San Diego Padres in Neutral — A Dangerous Thing for Fan Base

In the history of the San Diego Padres, the team has struggled to find an identity. There have been tons of ups and down in the franchises relationship with its fans. Last offseason, with the addition of A.J. Preller, the mostly dormant fan base had been revitalized. When you add James Shields, Craig Kimbrel, Matt […]

The Padres underwhelming offseason isn’t a bad thing

The San Diego Padres entered last offseason in full win-now mode. New general manager A.J. Preller made big move after big move in order to fix the slumping Padres, acquiring outfielders Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, and Wil Myers, pitcher James Shields, catcher Derek Norris, and closer Craig Kimbrel, among other players.

Re-signing Alex Gordon signals change in Royals’ philosophy

Re-signing Alex Gordon was an important move for the Kansas City Royals and their chances in 2016. But it may have been more important for the impression it left on Royals fans and the baseball world in general: the days of small market Kansas City being pushed around by big budget teams may be over. For weeks, the only reports about Gordon and the Royals seemed to be about how little...

Necessary Moves: James Shields, San Diego Padres

Over the next 30 days, I’ll look at 30 players—one from each team—that I believe should be traded, but more along the lines of a “what if” scenario. Some will seem obvious, just as others will seem nonsensical. Some may also seem desperate, but it’s important to understand that this list is entirely subjective and made up solely of notable names. A player can be deemed...

The Legacy of the Shields Trade

Do you remember when 90% of Kansas City hated the “James Shields” – now known as the “Wade Davis,” trade? Do you also remember when the Kansas City Royals won back-to-back American League Championships AND won the World Series? Three years ago yesterday, David Glass and Dayton Moore went all in. It was the day that we put our big boy pants on, rather than continuing...

Entertaining a James Shields for Pablo Sandoval Deal

The Red Sox are back, baby! With David Price in the fold and inactivity across the AL East, the Sox are becoming unquestionable favorites in the eastern division.

The Year James Shields Was Different

Three winters ago, we got into a lot of arguments about James Shields. He was at the center of a very polarizing trade and people took sides. You remember it, so I won’t rehash things other than to remark on how funny it is that the James Shields-Wil Myers blockbuster has actually become the Wade Davis trade. Wade Davis! The guy who gave up 5.92 runs per nine in the season following...

Did the San Diego Padres Have a Successful Season?

The San Diego Padres entered 2015 with plenty of buzz and hype. They signed James Shields, traded for Craig Kimbrel, Justin Upton, Wil Myers, Matt Kemp, Derek Norris, and Will Middlebrooks—and more. But the Padres finished in the bottom half of offenses despite a remade lineup and the top half of runs allowed—the wrong direction—despite playing in spacious Petco Park. Offense...

Busy offseason lies ahead for Dodgers

The Royals are World Series champions. As weird as that sounds, it is, in fact, reality. Their gambles paid off in the best possible way. They didn’t re-sign James Shields, signed Kendrys Morales and traded for Johnny Cueto and Ben Zobrist in July. Oh, and they were without their closer Greg Holland, who went down with a torn UCL in the season’s final month. Now, the Dodgers...

If you want to pick Royals...

One huge difference between this season’s Royals and last season’s Royals? This year’s Royals don’t have two of last season’s best pitchers: starter James Shields, who left via free agency, and closer Greg Holland, who’s out for a long while with a serious elbow injury. But they didn’t miss Shields during the regular season, and last October he went 1-2 and gave up...
