Bud Selig portrait commissioned by Padres is creepily macabre (photo)

A portrait of outgoing MLB commissioner Bud Selig now hangs in the lobby of the San Diego Padres’ offices at Petco Park. And to be kind, the portrait of Selig is, well, kinda creepy.

AJ Preller’s Forgotten Strengths

One of the interesting things about AJ Preller’s early reign as San Diego Padres general manager is just how quickly our perception of him has changed. Make no mistake, way back in August, there was plenty of optimism surrounding his hiring. Preller was known for his tireless work ethic, his expertise in the amateur international market, and his overall scouting/player development...

ZiP It Up And ZiP It Out – Padres 2015 ZiPS Projections

Fangraphs is releasing Dan Szymborski’s ZiPS projections one team at a time, and recently it was the new look Padres’ turn on the mic. I’ve developed quite an affinity for projections lately. I like projections because they take the emotion that naturally occurs in things that are awesome like baseball and removes it. Normally emotion is a good thing. It’s what makes baseball...

The Top 5 Things In Padres News That I Wrote About Just Now To Get You To Read This Piece

It’s been an exciting offseason, hasn’t it? That being said, there are a few things that we here at Padres Public haven’t necessarily been on top of. Okay, the fact is that Dustin and Nate do a great job of recapping & analyzing trades and roster moves. I, on the other hand, do not. Other than complaining about Alexi Amarista playing center field, I tend to focus on the...

Do the Padres Have Another Move in Them?

The Padres have made a flurry of moves this offseason, but the question is, does the front office have one last move in them? Coming for the local perspective, the team is just about set, according to a tweet by Dennis Lin of UT San Diego. However, a report surfaced by Jon Heyman of CBSSports.com that has once again linked the Padres to All Star pitcher Cole Hamels of the Phillies...

Padres to Host MLB Mid-Summer Classic in 2016

It’s been almost 23 years since the phrase “All-Star Game” was said with any legitimate purpose in San Diego, but you can never be too late when it comes to that sort of thing.

2016 MLB All-Star Game heading to San Diego

Apparently, the best way to earn an All-Star Game for your city and stadium is to…name a plaza after the outgoing commissioner. I’m not sure whether the crowning of the Bud Selig Hall of Fame Plaza is the reason for this or not, but the 2016 All-Star Game will be held at Petco Park in San Diego.

The Payroll That Must Be Discussed

At certain points this offseason, it looked like the Padres were treating their 2015 payroll like the Yankees or Dodgers might, by largely ignoring it. First, they were interested in premier free agents like Pablo Sandoval and Yasmany Tomas and, even though those deals predictably (at least at the time) fell through, the Padres made legitimate runs at players that would generally...

If the Phils don’t rid themselves of the few decent players they have, the team could be permanent cellar dwellers for the foreseeable future.

Trevor Hoffman: Not a First Ballot Hall of Famer?

To San Diego Padres fans the very idea of Trevor Hoffman not being inducted into the Hall of Fame in 2016, his first year of eligibility, would be nothing short of sheer blasphemy. However, that is exactly what some baseball experts and Hall of Fame voters have been stating since the 2015 Hall of Fame class was announced on January 6th.
