If I ran the Padres – Part II

If I ran the Padres…. I would stop buying out arbitration years for my young players.  I admit my position on this issue has evolved in the past 3 seasons or so.  In the past i felt locking up players with guaranteed money was a great investment because the team can set its price rather than risk huge increases that are out of their control.  Sounds great in theory.  But, as...

Thoughts on the Jedd Gyorko Extension

Often as fans of a team, we end up (consciously or not) viewing the financial side of baseball from the owners’ perspective. We worry about how much our favorite team – the Padres of San Diego in this case – spends on its players, not because it’s our money on the line or because we’re worried about our team’s owners’ upcoming yacht payments, but because we want our...

The Spring of Pitcher Injuries

It’s been a depressing spring so far, at least with regards to pitcher injuries. Kris Medlen is going under the knife, and rotation mate Brandon Beachy will as well. Jarrod Parker will need elbow surgery also, and fellow staff member A.J. Griffin is being shut down with flexor tendinitis. Patrick Corbin will likely join Parker as an MRI revealed UCL damage. Jon Niese has been...

There has been a flurry of injuries to pitchers over the last week, and some of them have decided to or are close to getting the dreaded Tommy John Surgery that will keep them out for the entire 2014 season. This will have a significant impact on the playoff picture, especially given that Jarrod Parker, Kris Medlen, Brandon Beachy, Patrick Corbin and Cory Luebke all pitch for teams...

Wieland Experiences Elbow Soreness

The bad luck continues for San Diego Padres pitchers. On Saturday, Joe Wieland made his first spring start and 4th spring appearance with the Padres. The results weren’t great – he allowed 5 runs over less than 3 innings. However, the aftermath of the start was worse. Following his start, Wieland experienced elbow pain, and, according to Jeff Passan, there is “Significant concern...

Still Haven’t Locked Up Gyorko? Now THAT’S Insane!

Last May, I posted a piece regarding a Jonah Keri appearance on The Darren Smith Show where Keri talked about how he would, at that moment, call up Jedd Gyorko‘s agent and buy him out through the age of 31. That would buy out all of his arbitration years, plus one. At that time we were discussing the concept, Gyorko had 3 home runs and a .697 OPS. He went on to hit 20 more home...

Luebke Injury Underscores Byrnes’ Failed Strategy

Padres' Cory Luebke needs another Tommy John surgery

Some analysts view the San Diego Padres as a sleeper contender for the 2014 season. One of the reasons for that is a pitching staff that could feature five to six quality starters and a bullpen that goes four to five arms deep. However, that depth will now take a hit with the news that left-hander Cory Luebke needs another Tommy John surgery and will miss the entire season. ...
