Positive sign given the Padres injury plagued outfield (Carlos Quentin and Cameron Maybin). Smith is only a.265 career hitter, so don't get too excited, but the fact that his batting average is 69 points higher against righties...

2014 Fantasy Baseball: Rotters and Sleepers — Right Field

Source: Denis Poroy/Getty Images North America It may seem silly to look at rotters and sleepers now that the season has started, but everyone can upgrade their bench at any time. What we have seen so far (with the exception of the center fielders) are players that teams use in platoon roles. The smaller market teams (like the Padres) are wising up to the fact that they can carry...

Going All Out in Spring

I had a coach in high school who use to hate the phrase “practice makes perfect.” He didn’t believe in it and didn’t want us to believe in it either. That’s because his philosophy was “perfect practice makes perfect.” And he was right. It doesn’t do you a lot of good if you hit 1000 golf balls on the range if every time you do it you’re swing is wrong. All you’ve...

In 1973′s Magnum Force, Clint Eastwood uttered this memorable line as inspector Harry Callahan: Man’s got to know his limitations. I don’t think Cameron Maybin is familiar with this quote.
