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...

Another Padres ballgirl made a great catch

During Tuesday’s Dodgers-Padres game, San Diego’s ballgirl down the right field line made a nice catch on this sinking liner hit by Chris Denorfia. While that’s all well and good, what makes this catch even more remarkable is that it’s the second time in two games that a ballgirl down the right field line at Petco Park has made a great catch.

Smith, Grandal Propel Padres in Game One

Game stories are difficult to write, at least for this author. Instead, here are some assorted thoughts on Sunday night’s season opening 3-1 victory against the Dodgers. Hyun-Jin Ryu was almost done in the first inning (then he dominated) Ryu walked Everth Cabrera to lead things off then gave up a line-drive single to right by Chris Denorfia, which put runners on second and third...

Ballplayer for a Day: Padres Swing for your Seats

As a Padres fan, there’s nothing I love more than when our team takes the field and comes off victorious. Hell, I even just love them taking the field. Call me a romantic, but there’s something infinitely soothing and exciting when it comes to the beautiful simplicity that is a baseball game. I’ve been playing the game for most of my life, and you can bet I have taken each...

Padres Commercials? Padres Commercials!

A little over a year ago I wrote that The Padres Are Blowing it. That statement feels vague. I was speaking specifically about marketing the team to the casual fans of San Diego: Fortunately, I have a solution! The Padres need to take a portion of the windfall they received from Fox and start advertising the f*ck out of this team. I’m talking about commercials, people. The funny...

Chris Denorfia and the Volatile Padres

With a combination of high end talent and what should be a weak division, the 2014 San Diego Padres could find themselves in the hunt come September. In a far more realistic universe, the very same Padres team is one with myriad injury risk and a volatile roster that could very well find themselves headed for their fourth straight losing season. Not so coincidentally, the epitome...

Padres 2014 FanFest: Once More Unto the Breach, Dear Friends, Once More

The 2014 Padres FanFest has come and gone. We can now consider the season underway. I love FanFest. Always have.

Join me, will you, for a rather long look at my day on Saturday. The Line I arrived at 8am and...
