Jedd Gyorko, 2015 Fantasy Sleeper

If you are gluten free, you might want to be careful of this post, because to draft Jedd Gyorko again in 2015, after what he did last year, you need to be a gluten for punishment. I am spelling that right, right? (Stutterer!) On a side note, I want to open a gluten-free bakery that isn't really gluten-free called Gluten for Punishment because I have a theory that there's no such...

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.

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...

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...
