Padres Chris Paddack (Fernando Rodney Trade) Out Indefinitely

The Padres are playing it safe with Chris Paddack, the top pitching prospect who they received in exchange for Fernando Rodney, after he felt stiffness in his forearm down in Single A Fort Wayne.

Returning champions, new stars highlight Olympic wrestling

Three years ago, the wrestling community was forced to contemplate life without the Olympics. Now back on the program, the world's oldest sport is hoping that the Rio Games can be a showcase for everything that's changed since then. The IOC's surprising decision to leave wrestling out of the Olympics after one final appearance in 2016 turned out to be the proverbial "kick in the pants" the sport suddenly realize it needed.

Trade Rumor: Fernando Rodney heading to Miami

The days of archery at Petco Park may be numbered. It’s not even July, but A.J. Preller is ready to make a move. While some of the more promising Padres trade bait like Jon Jay and Tyson Ross sit on the disabled list, Fernando Rodney is turning in the best season of his career. An elite closer doesn’t do much good for a team not doing much winning, which makes him the perfect target for a team that might just need that little extra push. Like, say, the Miami Marlins. Heard the Padres and Marlins are nearing a deal for Fernando Rodney for a good A-ball prospect— keithlaw (@keithlaw)...

Padres have reversed their decision to name Hall of Fame Plaza after Bud Selig

The Padres are opening their Hall of Fame this Friday. The Hall of Fame should have been something to celebrate for Padres fans, but it was spoiled by a naming ceremony for Bud Selig two years ago. If you remember, and I’m sure you do, Padres leadership made an atrocious decision to name the Hall of Fame Plaza after then Commissioner Bud Selig. The reason for doing so seemed obvious to us, it was a bribe to bring the All-Star Game to San Diego. It worked too . Padres Chairman Ron Fowler denied bribe accusations and instead accused fans of not understanding Selig's contributions, but we...

Padres month in review: Wil Myers' historic power surge headlined an eventful June

Led by budding superstar Wil Myers and his record-setting slugging, the Padres put together a respectable and very exciting month of June. After opening the season with a 9-15 record in April, then digging themselves deeper with an 11-18 May, San Diego played .500 ball in June, going 13-13. They played nine series against seven teams, four of which have a winning record; they won three, lost three, and split three. Along with his 11 home runs, which stand alone as the most ever hit by a Padres player in June, Myers hit 10 doubles to give him a total of 21 extra-base hits, tying him with...

TFHS Closer Look: 2016 Home Run Derby Cap

Check out this year's best (yeah, I said it) cap: the 2016 Home Run Derby cap! It's a shame, really. The year's best looking official on-field cap (by a huge margin) is probably going to be unworn, for the most part. That's the thing about the Home Run Derby. The longball competition has evolved into a different beast nowadays, but most players who participate in the Derby eschew their caps. It's a real shame, because this cap is an absolute looker. The Home Run Derby cap is a newer addition to Major League Baseball's growing list of special event caps. Making its debut in 2014 as a plain...
