Each month, MadFriars looks at the best performers across the Padres minor league system. In May, Tucson (Triple-A), San Antonio (Double-A) and Fort Wayne (Low-A) all posted winning records, though in most cases the total was greater than the sum of the parts.

The Bar: Cameron Maybin’s Return to a Crowded House

This is where we gather from time to time to talk about something big in the Padres world or just the Padres or just baseball. It’s a roundtable discussion. Except, you know, no round tables. This is a Public House . . . so we’re at the bar. As Cameron Maybin catches fire in Tucson, it appears reasonable to conclude that his wrist is healed and that he’ll be returning to...

Rabble Rabble Rabble

Remember when Clayton Richard had potential? I mean, not potential all-star potential, but solid middle of the rotation starter potential? I remember it like it was 3 years ago. It was 3 years ago. In 2010, Richard threw 200 innings for the first time. It was also the last time he struck out more 5 batters per 9 innings. That year Richard struck out nearly 7 per 9, gave up home runs...

The Los Angeles Dodgers defeated the San Diego Padres on Monday night at Dodger Stadium and rookie Yasiel Puig’s contributions to the win, especially in the field, cannot be understated.

Haiku-arrhea: Week 9 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 finished the week 4-3, splitting 4 games with the Mariners...

Carlos Quentin takes a header

The San Diego Padres and Toronto Blue Jays played a great game yesterday that went 11 innings before it finally finished with the Padres winning 4-3. The game could have ended a lot earlier then that if it weren’t for the heroics of left fielder Carlos Quentin. With runners on first and third with two outs, Melky Cabrera hit a shot to deep left. Quentin took a bad route to the...

Padres 4, Blue Jays 3

Robbie Erlin won his first major league start after being called up to help a depleted staff, Everth Cabrera had three hits and two RBIs, and the San Diego Padres beat the Toronto Blue Jays 4-3 for the second time Saturday.

The Pad-Jays: A Look at Those Who Have Worn Each Uniform

As the Toronto Blue Jays and San Diego Padres prepare to wrap-up their 3 game series tonight, I thought it would be fun to springboard off of Son of a Duck’s post on Friday morning and examine the players who have spent time in both a Padres and Blue Jays uniform.
