Padres Rumors: Edinson Volquez Trade Market Heating Up

The Padres, for once, are not in a position to sell, but that won't stop teams from poking around and seeing if any players are available. The Padres are right in the thick of things in the bunched up NL West. They are only 3.5 games out of first in their division, but are in third place, behind the Giants and Diamondbacks. Their pitcher Edinson Volquez is garnering a lot of...

Haiku-arrhea: Week 12 in Padres Baseball

In an effort to stay close to our roots, the staff at Padres Public, will offer-up a haiku each Monday to describe the previous week in Padres Baseball. Restricting our feelings to 3 lines and 17 syllables to describe a week of play is a massive undertaking, but (un) fortunately, we are more than up to the task. The Padres started off the week great in San Francisco and then dropped...

Baseball Prospectus Releases ‘Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects’ List

Jason parks of Baseball Prospectus released his Prospects Will Break Your Heart: Mid-Season Top 50 Prospects list today and in it we see movement from the following Padres properties: Austin Hedges: From #19 to #13 Max Fried: From #61 to #47 Yes? Yes! That could have been the battery for UCLA in last night’s College World Series championship game. Sorry UCLA, I’m not sorry.

The House Flight: Week of 6/17 to 6/23/2013

In case you weren’t paying attention… I'm not certain but I will estimate that Pedro Ciriaco has been bestowed with 35 names other than Pedro Ciriaco in the last week. #PPLive — Avenging Jack Murphy (@AvengingJM) June 21, 2013 Always enjoy responsibly. Don’t read and drive. A Point Of Contention Let's not get too crazy here. #PPLive RT @LauraMcKeeman: Time to have...

Let’s Take The Whole Day Off

Before we get to the meat of the post, a quick comment about last night.  San Diego tied yesterday’s game in one of the weirdest ways possible – on passed ball, which allowed the runner to score from third.  It immediately reminded me of this game three years ago, when the Padres tied the game – against the Phillies, no less – on a bases loaded BALK.  The Padres eventually...

Padres' Yonder Alonso recovering from hand injury

The San Diego Padres have missed the bat of first baseman Yonder Alonso in the middle of their batting order since the beginning of the month. It doesn't look like they'll have to be without him for much longer, as Alonso is close to resuming baseball-related activities, according to Jamal Collier of MLB.com. Alonso has been on the disabled list since June 1 with a right...

Rookie Jedd Gyorko could rejoin Padres this weekend

Rookie of the Year candidate Jedd Gyorko has been on the disabled list since earlier this month.  He was battling a strained groin. Fortunately, the San Diego Padres may not have to wait much longer to get him back.  Gyorko has made significant progress in his rehab and could return as early as this weekend says Jamal Collier of MLB.com. 2B Jedd Gyorko will play a couple of...

While You Were Drinking: Game 77 (SD vs. PHI)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. Last night my daughter and I met up with grandpa to catch a good pitcher’s duel and for the most part Eric Stults and Cliff Lee delivered. Unfortunately Lee was better, mowing down the Padres in quick innings of work. With a 3-0 lead...

Josh Byrnes on The World of Sports

Still unknown is whether Byrnes drank the iced coffee. Josh Byrnes was a guest this morning on XTRA Sports 1360‘s The World of Sports According to Chris and Ben. Earlier today, Gaslamp Ball posted their own recap, but I was already in the middle of writing this. So I don’t want to hear any crap about “you’re just stealing from them again!” You can listen and/or download...

Indoctrination 101: Poetry and Abstract Thought

There are certain areas of life where beliefs must be arrived upon using one’s own freewill. Padres baseball is not one of those areas. A few weeks ago, as a long school year approached it’s conclusion, small children put the finishing touches on a year of growth. I regularly see the amazing strides my daughter has made with reading and writing (she’s 6) so I couldn’t help...

While You Were Drinking: Game 76 (SD vs. LA)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after a night in the pub. Here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. After taking the first two of the series the Padres dropped the last two to the Dodgers. Andrew Cashner pitched a strong game and then Huston Street unraveled in the 9th. Street’s performance was so disconcerting that Left Coast Bias...

Padres rally against Lee, Papelbon

Kyle Blanks singled home the winning run in the 10th inning for his fourth hit of the game, and the San Diego Padres rallied from a three-run deficit in the ninth to beat the Philadelphia Phillies 4-3 Monday night. Blanks also had a two-run single and scored the tying run on a passed ball in the ninth as the Padres fought back against Cliff Lee and struggling closer Jonathan Papelbon...

About Last Night: I went to bed just before the implosion in San Diego

Cliff Lee was masterful last night in San Diego. Chase Utley hit a home run, Dom Brown flashed some leather in left field and the San Diego Padres looked to be no problem for the Phillies on the start of a ten game west coast swing. With the Phillies up 3-0 entering the bottom of the ninth and it already half past midnight I was growing so tired that I just could not manage to fight...
