Padres Seth Smith: The (Very) Poor Man’s Paul Goldschmidt

The San Diego Padres acquired Seth Smith in a trade last winter.  It wasn’t a move that generated many headlines as Smith had just finished a season in which he hit .250 with just 8 home runs to go with well below average baserunning and poor defense.  Luke Gregerson, the player that the Padres shipped to Oakland for Smith, is a good reliever, a solid 8th inning guy who has filled...

Why do they do this to us?

It takes a lot… and I mean a whole lot to make me angry at the Padres.  I like to think of myself as the “positive guy” who looks at the Padres without skepticism, as if the glass is eternally half full. You have to hand it to “Selig Hall of Fame Plaza”, because it finally got me to dislike this front office. Are you listening, Mike Dee?  You made the positive guy negative...

The Padres Are Blowing It: The “Your Name Here” Hall of Fame Plaza

Almonte, Padres back streaking Ross

As hot hands go, Abraham Almonte is making quite a push to procure a good portion of the at-bats available in the increasingly crowded outfield in San Diego. Tyson Ross’ right hand, of course, is as hot as ever.

While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 129 (SD at AZ)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an afternoon at the pub watching the one tiny TV in the very back that the bartender begrudgingly graciously switched from the Local NFL Team’s practice preseason game to the Padres’ game.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (60-69) defeated the Arizona Diamondbacks ...
