as though he was just playing his days out in San Diego.¬† Loved by the fan base and the Mexican community, a combination of his desire to pursue...

Now that it appears the Liriano deal may be on hold the Pirates are rumored to be interested in Shaun Marcum. What annoys me most is the logic behind these moves. ¬†Liriano was signed basically at the expense of Jeff Karstens. ¬†The reason Karstens wasn‚Äôt signed was because he was an injury risk. ¬†Well so [...]
In general, the arc of winter for a Pirate fan goes like this:¬†
Depression bought about by the end of the season.
Talking yourself into the coming season's team as the front office makes trades and signings.
Release of the ZiPS projections, followed by the crushing realization that upcoming Year Y will be no better than the prior Year X.¬†
Shaun Marcum`s market is heating up, and Rafael Soriano might finally have an interested suitor.
