The past few seasons for the San Diego Padres have been less than spectacular. The Padres boast a 388-422 win/loss record with only one winning season from 2009-2013, but what they have done well through those years is identify and develop prospects.
2014 is no different, and is proving to hold a promising crop of young talent, some who have a chance to be called up and contribute...
From the morning’s SABR meeting, Mrs. Ducksnorts and I walked a few blocks to The Mission (coincidentally the name of a favorite San Diego restaurant). Our server recommended the street tacos, and they did not disappoint. Mrs. D’s pork shoulder tacos were smoky, 55+. My skirt steak tacos were an easy 70.
After a brief rest, I bid farewell to Mrs. D and piled with my fellow conference...

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...

That could have been the battery for UCLA in last night’s College World Series championship game. Sorry UCLA, I’m not sorry.
Synopsis: Enjoy this team now; if they are together for a full year then something is going wrong. The most balanced of all the Padres' farm clubs for offense and pitching with potential stars in catcher Austin Hedges, starting pitcher Matt Wisler and a few that could join them very quickly.
