We shouldn’t be GMs: reactions to the Kennedy-Street trade rumors

Baseball fans are an arrogant bunch. They are also an ignorant bunch. It is this unique combination that allows so very many of us to sit and watch a game all the while thinking, “I could totally be the GM of this team.” The thing is, we shouldn’t. We really, really shouldn’t. Sure, I’ve tried to conjure up a trade or two (dozen) in my day and some of them have been not...

Ian Kennedy's value

Ian Kennedy's value may never be higher. The right-hander continued his recent tear Saturday, tossing his longest and first scoreless start of the year.

San Diego Padres: Grading the first third of the season

Well, 62 games are in the books, and the San Diego Padres are exactly who we assumed they would be; a sub-par baseball team with a pretty good pitching staff, but an anemic offense. Despite being ranked last in every offensive stat category, except slugging percentage which is ranked 29th…, the Padres have managed to find ways to win ball games, and currently sit with a 28-34 record...
