With less than 10 days remaining before the July 31st non-waiver trade deadline passes few deals of any real significance have been made. There are a few factors contributing to the relative absence of activity so far. The newly created Wild Card in each league was intended to keep more clubs in contention longer, which has been the case, but because teams winning a Wild Card are only guaranteed a single play-in game few clubs want to sacrifice futures in deals for veterans to boost their odds of making the playoffs if that won’t even ensure them at least one home postseason contest. In addition the new CBA no longer provides for draft pick compensation for losing a free agent unless the player was on the club’s roster for the entire season. Teams adding a pending free agent mid-season are not allowed to collect draft pick compensation should they offer the player arbitration and lose him to another club. This means fewer teams are willing to pay a premium in prospect value for a “...

Jon Heyman of cbssports.com is reporting that the Padres are close to a 3-year extension with Carlos Quentin. The deal would be for 27M and with bonuses could reach 30M total. This season Quentin has hit .279/.389/.525 in 40 games, but in 18 games at Petco National Park, Quentin is hitting .230/.309/.410. Not a huge surprise that a Quentin, a fly ball hitter struggles at Petco...

The Padres aren’t going anywhere this season but that doesn’t automatically qualify the 41-56 club as deadline sellers. While Carlos Quentin, Chase Headley and Huston Street have attracted plenty of attention on the trade market, general manager Josh Byrnes has approached the deadline in a rather conservative manner. With a new ownership group set to take over, it remained unclear...
The Padres won a pitcher’s duel on Sunday to take the series after splitting two high scoring contests on Friday and Saturday. The series win placed the Friars at 7-3 since the all-start break and 41-56 overall. Before the game the Padres extended cleanup hitter Carlos Quentin through 2015, uncharacteristically locking up a valuable trade commodity before the deadline. The move...

San Diego Padres and outfielder Carlos Quentin reportedly are close to agreeing Sunday to a three-year contract extension. The deal is worth $27 million, according to CBSSports.com.

In 2008, Carlos Quentin had an MVP caliber season for the AL Central Division Champion White Sox. Actually, he probably would’ve won the thing if he played the last month of the season; Quentin hit .288/.394/.571 with 36 home runs and 100 RBI in just 130 games before a temper-induced wrist injury ended his year prematurely.
This year – four years later, for those of you keeping...

three-year, $27 million extension with right fielder Carlos
Quentin, according to major-league sources.
As the game went on last night one couldn't help but be reminded of the 22 inning affair that took place a couple years ago. The Padres and Rockies were battling it out all night in what was a pretty good game all around. The only bad thing about it was Kip Wells and his 4th inning, and the fact that it took us 12 innings to just lose the game. As a Padres fan it was disheartening...
The Giants tagged Clayton Richard for four runs in the first inning of tonight’s game and it was cruise control the rest of the way, as Ryan Vogelsong held the Padres to one run over seven innings, and Buster Posey added a three-run blast in the fifth inning for good measure. Pretty much everything went right — or at least, everything that needed to go right. The Giants’ 2...
