Padres chairman: It was time to make changes

PEORIA, Ariz. (AP) -- As the full squad of his remodeled club stretched in front of him for the first time, Padres chairman Ron Fowler was asked about the flurry of offseason moves that have brought excitement and a record payroll to San Diego. "I'm on food stamps, so I had to hitchhike over," Fowler said Wednesday, smiling. "No, we're all in. We spent our money wisely. Or I should...

Happily Stuck (In the Middle)

Middle Infielders are valuable commodities, but there is no need to reach for a second baseman if fantasy owners want to wait to draft a solid keystone contributor in the middle rounds. After the big names, Cano, Altuve, and Rendon, disappear off the board, one can start to find value at second base. The second tier should include Dee Gordon, Dozier, Kinsler, and Kipnis, but the...

The International Beat: Uncertainty Clouds Hector Olivera (and More)

Not surprisingly, when 29-year-old Cuban second basemen Hector Olivera held a showcase last week in the Dominican Republic, only one general manager joined the hundreds of scouts and other front office personnel in attendance. That GM — naturally — just so happened to be the Padres AJ Preller. Preller is like the cop who gets the promotion to the cushy office job after 20 years...

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...

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...

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...
