Logan White joins Padres front office. Preller swoon-o-meter at record levels.

Oh, A.J. Preller…is there anything you won’t do to make San Diego fall in love with you?

Mets360 MLB Project: Rebuilding in San Diego

The 2014 Padres actually finished with a respectable record of 77-85. Respectable because well, if you remember how awful their offense was in the first half of the season, you probably thought they wouldn’t even sniff 80 wins. The Padres once again were last in the National League in scoring, scoring just 3.3 runs per game. Before the all-star break, the Padres were only averaging...

Free Agent Outlook: Seth Smith

#456701854 / gettyimages.com Trying to find the next new trend seems to be the hot thing in baseball now and days.

Why Yasmani Grandal Should Keep His Catcher’s Mitt

Since we last discussed the San Diego Padres catcher situation, a lot has happened: Yasmani Grandal turned in an up-and-down campaign in 2014 after rushing a return from ACL surgery, showing signs of offensive brilliance while also failing to build on his sensational 2012 debut. On the defensive side of the ball, he had some trouble with blocking pitches and only threw out...

Padres Injury Update: Josh Johnson plays catch for first time since surgery

Eckstein took it all in stride over the years, and stars in this MLB Fan Cave video where he reads mean blog posts about himself. Any video that quotes...

End of season post-mortem: San Diego Padres

The Padres were viewed as a sleeper contender coming into the 2014 season. They probably weren’t capable of hanging with the Dodgers and Giants (or maybe even the Diamondbacks) in the NL West, but if either of the favorites faltered and the Padres’ roster stayed healthy throughout the season, there was a chance that meaningful baseball could be played in San Diego during September...
