10 Men Out…well, most of the time anyways

After back to back seasons in which the team went 76-86 in 2012 and 2013, there were very little changes made to the 2014 Opening Day offense. Weird, right? Now as we sit here on June 12th, the Padres are bad. Like really, really, really bad. Like you’d rather be violently ill than watch them swing a bat, bad.

You Didn’t See This Coming

There’s a perception in some circles that the Padres lack offensive talent. This is revisionist history based on the fact that they aren’t hitting. Hey, we’re all susceptible to hindsight bias. There’s no shame in that as long as we recognize it. Less philosophically, here are the Padres starting eight. For each, I’ve listed age, current OPS (a crude but effective proxy...

Seth Smith: The Final Piece Rises

Before this year, I had no idea how big Seth Smith was. I knew he was a perpetual 4th outfielder while playing for the A’s and Rockies, always getting plenty of playing time but never really making a name for himself. I knew he killed the Padres, but I always thought of him a Chris Denorfia type of player: right around 6 feet tall, right around 200 pounds, more slap-hitter than...

Royals can't catch a break in disheartening 12-inning loss to Padres

The Royals have to be wondering now what they have to do to win a game. The Royals dropped their fifth straight in the most painful fashion, 6-5 to the Padres on Monday night in 12 innings.
