BUD BLACK NEWS

The Day After Nothing Happened… Or Did It?

We are all Padres fans here.  Let’s just get that out of the way.  I know some of you don’t want the truth, you can’t handle the truth.  Most of you know me for my strong opinions (follow me on twitter @Steve_Adler), agree or not.  With that said, I just want to be clear about my stance on the way that things have been handled since the embarrassing pissing contest that...

Padres and Marlins start 3-game series Friday night

Could Weiss be the next NL manager to go?

After winning two of three games against St. Louis last week, Rockies fans had a glimmer of hope. That was quickly shut down when the Rockies went 1-5 on the road to follow. They are once again last in the NL West, carrying a 28-36 record. With the All-Star break around the corner it’s time to ponder, what is making this team so bad? It’s not the position players. They have...

Evaluating the Angels outfielder trade targets isn’t an easy task. The Angels have a poor farm system to trade from and some financial restrictions that limit what they can even offer.

Ramblings: This Was a Long Week

So, some stuff went down recently. Quite a bit of stuff, actually. Stuff that made some people angry, and others very happy. Let’s get into it. I would love to unleash a Bud Black take so hot that not even the White Walkers would be able to put out, but Dustin over at The Sac Bunt, as usual, wrote a terrific post on Buddy that I mostly agree with. There’s not much more that...

Did lack of player development lead Padres to fire Bud Black?

Often when a team fires its manager, its rationale becomes clearer after the fact. I maintain that the Padres’ dismissal of Bud Black was inevitable because both ownership and general manager A.J. Preller inherited him, then made a series of upgrades that raised expectations to an almost unreasonable level. Still, the idea that the team needs a fresh voice after nearly 8½ seasons...
