Embracing the Possibility of Yasmany Tomas

If there’s one thing that the San Diego Padres have become synonymous with in recent years, it’s not the acquisition of high-priced free agents. In fact, when the Padres doled out a combined three years and $23.5 million to pitchers Joaquin Benoit and Josh Johnson last offseason – a paltry sum in today’s market – it represented a relative spending outburst in San Diego...

Joaquin Benoit set to rejoin Padres bullpen

Whether or not Joaquin Benoit reclaims the closers role with the Padres to finish out the season remains to be seen. The veteran relief pitcher is again nearing a return from a balky shoulder and should be put back into a role at the back end of the Padres bullpen. In 50 games this season Benoit has 9 saves and 16 holds while posting a 1.58 ERA and a 0.82 WHIP.

Dodgers’ bullpen needs saving, but don’t expect Pedro Baez to do it

We all know the Dodgers missed a chance at the non-waiver trade deadline to add a relief pitcher (Joaquin Benoit). They also lost a chance to add one at the waiver trade deadline (Jonathan Papelbon, though, that isn’t on Ned Colletti). Now, they’re set to go into the playoffs with one of the shakier bullpens in recent memory. Jesse Spector of The Sporting News opined in March...

A Benoit Out Of Hand Isn’t Worth A Quackenbush

Amish text states vociferously that a Quackenbush should not render thou's biblical nature moot. Stating, "Eroticism is the devil's electricity, and our brains should not be hardwired to flip any switches when our nature's bell rings. You may want to churn butter into the Quackenbush--" I just realize I had a smudge on my Amish Schoolchildren Early Education textbook and it's...

Joaquin Benoit could require DL stint for shoulder

San Diego Padres closer Joaquin Benoit may end up on the 15-day disabled list due to his bothersome right shoulder. Benoit has not pitched since last Wednesday due to what has been termed “crankiness” in his right shoulder. In 48 games this season Benoit had a 1.64 ERA and a 0.85 WHIP. #Padres haven't ruled out a DL stint for Benoit (he of the cranky right shoulder). Could push...

MLB Trade Rumors: Tigers Interested in Ian Kennedy or Joaquin Benoit

The San Diego Padres moved third baseman Chase Headley and closer Huston Street prior to the July 31 trade deadline. Still, they declined to move two key pieces in Ian Kennedy and Joaquin Benoit, both of whom were in high demand. With the recent hiring of A.J. Preller as the General Manager, an August trade could be in order. It figures to be at least a couple years before the...

While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 115 (SD at PIT)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy when you spend an evening in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (53-62) defeated the Pittsburgh Pirates (62-54) 2-1 at PNC Park last night in a game that had all kinds of goofy plays on the Padres’ side of the diamond.  From players sliding into bases awkwardly to screwy...

Padres come back, beat Twins 5-4 in extra innings

MINNEAPOLIS (AP) -- Center fielder Alexi Amarista made a game-saving catch in the bottom of the ninth inning and Seth Smith followed with a solo homer in the 10th to lift the San Diego Padres to a 5-4 victory over the Minnesota Twins on Wednesday.

Rumors! Conjecture! And the Actual Moves From the Trade Deadline

Yesterday the MLB Trade Deadline came…and went. And while the week or so leading up to the deadline was quieter than recent memory in the way of rumors, the deadline day itself brought a flurry of moves that were, at times, difficult to keep up with. Add to that the newish trend of fake Twitter accounts of MLB writers and the information, and misinformation, was fast and furious...

Two Hours To Go

Lord, remember when this seemed boring? The Red Sox have traded half their team, and though their fans seem very upset, I think they’ve made out extremely well so far. (For FanGraphs, I wrote up the John Lackey / Allen Craig / Joe Kelly deal.) Jon Lester is in Oakland. Yoenis Cespedes is in Boston. Tommy Milone is in Minnesota, or, well, at least Rochester.

Bolstering the Brewers’ Bullpen

Baseball fans can discount nearly anything they hear at the trade deadline. Therefore, Milwaukee GM Doug Melvin’s suggestion that he might bolster his bullpen comes with enough grains of salt to fill the Dead Sea. Perhaps Melvin’s comments were merely an elaborate smokescreen designed to conceal his true intentions. Yet despite the unreliability of such statements, an upgrade...

One’s Man’s Trash: Benoit a Trois

Joaquin Benoit (+23%) was the most added player this week after Huston Street was traded to the Angels. Benoit was scooped up by those looking for saves obviously, but he's a decent pitcher all around. Can he be trusted going forward? The big question isn't whether we should pick up Benoit. That's a no-brainer in the short term. No, the big question is will he actually remain with...
