Major League Baseball's 2014 All-Disappointment Team

While looking forward to the 2014 MLB postseason, the beginning of the playoffs also presents an opportunity to look back at the regular season that was. This one really seemed to whiz by quickly, as bigger storylines dominated the headlines and national narrative, rolling over the smaller developments that we often take time to examine and appreciate. That period of reflection...

The Good, the Bold, and the Ugly

There are two things you can do when you write a silly bold predictions piece, like the one I did just prior to the 2014 season: (1) try to forget about it and hope others do the same or (2) revisit it after the season and examine just how crazy you are. I’ve chosen option No. 2. The Padres will win 77 games and finish tied for third-place in the NL West (with the Diamondbacks...

End of season post-mortem: San Diego Padres

The Padres were viewed as a sleeper contender coming into the 2014 season. They probably weren’t capable of hanging with the Dodgers and Giants (or maybe even the Diamondbacks) in the NL West, but if either of the favorites faltered and the Padres’ roster stayed healthy throughout the season, there was a chance that meaningful baseball could be played in San Diego during September...

Padres 6, Dodgers 3: Fauxto’d

Well, I guess this is what I get for getting so many Clayton Kershaw recaps. Roberto Hernandez did his best Fausto Carmona impression at Dodger Stadium on Tuesday night, as the Padres took down the Dodgers 6-3. Carmona Hernandez didn’t get any help from his defense. After allowing two runners to reach with two outs in the second inning, Andrew Cashner (the pitcher) hit a line-drive...

Jedd Gyorko is now the Padres all-time HR leader at 2B ... with 31

Every once in a while, I come across a stat that truly blows by mind. This is one of those stats: Jedd Gyorko, who made his MLB debut last season and has 31 homers in 199 career games, is now the Padres franchise leader in home runs by a second baseman. The Padres have been around since 1969. You know that, right? I didn't believe this when I read it at first -- maybe an intern...

Gyorko brings thunder in Padres rain-soaked win over Cardinals

As the rain began to fall Saturday night, Jedd Gyorko found himself in a familiar position as he walked to the plate in the seventh inning at Busch Stadium: The bases were loaded and he was all alone in the batter’s box for the seventh time in a little over a week. Déjà vu? Not exactly. This time, Gyorko chased reliever Kevin Siegrist’s 94 mph fastball over the wall in left...

View From The Left Coast

It’s no surprise to anyone reading this that the Padres offense is historically bad. And while I continue to await a regression to the mean, the further into the season we go the more I’m concerned that this simply is the mean. These offensive woes are not being noticed only in our neck of the woods it turns out. Yesterday, Benjamin Hoffman of the New York Times contacted me...
