Padres Points: Kemp, Johnson, Decker

As the Padres enter the second half of September, the team looks to end the season on the high note. They are 69-78 and would need eight more wins to surpass their 2014 record. Achieving less than 77 wins would make this season even more disappointing and continue to raise questions of the flaws within this current roster. One player who has finally come around is Matt Kemp. Kemp...

Cody Decker… Welcome to the Majors… Almost

Cody Decker will play in the major leagues this year.  It will likely be for the San Diego Padres in some capacity. I say that with my coffee mug overflowing with confidence and most of you know when it comes to these type of things in Padres land, I’m rarely, if ever wrong.  Here’s why… If Decker isn’t added to the 40-man, he will be able to leave as a free agent this...

The Padres' man for all seasons

EL PASO, TX - Cody Decker, 27, may be the best known minor league player in baseball that nobody really knows much about. With his 19,000 plus followers on Twitter and the auteur behind two very funny short-films, the first on former Padres' special assistant, and now Detroit Tigers' manager,  Brad Ausmus, and the more recent one this spring that went viral on an elaborate prank...

Cody Decker Presents: “Just Win, Brooksy”

El Paso Chihuahuas’ own utility man and five-tool film director Cody Decker is back with a new short-film called “Just Win, Brooksy.” Decker, a misguided and impassioned Oakland Raiders fan, decides to team up with fellow Chihuahua Hector Ambriz to get a rise out of infielder Brooks Conrad by decorating...

Minor league player calls own highlights on local news

During Sunday’s KTSM newscast in El Paso, El Paso Chihuahuas infielder Cody Decker anchored the sports segment of the show, and called his team’s highlights. This was pretty funny, complete with Decker giving himself and his teammates numerous high marks while also describing the action pretty well (if not a little too cute). But that sunglasses and suit combo is going to need...

Cody Decker Presents: “On Jeff Ears”

Most of us who have played some kind of sport are familiar with hazing new teammates. It’s typically a one-shot gig: telling them the new guy has to fill the water cooler, or saying that new players have to rake the infield, or even pretending that tomorrow’s game has been moved to some other day. It’s a harmless, albeit really fun, quick gag. But have you ever played a joke...
