The (sort of) Puzzling Seth Smith Extension

The year is 2026.

Padres, Smith Agree to 2-year/$13MM Extension

For a team that’s poised and ready to sell off its roster (being 10-games under .500 at the time of this writing and just two weeks away from the All-Star break), a 2-year extension worth $13 million doesn’t really seem like the type of thing the Padres would be prepared to offer. Nonetheless, the Padres have reportedly agreed to a 2-year extension with outfielder Seth Smith...

San Diego Padres: Why Seth Smith has been their best player so far

Despite being ranked 30th in all but one offensive statistical category (ranked 29th in slugging percentage), the San Diego Padres are only three games below .500 at 21-24, and that is surprising. While there are no standout or star players as far as the rest of the league is concerned, Seth Smith has been undoubtedly the best player for the Friars so far this season. Smith, who...

Seth Smith: The Final Piece Rises

Before this year, I had no idea how big Seth Smith was. I knew he was a perpetual 4th outfielder while playing for the A’s and Rockies, always getting plenty of playing time but never really making a name for himself. I knew he killed the Padres, but I always thought of him a Chris Denorfia type of player: right around 6 feet tall, right around 200 pounds, more slap-hitter than...

Streaking And Seth Smith Cycles Subsequently (Nearly)

The Padres are on their first 3-game winning streak of the season! Within this streak, the Padres have put up their highest and second-highest (as well as their seventh-highest) run totals of the season. During said streak, Seth Smith has missed a cycle by one hit on consecutive days (needing a home run on Friday, a single on Saturday). I figured these were interesting, albeit meaningless...
