Padres Rumors: San Diego Ready to Sell at Deadline

The San Diego Padres are 30-42 and 13 1/2 games out of the National League West division race. They are definitely a "sell candidate" at the trade deadline, but it seems that they could be willing to make a move sooner rather than later. They have many interesting trade candidates that contending teams will want to add, including the likes of Seth Smith, Chris Denorfia...

Maybin the hero in Padres win over Nationals

With open arms, the Padres welcomed Andrew Cashner back to the rotation Saturday night. They even celebrated with some timely hitting for a change. His elbow pain-free, the Padres’ ace ran his fastball up to 98 mph, threw that previously troublesome slider more and more as his night eased on and retired the final 16 hitters he faced in a much-anticipated return that somehow ended...

Braves use top pick on power bat, draft Davidson

It says a thing or two about outfielder Braxton Davidson and the kind of hitter the Braves just drafted out of Asheville, N.C., when their top overall pick revealed late Thursday night where he’d spent that afternoon trying to calm his nerves. “My dad and I were hitting on the ball field,” Davidson said. In a draft rich in pitching, and the projectable kind the Braves tend...

Maybin homers as Padres down White Sox

Two months into the season, Cameron Maybin walked into U.S. Cellular Field still looking for his first RBI. A heckuva lot longer had passed since the Padres’ center fielder had circled the bases. Both droughts ended Friday night with one swing of the bat. “I still feel that I have a long ways to go,” Maybin said after his third-inning homer got the Padres started on a 4-1...

Notes on a Loss in May

Thanks to johlac66, I got to see my second Padres game of 2014 on Saturday night. Mrs. Ducksnorts and I hung with him and Gaslamp Ball‘s jbox for the evening in a packed Petco Park.

Jack’s Hit of the Week: Definitely, Maybin

Cameron Maybin has been one of the most frustrating and intriguing players to watch over the last eight years. After flying through Detroit's system just under two years, he made his first appearance in 2007 with lackluster results. Following that 2007 season, he was the centerpiece, along with Andrew Miller, in the Miguel Cabrera deal between the Marlins and the Tigers. He...

Padres avert sweep with walk-off

Cameron Maybin, truth be told, has not been sold on this whole umpire-challenge and instant-replay thing. Not even close. "Now I am," said the Padres center fielder. "Today."

That’s So Maybin

One of the perks of getting burned by the same player year after year (in this case Cameron Maybin) is that I get to come up with a different pun for a title each season. This one wasn't my brainchild, though. It comes to us courtesy of Rudy Gamble. He's not just a stat guy. He's pretty hilarious, especially on Twitter. Maybin burns me every year because I get sucked...
