San Diego Padres
If only these Padres were playing the same way at the beginning of the season, then we could be looking at a potential playoff run. Unfortunately though, they dug a huge hole that they won't be able to get themselves out of. They did, however, return the favor to the Cubs from back in May. The Cubs swept us in Wrigley, and the Padres did just that in the latest series here at Petco. Interesting though that the Cubs only lost one game against the NL West this year at Wrigley, but on the road are winless against the same clubs. It was nice to get the sweep yesterday, but they are moving on to some better teams now and need to play better baseball in order to compete. Yes we won, but the team looked sloppy yesterday constantly running into outs.

#Padres C Nick Hundley on his way back. Eddy Rodriguez optioned out.
After struggling for months at the major league level (.166/.226/.259) the popular catcher was demoted to AAA. In 13 games for the T-Padres Nick Hundley is hitting .190/.252/.262. 11 total bases including one double and a triple in 42 PCL at...
After 30 job application rejection letters, and a seemingly heartless invitation to purchase a $500 job fair ticket, Taylor Grey Meyer decided to write a F*ck You letter to the Padres organization that has now gone viral. Meyer, 31, lists her extensive credentials that do seem to qualify her for a position in the letter,
Tim Stauffer makes another rehab start with the Storm, but the Storm’s offense struggles in a 5-1 loss. Jace Peterson, and Mike Gallic contribute greatly to a 7-3 win for Fort Wayne, and the entire Eugene offense had a productive night as they blow out the Bears 12-4.Hitting Prospect of the Day: Jace Peterson/Mike Gallic Pitching Prospect of the Day: Frank GarcesTucson Padres:...
The Padres welcomed in Jed Hoyer and his Chicago Cubs to Petco Park this weekend and thanked them like any host should; with a three game sweep capped with a shutout on top. The Padres beat the Cubs by 2-0, 7-4, and again 2-0, the latter a five-hit shutout by Clayton Richard. The sweep gave them five wins on this short six-game home stand and 10 wins in their last 12 played at Petco...
Padres off days are always long. I personally don't watch a lot of TV to begin with, but when I do it's usually because the Padres are playing. When I have it on I will mute it and do other things like read or something along those lines. Last night I didn't get to have that option with the off day. It feels like the Padres haven't been playing for a few days with...
The Pirates open a three-game series with San Diego on Friday night at PNC Park. Right-hander James McDonald will be on the hill for the Bucs. The Padres will counter with Edinson Volquez.
Last Monday, the Padres were officially sold ... we think. The sale to a group that headed by the heirs to the O'Malley family of Dodger fame, professional golfer Phil Mickelson and San Diego businessman/civic leader Ron Fowler is final pending the approval of the other major league owners, a vote that could come as early as next Thursday. But the new Padres' ownership...
Chase Headley homered from both sides of the plate for the first time in his career and drove in five runs to rally the San Diego Padres to a 9-8 victory over the Pittsburgh Pirates on Friday night.
Headley hit a three-run home run to cap a six-run fifth inning that tied the game 7-7. His two-run blast in the seventh put San Diego ahead 9-8 after Rod Barajas had hit an RBI single...
In Tucson Jedd Gyorko continues to produce and Nate Freiman is nothing but steady in San Antonio. Tommy Medica is opening some eyes for the Storm and Kyle Gaedele is starting to show some of the tools that got him drafted. In short-season ball some late round draft picks are opening some eyes.
That game was pretty fun to watch last night, but so has most Padres baseball as of late. What I really liked though was that we were hitting with runners in scoring position again, which is always a nice asset to have during any game. The team went 4-10 last night with RISP, which is a respectable number compared to their season average. The only nervous part to the game was in...
Robbie Erlin and 2 other pitchers combine to do what the San Diego Padres have never done... throw a no hitter.
Based on how they've performed at PNC Park coupled with San Diego's play on the road, the Pittsburgh Pirates should be able to end their lengthy home losing streak to the Padres.
Of course, if scheduled starter James McDonald's struggles continue, another defeat could be imminent.
McDonald again hopes to break out of his second-half funk and help the Pirates avoid losing...
First and foremost……. That felt good. What’s not good is the Padres. They kind of suck. In fact, on the road. Only one National League team has more road losses than the Padres. The Pirates need to sweep this series. Anything less is a loss in my opinion. First Pitch: 7:05 PM EST Where ti [...]
