Josh Byrnes Era in San Diego ends with a whimper

The San Diego Padres have the third-worst record in baseball and — again — are at the bottom of the league in just about every offensive category. On Sunday, they became the first team this season to fire their general manager. Josh Byrnes was let go after nearly 2.5 years on the job. Byrnes took control of the Padres in October 2011, after then-GM Jed Hoyer left the organization...

Padre Profile: Andrew Cashner

When thinking of the simplicity of baseball, it’s hard to imagine something like Petco Park being natural and expected. Think about it: a perfectly combed grass field, etched into the shape of a diamond, with raked dirt and a calm air wafting over and through the blades – a true beauty of nature.

2012 in Review: January – When We Were Stupidly Kind of Optimistic About Stuff

2012 was pretty painful to live through as a Cubs fan, and even more so as a Cubs blogger who felt obligated to pay even more attention than is normally considered safe for human beings in an effort to bring you our non-classy, confidence-lacking, reundiscreditationalness that you all expect from us. So we're going to make you re-live the pain all over again. You're welcome...

Revisiting the Cubs offseason transactions

Since the Cubs changed management this past offseason I thought it might be fun to look back at the transactions and see how they've turned out so far. Keep in mind these are a final analysis. There's still much time left for some of these deals to look different than they currently do. I considered breaking this into parts, but decided to post it at once instead.  NOVEMBER...

Cubs prospect Anthony Rizzo headed to Chicago

Cubs prospect Anthony Rizzo is Chicago-bound and could get his first start as early as Tuesday. Manager Dale Sveum confirmed the news Monday night before the start of a three-game series against the New York Mets. The 22-year-old rookie, acquired in a winter trade with San Diego, was reportedly pulled out of Monday's game for Triple-A Iowa so he could travel to the Windy City...
