Logan Forsythe offers the San Diego Padres many options. Yet, he's trying to leave them with only one choice.
He wants to start.
Forsythe gave the Padres two more reasons to make him a regular: he hit two triples in the same inning of an 11-8 victory over the Colorado Rockies on Saturday.
''He's ready to play every day,'' Black said. ''He wants to play every day.''
Forsythe led off third with a triple to right field off Ubaldo Jimenez and his three-base with two outs off Edward Parades drove in two runs. The Padres scored seven runs in the inning.
Jimenez gave up seven hits and five runs in two-plus innings.
San Diego manager Bud Black sees Forsythe as a starter.
He's been working at second base, third base, shortstop and left field this spring. He was at shortstop Saturday. Forsythe expects to be in the infield with occasional duty in left. But there's a competition at every position.
Chase Headley is the third bas...

The hot corner has been a very diverse mix for the Friars. From the incredibly good to whatever adjective you want to use for the opposite of good. We continue to look at the top 5 players in Padres history at each position. The first rule: we will only consider the players’ time with the Padres, so Mike Piazza doesn’t count because he was only here for 1 year. I have...
There is a law in the world of physics that goes something like this: For every reaction there is an equal and opposite reaction. My last post was titled, “Five Ridiculously Optimistic Projections for the Padres.” Well, if I follow the laws of physics I guess I need to post “Five Ridiculously Pessimistic Projections for the Padres. So, here we go.
Coming off a huge offensive...
One of the challenges when it comes to ranking players by position in fantasy baseball is trying to determine which player is going to have that breakout season and return a profit to your auction buy or draft pick. When reviewing the list of first basemen for the 2013 season, my pick to break out is Jedd Gyorko of the San Diego Padres.
It is cheating a little bit to call for a breakout...

Happy March Padres fans! We are exactly one month away from opening day! The team is chugging along in Arizona to get everything ready for when they take on the Mets in New York. Yesterday’s game resulted in another loss to a Royals team that has yet to lose this spring. Some things to take away from yesterday’s game though is Jason Marquis was outstanding. In two innings he...
Whenever the Padres face the Dodgers it’s always nice to win. No matter what time of the year it is. One team could be way out of contention and the other could be making a push, but one thing is constant: it is always nice to beat the Dodgers. Yesterday the two teams faced each other and the Padres won. Even though it is spring training it felt good to win. What made it even sweeter...
