SD 5, WSH 3: The Padres cannot stop hitting home runs

The combination of good pitching and homers is a delicious recipe for victory. So the San Diego Padres have now hit a home run in their last 20 games. The home run derby might have taken place in Petco Park with Wil Myers as the lone representative, but that hasn't stopped the rest of the team from participating in a derby of their own across the league. Setting the stage for the...

Padres Finding Identity in Wil Myers as Face of Franchise

The Padres had Mr. Padre, Tony Gwynn, for years as their face of the franchise. Since then they have tried to anoint successors with no luck. That search seems to have ended with Wil Myers. The Padres thought Phil Nevin might be that. Maybe Jake Peavy. Trevor Hoffman carried the torch for awhile as well, […] Padres Finding Identity in Wil Myers as Face of Franchise - Friars on...

WATCH: Wil Myers gets beaned by brother during HR Derby

Wil Myers may have been the victim of some sibling revenge during Monday’s Home Run Derby at Petco Park. The San Diego Padres first baseman was the hometown representative participating in the event and made it a family affair by asking his brother, Beau, to be his pitcher. Beau is a young player at Appalachian State, but he very clearly needs to work on his throwing accuracy...

San Diego Padres: Wil Myers, All-Star

Sportswriters are strange. Think about it.  As a sportswriter, you are asked to consistently and artistically describe the events of the athletic world.  The usual subject of their content?  The performances of adults playing the games of children. It’s an admittedly weird proposition for a career, which makes it even more appealing when said adults play said games with the...

Wil Myers Is Finally Living Up To The Hype

Not much has gone right for the San Diego Padres this year. They sit in the basement of the NL West 14 games behind the San Francisco Giants. They sit 13 games below .500 with a 27-40 record. Their hitters have the third worst wOBA and fourth highest K% in all of baseball, and their pitchers have the second highest BB%. They’ve already been shut out 10 times this year. There has...

Wil Myers Utilizing All Fields in Return to Prominence

There’s a bizarre trend in baseball this season that I’ve spent much of the year ignoring because it’s uncomfortable to believe. As unpredictable as baseball can be at a granular level, it’s equivalently reliable in a macro sense. There’s a game virtually every night; nine defensive players are on the field at any given time; base-runners run counterclockwise; and first...

Report: Padres would entertain offers for Wil Myers

Wil Myers has turned into one of the few success stories to come out of Padres GM A.J. Preller’s extravagant 2014-2015 offseason, but even he may reportedly be a victim of San Diego’s rebuilding plan. According to Jon Heyman of FanRag Sports, the Padres are “open” to trading their first baseman. Myers could probably fetch quite a bit on the market. He’s taken to first...
