Bud Black Trolls the NL

In the seventh inning last night, after surrendering a 2-0 lead, Bud Black sent Tommy Medica to the plate. The bases were empty, and Medica was hitting for Jace Peterson. Medica struck out. Medica is not a second baseman, so Black brought Alexi Amarista on to man the bag. With Nick Vincent having imploded, Dale Thayer entered the game at the same time to pitch. Seems like a classic...

Medica's misguided cycle attempt

If Tommy Medica's end run to become the first player in Padres history to hit for the cycle is successful, obviously, there is only one way to view it. As a Medica Marvel. Oh, a few other thoughts come to mind. Cheesy and cheap are two, and that's only from the "ch" department. Surely, you've seen or heard the details by now: Conducting his own personal desert...

Medica's homer a saving grace in 4-3 Padres win over D-Backs

A play at the plate last July cost Yasmani Grandal half a season. The Padres’ catcher is hoping a play behind the plate won’t eat much into this one. As uplifting as Tommy Medica’s go-ahead homer proved, the full-blown force of a Paul Goldschmidt swing through Grandal’s glove hand – as well as the weight of another potential absence – loomed large even as the Padres...

Will Medica Make the Team

No one really pays attention to Spring Training statistics.  First, you’re getting a lot of at-bats against pitchers who aren’t Major League ready, or veterans working on something specific.  Or, you’re facing hitters who aren’t Major League ready, or veterans working on something specific.  Either way, the  numbers put up in the spring rarely (if ever) translate into...

Put Me in, Coach: Tommy Medica

Leading into every baseball season, there are players who teams must count on to step up to the plate and take on a bigger role than they have had in the past. Maybe their team lost a key player due to injury, or maybe they had a player leave via free agency for more money elsewhere. What about the players though that are ready for a promotion, but find themselves blocked by another...

Texas League Player of the Year

Summary: For the second time in three years, San Antonio won the Texas League Championship despite losing their best hitter first baseman Tommy Medica before the finals. Hitting is never easy in San Antonio, but in addition to Medica the team boasted a talented outfield in Reymond Fuentes, Rico Noel and mid-season addition Yeison Ascencio. Approach: We use a simple formula for the...
