To and Fro: July 2nd, 2015

I’ve got a lot of topics to cover and, like I’ve done a few times in the past, decided to scrunch them all into one post. It’s To and Fro time! -Man, is it me or has the Chicken and Garry Templeton been EVERYWHERE lately.

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, Jul 1

On a day devoid of truly elite options — Johnny Cueto is pitching, but there’s concerns over his elbow health — it’s James Shields at home against the Mariners that receives top billing. Despite getting roughed up last time out, I support Shields and his elevated K rate this season. Matthew Wisler hasn’t walked anyone in his 12 MLB IP this season, but he’s also fanned...

Shields takes the mound in series finale at Giants

De La Rosa outpitches Shields as D-backs beat Padres

PHOENIX -- Rubby De La Rosa had two things going for him Friday night -- a better handle on his two-seam fastball and a good rapport with catcher Welington Castillo.

San Diego Padres Trade Rumors: Buyers or Sellers Edition

Justin Upton, Wil Myers, Matt Kemp, Derek Norris, Craig Kimbrel, and James Shields. They all have something in common: rookie-G.M. A.J. Preller brought them all to San Diego in an effort to bring the city its first NL West title since 2006. These six 2015 additions have led the Padres to a mediocre start through their first 65 games.
