The Ghost Goes to the Minor Leagues

Some would say I should have stayed there. Last night, seeing as the Padres had an off-day, I attended the (Padres high Single-A affiliate) Lake Elsinore Storm’s home opener at The Diamond. Unfortunately, the Storm lost to the Houston Astros-affiliated Lancaster JetHawks by a score of 6-5 in 11 innings. However, 7,920 fans showed up to watch and partake in the fun that is minor...

The Numbers Behind Why Vinnie Was Optioned ☆

The Padres won 13 of those 21 games. They lost all five in which he failed to go six. Andre Ethier and Adrián González have had the most success against Cashner, although both have done so in fewer than 15 plate...

Spring Notes

Forgive the extended absence. Between writing the Padres chapter for Baseball Prospectus 2014 and editing BP’s Futures Guide 2014, I’ve been busy. That didn’t stop me from watching a few spring training games. I saw two in person and three or four on MLB.tv, depending on whether you count the parts where I fell asleep. I also saw some backfield practice sessions, although not...

I know this is late by a few days, but I feel like the “State of the Giants” is something I should write about sooner than later, don’t you think? After all, they swept the Detroit Tigers in the World Series, had the NL MVP re-sign for basically the next decade and their stellar pitching staff held together though the whirlwind known as the offseason.
