PADRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Joaquin Benoit sidelined day-to-day with shoulder

Kennedy rolls, Padres walk off again against Dodgers

As the Padres stockpiled towering, power arms for the start of this campaign, the elder statesman on the Padres coaching staff warned onlookers this spring not to dismiss the 6-foot flat right-hander deemed a something of a reclamation project some six months earlier. Never doubt pitching coach Darren Balsley. Never. In continuing this bounceback season, the unassuming Ian Kennedy...

While You Were Drinking 2014 Game 133 (LAD vs SD)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after an evening at the pub.  Then you fall asleep and miss the last two-and-a-half innings.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (63-70) defeated the Los Angeles Dodgers (76-59) in 12 innings last night, 3-2, on a walk-off RBI single by Yasmani Grandal.  The 12th also saw the...

Appreciate The Passion

When the Padres announced that they had decided to name some part of Petco Park after Bud Selig, fans were understandable confused and upset. Bud Selig never really seemed to make San Diego much of a priority during his tenure. It was strange to hear that he was instrumental in saving baseball in San Diego, which seems to have been a state secret so closely guarded that local media...

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...

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...

The Padres Are Blowing It: The “Your Name Here” Hall of Fame Plaza

Wow!  We haven’t had a “Padres Are Blowing It” entry in a long while.  Since last March, in fact. In case you missed it, the Padres yesterday were visited by outgoing Major League Baseball Commissioner Allan “Bud” Selig.  Before the game, the Padres had a press event to announce that the Palm Court Plaza was going to be redesigned into a Padres Hall of Fame and renamed...

Benoit Hurting, Kevin Quackenbush Should Be Owned

San Diego Padres closer, Joaquin Benoit, has been dealing with some shoulder issues recently and hasn’t taken the field in over a week. He could be headed to the DL soon to give him time to heal properly. Subbing for Benoit last night was Kevin Quackenbush. He earned his first save of the season and could be the closer for the foreseeable future. He sports a 2.35 ERA and a nice...

WATCH: Padres make catches in stands on back-to-back plays

The San Diego Padres have had a largely miserable season. But things are looking up in the second half, as the Friars currently have one of baseball’s best winning percentages since the All-Star break. At least they are giving San Diego’s fans something to cheer for. They did that again on Tuesday night. While a home series against the 46-72 Colorado Rockies might not seem exciting...
