Padres Seth Smith: The (Very) Poor Man’s Paul Goldschmidt

The San Diego Padres acquired Seth Smith in a trade last winter.  It wasn’t a move that generated many headlines as Smith had just finished a season in which he hit .250 with just 8 home runs to go with well below average baserunning and poor defense.  Luke Gregerson, the player that the Padres shipped to Oakland for Smith, is a good reliever, a solid 8th inning guy who has filled...

Padres Week 22 Recap: Solid finish after some spotty starts

Thursday @ Dodgers: 1-2 Loss Los Angeles Series Recap Tyson Ross went toe-to-toe with Clayton Kershaw, but one error is all it takes against the best pitcher in baseball and that's all it took to swing the narrative of Ross' outing. Instead of being labeled the star of the night, one elevated slider to Justin Turner in the eighth inning made Ross just the side note of another...

Why do they do this to us?

It takes a lot… and I mean a whole lot to make me angry at the Padres.  I like to think of myself as the “positive guy” who looks at the Padres without skepticism, as if the glass is eternally half full. You have to hand it to “Selig Hall of Fame Plaza”, because it finally got me to dislike this front office. Are you listening, Mike Dee?  You made the positive guy negative...

Almonte, Padres back streaking Ross

As hot hands go, Abraham Almonte is making quite a push to procure a good portion of the at-bats available in the increasingly crowded outfield in San Diego. Tyson Ross’ right hand, of course, is as hot as ever.

Led by Ross, Padres slide past Brewers

Having already faced off against four former Cy Young Award winners in his first eight starts of the season, Jimmy Nelson already knows a thing or two about pitching opposite of the best baseball has to offer. That means he also understands how small the margin for error is against certain pitchers. Give San Diego ace Tyson Ross any kind of run support and he usually wins. Such was...

Home Plate Plays

As Scott accurately summarized, last night the Padres were blown out by Milwaukee 10-1.  The Padres had only one good look at that game, loading the bases in the second inning with two out and the score tied.  Sadly Will Venable reprised his first-half role instead of the Good August Venable, swinging and missing at 3 high fastballs to end the inning. Two batters earlier, the Padres...
