First baseman Yonder Alonso and reliever Mark Rzepczynski came...

San Diego Padres: Alonso’s stalled season

Padres first baseman Yonder Alonso has long been somewhat of a punching bag for the fan Yonder Alonso base ever since he was acquired as part of the Mat Latos trade in 2011. Most of the scorn had to do with then-general manager giving up on top prospect Anthony Rizzo after only a handful of at-bats. Byrnes flipped Rizzo to the Chicago Cubs for right-hander Andrew Cashner, and it’s...

San Diego Padres: position battle: first base

Yonder Alonso What a disaster this position’s been the last few years for the San Diego Padres.

What Jim Murray Never Wrote about Yonder Alonso

Yonder Alonso may not look or hit like a big-league first baseman, but that’s what the cigar-shaped kid from Havana is. Most nights, despite possessing the power of a hotel hair dryer, the man who runs with a Steinway on his back can be found in the heart of Bud Black’s lineup. And oh, what a piano!
