Whatever else happens in this draftMcBain, Tue Jun 4 13:50
We must sign Hudson Head.
Really enjoying this seasonjst25, Sun Apr 14 15:59
I've already watched more games this year than the last five or six years combined and I sure hope this streak of good luck continues. Best record in the NL with a +1 run differential feels pretty magical.

    Manny Machado a Padre, all done but the i dotting and the t crossing.
  • Questions for the Off SeasonMark, Fri Oct 19 14:05
    Ok, so we've got some interesting questions in store this off season. Let's handle the most prevalent one first. What the hell do they do with Myers? Dude might still be their best player, but he's a good athlete, at least a good enough one they could dream playing at least 5 positions around the diamond. Do they try... more

    Was watching random videos on youtube when I came across this: https://youtu.be/jX1YHvHkrwI?t=44s Jerry Coleman calling a Khalil Greene home run. Feels like so long ago.
  • Getting Grandal backMcBain, Thu Jul 19 11:36
    4 years after the Kemp debacle, we get ourselves a new switch-hitting catcher with serious offensive upside. https://www.mlbtraderumors.com/2018/07/indians-acquire-brad-hand.html
  • Hosmerlongdistancefriar, Sun Feb 18, 2018 12:28
    Regardless of whether it is a good idea, Hosmer is now a Padre. With Headley, Galvas, and Hosmer the in field defense should be much better which should help Perdomo especially. I like that the ownership group is willing to spend money as part of the plan. If Cordero and Renfroe develop then that has to mean Myers is... more
  • Fall of the Dark KnightMark, Tue May 8, 2018 17:45
    I'm sure everyone has seen it already, but the Mets DFA Matt Harvey. Padres interested. Mets want a catcher (I'll assume it's not Hedges) Personally.....I'd throw the dude into the pen. Getting a couple of MPH back on the FB, seems like it might make him good again. Then again I think this about every single SP that... more
    There's Your Nominal Rule 5 (ish) PickMark, Fri Feb 16, 2018 18:11
    Rowan Wick off waivers from St. Louis. Converted C to Outfield, then to RP. Evidently he throws hard, doesn't everybody these days? He does have options remaining and I'd guess, it'll be easier to sneak him through waivers closer to the end of spring training. Hope everyone's ready for spring training- Mark
    A Point Against Signing HosmerMark, Wed Jan 31, 2018 14:23
    First, some love for Cordero: https://www.fangraphs.com/blogs/the-most-exciting-player-on-the-padres/ Really, I think this makes up my entire argument against signing Hosmer. They're early enough in the cycle, to want more data before making any significant investments. I'd assume that signing Hosmer moves Myers to... more
  • KTMcBain, Tue Jan 30, 2018 21:35
    Damn. I honestly had no idea he was so young. He was barely older than me. Some of his gunslinging led to a bullet in his own foot, but he never stopped trying. Even when he had no money to spend and nothing to trade, he went down fighting. And he was always gracious when chatting with this particular fan over the... more

    Am I just now coming out of a coma from when I drowned saving Lana's life eight months ago? I don't understand this move at all. Mitchell's not remotely interesting enough to take on Headley's payroll. There must be more happening.... more

  • GalvisMcBain, Fri Dec 15, 2017 15:36
    I do not like it, Sam I Am. Sure, any pitching prospect is a lottery ticket, and De Los Santos was in our second tier. Galvis' defense gives him a decent floor. But he's here for one year, a year in which the only thing that matters is developing / acquiring pieces for 2019 and beyond. I can't shake the fear that the... more

  • BC Of Couse: Tatis Switches AgentsMark, Thu Oct 26, 2017 13:39
    To Scott Boras. Of course he did. I'm not sure there's anything that sums up the Padres experience more than having your first top 10 prospect in what 10 years, but already knowing that you might not even have him for any part of his prime. Hope everyone is doing well-

    So, a high school pitcher and two HS catchers. Someone tell me what to feel. Should I be angry? Excited?

    Clean up the spam and keep this forum alive! Been coming here since 1998 and hate to see it fade away.
    Anyone home?Alan, Wed Apr 5, 2017 00:25
    There's no much hope for this year, but I'm more interested than I was last year. The rotation is terrible, but with Renfroe and Margot and Hedges, I'm excited to see some of the young guys.
