Series Preview: Angels vs. Padres vs. Jet Lag

As a blogger, I am very good at separating myself from the Angels, regardless of fandom. Very rarely will I use terms like “we” or “us” when referring to the team and anything that happens on the field. With that being said, I hate losing to Boston. Hate hate hate it. Especially when losing to Boston means that the Angels’ unbeaten streak, with regards to series’, comes...

Padres-Angels Preview

The Los Angeles Angels are returning from a lengthy road trip on the other side of the country, but their winning percentage remains the same as the day they left - exactly .500. The Angels will try again to break free from mediocrity in a 10-game homestand that begins Monday night against the San Diego Padres, and Jered Weaver will attempt to start that on a winning note by adding...

Nationals’ Prospect Joe Ross Excelling for Harrisburg Senators

You could forgive Washington Nationals’ fourth-ranked prospect Joe Ross for feeling a little miffed when a December trade sent him from the San Diego Padres organization to the Nationals as part of the trade that brought Wil Myers to San Diego. The 22-year-old Ross, the Padres’ first round pick in 2011, was about to enter his crucial first full season at the Double-A level, which...

Daily SP Rankings: Weekend, May 23-25

With Memorial Day coming this Monday, we have a rare full slate of baseball to kick off the fantasy week. Unfortunately, it’s one of the more mediocre sets of probable starters I can remember. There are 19 pitchers that rate average or better, but 12 of them rate between 100-110, meaning only a little above average. Both Saturday and Sunday have only eight such starts. At the...

Ross pitches well in Padres' 3-2 loss to Cubs

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- The San Diego Padres couldn't break through against Tsuyoshi Wada and the Chicago Cubs enough to give Tyson Ross the victory. Ross pitched well for seven innings but the Padres lost 3-2 on Wednesday night. "He gave us every opportunity to win. We had the opportunities but we just didn't get the big hit," manager Bud Black said. Ross (2-4) allowed three runs and...

Ross, Padres host Cubs in second game of series

Tyson Ross has been one of baseball's best strikeout artists this year, though it's come with a price - lots of walks. It could be feast or famine Wednesday night for the San Diego Padres starter against the visiting Chicago Cubs, who also do a lot of both. Ross (2-3, 3.94 ERA) earned his first victory in six starts Thursday, giving up two runs while striking out six over five-plus...

Daily SP Rankings: Wednesday, May 20

On Wednesday just 11 of the 30 starters rate average or better, and there’s a very high concentration of sub-90 starters. One starter who does rate average is Jered Weaver, which is still tough for me to believe given what we’ve seen from him this season. Then again, his last two starts have been much more impressive. Does that mean start him against the Blue Jays here? Ehhh…probably...

Series Preview: Chicago Cubs (21-16) at San Diego Padres (19-20)

The Cubs face the Padres for the second (and presumably final) time this year. It’s a west coast roadtrip, one of the few times I’m glad that I don’t live in the greatest time zone. I should be able to catch all of these games, or at least fall asleep on the couch around the eight innings or so. Or drive to see some of them in person Team leaders Current and projected listed...

Padres rotation leads majors in quality starts

You’d think that leading the league in quality starts would mean that you have a great rotation. However, thus far the Padres’ rotation has underachieved compared to last year and preseason expectations. As Padres writer Bill Center points out, a “quality start” means allowing up to three runs in six innings which equates to a 4.50 ERA.Despite leading the majors with 21 quality...

Nationals-Padres in rare rain delay in San Diego

SAN DIEGO (AP) The Washington Nationals game at San Diego is in a rare rain delay. It is only the fifth rain delay since Petco Park opened in 2004. The last rain delay at Petco was on April 8, 2011, when a game against the Los Angeles Dodgers was suspended and resumed the next day. It had rained earlier Thursday, but the tarp came off about an hour before first pitch. Rain started...

Daily SP Rankings: Thursday, May 14

Thursday gives us our typical short slate with 22 starters to choose from, only seven of whom rate average or better! It’s slim pickings on a slimmer day. Tyson Ross has had major control issues so far and is running into a fairly hot Washington lineup. I like Ross long term, but in the short term this start concerns me. Brett Anderson at home against the Rockies looks like...
