PADRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

September players of the month

Hitter of the month: C/1B – Yasmani Grandal September totals:  291/408/519 –   4 HR, 6 2B, 14 RBI, 16 R For a very short time in 2012, the tandem of Yasmani Grandal and Yonder Alonso became the Y’s guys because of their torrid offensive production.  Shortly there after, Alonso started getting hurt and dropped off the map.  Grandal got suspended and then hurt, wiping out...

The Good, the Bold, and the Ugly

There are two things you can do when you write a silly bold predictions piece, like the one I did just prior to the 2014 season: (1) try to forget about it and hope others do the same or (2) revisit it after the season and examine just how crazy you are. I’ve chosen option No. 2. The Padres will win 77 games and finish tied for third-place in the NL West (with the Diamondbacks...

New Padres GM: Bud Black returning as manager in 2015

  Arguably the worst year in San Diego Padres history ended with an eighth straight season out of the playoffs and manager Bud Black still employed. Now it's new general manager A.J. Preller's turn to start putting his stamp on a team that has good pitching, is in desperate need of impact bats and continues to struggle early in the season and then plays well when it'...

Black back with Padres despite playoff drought

SAN DIEGO (AP) Arguably the worst year in San Diego Padres history ended with an eighth straight season out of the playoffs and manager Bud Black still employed. Now it's new general manager A.J. Preller's turn to start putting his stamp on a team that has good pitching, is in desperate need of impact bats and continues to struggle early in the season and then plays well...

Bring On The Off Season

Well, they did it. Hooray. The Padres broke the 76 win curse, winning more games this season than they did in any of the previous three seasons. Unfortunately, they only beat the previous two seasons by one win, finishing with a 77-85 record. Unfortunately-er, had they stuck to the 76 win streak, they would have had a protected first round pick in next year’s draft, as tying with...

Padres Injury Update: Odrisamer Despaigne won't make another start

The San Diego Padres enter the final weekend of the 2014 season against the San Francisco Giants with a record of 76-83, third in the National League West. Out of playoff contention, largely due to an offense that is 30th in the Major Leagues in runs scored. A bright spot has been the pitching, which is in the top 10 in team ERA. One pitcher who will not make another appearance...

Padres Week 26 Recap: Finishing strong

Thursday vs Phillies: 7-3 Win Philadelphia Game Recap Robbie Erlin allowed just five base runners and one earned run in six quality innings, giving the Padres exactly what they needed to win this series. The offense was paced by Alexi Amarista (2-3, HR, 2 RBI, and 2 runs) and Will Venable (his 3-run homer in the eighth sealed the fate of this one), but nearly every starter contributed...

Padres were selling Johnny Manziel jerseys

Everybody’s cashing in—or is trying to, anyway. While drafting Johnny Manziel to play second base was a nice publicity move earlier this summer, the San Diego Padres reportedly took things a step further by selling his jersey inside of the team’s shop.

Interview With Josh Stein, San Diego Padres Assistant General Manager

Josh Stein, Assistant General Manager of the San Diego Padres started with the team as a law student in 2003. A graduate of La Jolla High School and UC Berkeley, the long-tenured member of the Padres front office has worked in many roles. I had the awesome opportunity to meet with Josh last week at Petco Park. We chatted for about half an hour below a framed, white 1984 Tony Gwynn...

Friars Should Take Run At Cuban FA OF Tomas

I think I speak for all Padres fans when I say I want the club to pursue an acquisition for a legitimate big bat this winter. Not an injury-prone, defensive liability entering the decline phase of what has been a decent, but hardly great, career (Carlos Quentin). Not a steady platoon bat that the Friars hope to unrealistically squeeze more production from by inserting into the lineup...

Padres Rumors: Bud Black to return to San Diego in 2015

It's been a tough season for the San Diego Padres. They fired their general manager, Josh Byrnes, earlier in the season, hired another in A.J. Preller, and are going to miss the playoffs again. There has not been postseason baseball in San Diego since 2006. With organizational changes already being made in the front office, some questions have been raised as to whether manager...

End of season post-mortem: San Diego Padres

The Padres were viewed as a sleeper contender coming into the 2014 season. They probably weren’t capable of hanging with the Dodgers and Giants (or maybe even the Diamondbacks) in the NL West, but if either of the favorites faltered and the Padres’ roster stayed healthy throughout the season, there was a chance that meaningful baseball could be played in San Diego during September...

Everth Cabrera arrested for DUI in San Diego

In a season marred by injury, disappointment, and historically bad performances, it doesn’t seem that the 2014 season can end soon enough for the San Diego Padres without first enduring some extra drama before game 162. This morning, TMZ Sports announced on Twitter – along with a confirmed Police Report – that Padres shortstop Everth Cabrera was arrested shortly after midnight...
