What does Seth Smith extension say about Padres’ future?

Being currently without a general manager isn’t stopping the San Diego Padres from doing some business. It’s just a bit curious that transactions like signing players to new contracts are happening without the executive that would normally attend to such matters in place. The Padres signed outfielder Seth Smith to a two-year contract extension on Wednesday, keeping the 31-year...

The (sort of) Puzzling Seth Smith Extension

The year is 2026. After a 10 year run of dominance in the National League West by the San Diego Padres, Jonah Keri has completed his fifth bestseller — Friar Fever: How Farhan Zaidi Took the Forgettable San Diego Padres from Cellar-Dwellers to the Top of the Baseball World. Consider this passage, from the first chapter: … Josh Byrnes was ousted after two-and-a-half years of mediocrity...

Mr. Smith Gets Extended

Seth Smith will be a Padre through the 2016 season, with a club option for 2017.  Mixed reactions to this extension are to be expected. On the one hand, he has been an average to above average player based on his 108 wRC+ over the entirety of his career. As Dave Cameron points out, the contract isn’t onerous and actually retains his services at a discount based on his performance...

Padres give Seth Smith two-year extension

getty images The San Diego Padres seem to have ruled out trading outfielder Seth Smith after signing him to two-year contract extension on Wednesday. Smith’s availability had some contenders contacting the Padres but the team instead have given him a two-year deal worth $13 million. Additionally there is a $7 million club option for 2017 which will guarantee Smith at-least a $250...

Padres, Smith Agree to 2-year/$13MM Extension

For a team that’s poised and ready to sell off its roster (being 10-games under .500 at the time of this writing and just two weeks away from the All-Star break), a 2-year extension worth $13 million doesn’t really seem like the type of thing the Padres would be prepared to offer. Nonetheless, the Padres have reportedly agreed to a 2-year extension with outfielder Seth Smith...

Streaking And Seth Smith Cycles Subsequently (Nearly)

The Padres are on their first 3-game winning streak of the season! Within this streak, the Padres have put up their highest and second-highest (as well as their seventh-highest) run totals of the season. During said streak, Seth Smith has missed a cycle by one hit on consecutive days (needing a home run on Friday, a single on Saturday). I figured these were interesting, albeit meaningless...
