WILL VENABLE RUMORS & GOSSIP

Home Plate Plays

As Scott accurately summarized, last night the Padres were blown out by Milwaukee 10-1.  The Padres had only one good look at that game, loading the bases in the second inning with two out and the score tied.  Sadly Will Venable reprised his first-half role instead of the Good August Venable, swinging and missing at 3 high fastballs to end the inning. Two batters earlier, the Padres...

Venable delivers walk-off hit in 12th over Braves

Instead, a contest dictated by pitching droned on past the four-hour mark. At last, in the bottom of the 12th, the Padres loaded the bases with three walks against Craig Kimbrel and Will Venable scorched...

I would like to think that I keep track of what's going on pretty well still. But I question that when looking at Will Venable's 2013 season and being surprised at the numbers...

GOTCHA!

OF fakes out everyone on home run

This is one of the most bizarre home runs I've ever seen. In the second inning of the Marlins-Padres game on Tuesday night, Padres outfielder Will Venable hits a fly ball to right field off of Marlins starter Alex Sanabia. Miami right fielder Marcell Ozuna settles down to make the catch in normal depth in right field as San Diego's announcers prepare to call the fly out....

Padres Avoid Arbitration With Will Venable

According to The Union Tribune (via twitter), the Padres have avoided arbitration with Will Venable agreeing to $2.675 million for 2013.
