Found July 15, 2013 on FF Locker Room:
The Philadelphia Phillies have purchased the contract of left-handed reliever Colt Hynes of Triple-A Tucson. Plowing through the competition with an insane 58/2 strikeouts to walk ratio along with a 1.52 earned run average in just over 47 innings pitched, he will get his work in middle relief for the big league club. In a corresponding move, the Padres optioned right-handed reliever Brad Brach to Tucson to make room for Hynes at the major league level. The post San Diego Padres Purchase Colt Hynes appeared first on FFLockerRoom.

San Diego Padres: Mid-Season Report Card

Team: San Diego Padres Record: 42-54 (8.5 GB) Biggest Surprise of First Half: The whole month of June was a surprise for San Diego Padres fans. For the first time in over 2 years the team was above .500. Jedd Gyorko brought life to the team when he started his rookie year at the start of April. With 25 RBI’s and a .272 batting average, Gyorko brought some much needed offense to...

Austin Hedges, Hashtag Swoon

You’re a busy person. You don’t have time to sit and wait for a slow loading flash video player to initialize, only to be followed by more agonizing seconds of intro graphics swooshing across the screen when watching Padres highlights online. And it goes without saying you want to watch them over and over again, staring at and memorized by the screen until you wake up with a...

Padres Rumors: San Diego ready to sell

The San Diego Padres, who were recently considered contenders, have fallen off track and have lost 14 of their last 17 games. The slump now has changed their trade deadline plans considerably, according to a report. The Padres, once considered buyers, are now open for business as they will be sellers at the deadline, according to Danny Knobler of CBS. If they decide to sell...

State of the Padres Using Ramones Lyrics

Early last week, as I scrolled through twitter, I found confirmation  that Padres fans were, by and large, an unhappy lot. Losing will make anyone irritable (especially fans who have no real say in the matter), but the Padres 10 game losing streak and free-fall into last place were only the tip of the iceberg. Fans were sniping at one another and the 140 character debates seemed...

Padres Trade Rumors: Potential Suitors for Five Players at Trade Deadline

A couple of weeks ago the San Diego Padres were on a hot streak. Not too many games ago, San Diego was right around first place and now, at the All Star Break, they find themselves 8.5 games back and in last place. In other words, it’s time to sell. The chances of the Padres making a playoff run were slim going into the regular season, and they held their own longer than expected...

Haiku-arrhea: The All Star Break of Sadness Edition (Week 15)

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 only managed 2 victories on the home stand, both in games...

Padres' Cameron Maybin runs for first time after knee injury

2013 has not been kind to Cameron Maybin. After missing most of the first two months of the season with a wrist impingement, he played just four games before suffering posterior cruciate ligament damage. Now it seems that the San Diego Padres outfielder might finally be approaching a return to the field, with's Jamal Collier reporting that Maybin has finally started...

While You Were Drinking: Game 95 (SD vs SF)

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. San Diego Padres. San Francisco Giants. Tim Lincecum. No-hitter. 9-0. Did I miss anything else? F**k it. I’m going to keep drinking. The Padres play their last game before the All-Star break today at 1:10pm PDT. Eric Stults starts against...

Padres 10, Giants 1

Carlos Quentin hit one of San Diego's four home runs and drove in three runs as the Padres routed Barry Zito and the San Francisco Giants 10-1 on Sunday, a day after being no-hit by Tim Lincecum. Nick Hundley had a homer among his three hits and Chris Denorfia and Will Venable also went deep as the Padres avoided a four-game sweep by the defending World Series champions heading...

Zito, Bullpen Undone by Padres, Drop Finale 10-1

Three straight wins including a no-hitter isn’t too shabby for the defending World Champions, however a four game sweep of the Padres was not to be. Sunday afternoon was less than favorable for starter Barry Zito as he allowed four runs in two plus innings as well as three home runs. The Padres got some measure of revenge for Lincecum’s no hitter on Saturday, tattooing Giants...

Breaking Bad

Two weeks ago I wrote a piece about possible targets for the Padres at the trade deadline. The Padres were looking to buy, and I was looking for ways they could spend. At the time, the Padres were 40-42. They’d lost two in a row and things hadn’t been great for a week or so, but hey, no big deal. At the end of the post, I decided to throw in a small caveat: “Of course, all...

Straight Cashner Homie Photo Credit: Keith Allison   Most fantasy writers have no problem recommending players you should go after, but do they really pick up all the players they hype up? I’ll answer for them: no. Here on “Star’s Shares,” we’ll discuss players yours truly has personally invested in throughout the three leagues I’m in. If a player is good enough...
