Myers sets the record straight

Wil Myers told U-T San Diego that he was misquoted in an article for where he is quoted as saying, "Almost everything I do is to be able to prove them wrong.""Them" certainly sounds like he's referring to the Rays, but apparently he didn't mean to single out his former team. Dennis Lin in the U-T clarified what Myers meant:"It was completely taken out of context," Myers told...

San Diego Padres: Notes on opening series

The San Diego Padres dropped two of three to the Los Angeles Dodgers in the opening series of the season. There’s not much, if any, conclusions you can come after only three games. It’s an incredibly tiny sample size, and there shouldn’t be any definitive judgments made. Still, some interesting things happened in the series that give me hope that all the hype and offseason...

San Diego Padres: Previewing the bench

Will Venable An underrated part of the San Diego Padres’ offseason was how their big-time acquisitions allowed them to upgrade their bench with in-house options. Guys like Will Venable, Abraham Almonte, Tommy Medica and Yangervis Solarte aren’t going to get regular at-bats, something that was far too common over the last several years. With less chances to be exposed, a lot...

San Diego Padres: 3 up and 3 down

Wil Myers Just about everything went wrong for the San Diego Padres on offense last year. Cleanup hitter Carlos Quentin got injured. Third baseman Chase Headley was mired in a slump for much of the first two months, and second baseman Jedd Gyorko was so awful after signing a contract extension the Padres had to make up an injury to keep him out of the lineup. Will Venable, who hit...

Breaking Down the Prospects in the Wil Myers Trade

The days-rumored mega deal has happened and I’m here to break down all the prospects.  I’ve put them in order of preference, though the top two prospects have the same grade, so you could flip-flop them if you prefer the instant impact of Souza over the positional scarcity of Turner.

Report: Padres, Rays talking Wil Myers trade

The San Diego Padres have made a significant splash this winter in acquiring Matt Kemp from the Dodgers, and they’ve sniffed around some other bats (Yasmany Tomas, Justin Upton, Pablo Sandova) as well. But San Diego’s latest potential venture in the trade market is one that I don’t think anyone saw coming – the team is reportedly discussing a blockbuster trade with the Tampa...

Wil Myers tapes camera to hat for bird's eye view of spring training workout

Looking for a new spring perspective? Wil Myers is happy to oblige.
