Drew Pomeranz could be key trade chip

With James Shields already gone and the San Diego Padres continuing to fall farther back in the National League West standings, many are waiting for the next shoe to drop. And it’s quite possible that the next piece of the roster to go is starter Drew Pomeranz, who signed a one-year, $1.35 million deal with the Padres at the beginning of the season. The Tennessee native was drafted...

Quiz: Players who appeared for the Padres in 2014 and 2016

There has been quite a bit of turnover in on-field personnel for the Padres since the 2014 season; in turn, only eight players who appeared in games for that year's team were still around to do so this year. All eight are still with the organization, but only three are currently on the active 25-man roster as of this writing. One is back down in AAA after shuttling back and forth...

Who are your favorite current MLB players without Padres connections?

When I was much younger, I was a lot more of a general baseball fan. Being that my only chances to see or hear Padres games in West Virginia in the days before live streaming were listening to the radio broadcast when they played the fairly local Reds, or watching when they played the nationally televised Braves and Cubs, I took in whatever baseball I could, whenever I could. Enjoying...

McGwire fondly remembers winning 1992 Derby in San Diego

When Mark McGwire put on a dazzling display of power during the 1992 Home Run Derby at Jack Murphy Stadium, most of the baseball world had to wait a few hours to watch it. McGwire, now the Padres' bench coach, ran away with that 1992 contest -- the last time San Diego played host to All-Star festivities.

Padres Luis Perdomo Doing a Little Bit Better

The Padres continue to give Rule 5 pick Luis Perdomo a chance to make his mark on the 2016 Padres and stick around with the team for the future.

The sweep eludes the Padres yet again

A 3-0 loss on a Sunday. What is it with Sundays? Although the temperature didn't, the San Diego Padres' offense cooled off today. After scoring 23 runs in the past 3 games against the Reds, the Pads couldn't come with anything today. Luis Perdomo wasn't acing things out a la Drew Pomeranz, but he wasn't half bad either. A strong start from Anthony DeSciafani was all it took. Perdomo...

San Diego Padres: The case for White Queso

Baseball nicknames just aren’t what they used to be. As imaginative as abbreviations can be (insert sarcastic font here), referring to Alex Rodriguez as “A-Rod” or Derek Norris as “D-No” has become the standard for hardball monikers.  And while there remains a few exceptions to this disappointing rule (the aptly-named “Big Papi” absolutely fits into this demographic...

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...

San Diego Padres: Drew Pomeranz is an ace (almost)

The San Diego Padres have a reputation for rostering quality arms. Jake Peavy, he of the 16-strikeout gems, won a Cy Young in 2007.  Chris Young, the towering Princetonian, always seemed to be a couple of outs away from a no-hitter.  Tyson Ross has used a knock-out slider to become one of the most underrated arms in the league (albeit an arm that is currently still on the mend...
