PADRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

The Juice Bar: Padres And Purée

Crowdsourcing is the latest fad in seemingly every endeavor.  From Kickstarter to Storify, it seems gathering money or ideas from others and using it for your own benefit has become commonplace.

The San Diego Padres won 77 games this past season and finished 17 games behind the World Series champion San Francisco Giants.

Johnny Manziel Part of Baseball Card Set

Back in June, the San Diego Padres made headlines by taking Johnny Manziel in the 28th round of the annual MLB Draft. And while he’ll never hit the diamond for the Friars, the folks at Topps have decided to take advantage of the Padres drafting the former Heisman Trophy winner and include him in their upcoming Bowman Draft baseball card set. Silly? Maybe. But let’s be honest…this...

FMK: Pitchers And Catchers

It’s time to play f*ck, marry, kill with the Padres pitchers and catchers. Pardon my crassness, but I couldn’t think of a better name, and anyway, how can I be creative at a time like this? Yasmany Tomas has still not signed with a team, the Padres are still being linked to him as a strong contender, and in late-breaking Sunday night I-should-be-asleep-but-I-have-to-write-this...

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...

WATCH: David Eckstein reads mean blog posts about himself

Former Angels and Cardinals middle infielder David Eckstein was one of the most polarizing players in baseball during his career. Some trashed him for being a mediocre (if that) player, while others lauded his scrappiness and grit. 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...
