Game 12 Preview: 04/18 Padres @ Cubs

The Padres began their road trip with an exciting win over the Cubs that involved not one, but TWO comebacks, and included homers from two different Wil(l)s. As many noted, it was a refreshing and new feeling to be able to still believe comebacks were possible after going down by more than a run, and to be able to rely on offense to back their pitchers when they aren't perfect. Others also pointed out how nice it was that, despite getting no offense from Derek Norris, Matt Kemp, OR Justin Upton, the team still put up five runs. Eleven games into the season and it feels like we can...

Padres 3, Diamondbacks 2: Justin Upton is unstoppable

Justin Upton went yard to left field for the second straight night to wrap up the homestand with another Padres win. The 2015 season is now ten games old, and ten games is generally what we refer to as a "small sample size." You can't look at any statistics right now and take them seriously. And yet, watching Justin Upton, I'm ready to throw all that away. After going 3 for 4 tonight with a game-winning home run, Upton is batting .351. And with Nori Aoki going hitless for San Francisco tonight, Upton is the only National League player who still has an active 10-game hitting streak. And...

Upton brothers on the same team again not necessarily a good thing

After Padres GM A.J. Preller completed the trade that brought Craig Kimbrel and Melvin Upton to San Diego I saw some tweets theorizing that maybe taking on Melvin's notoriously bad contract was an attempt to lure Justin into a contract extension so he could continue to play with his brother for years to come. I had quite the opposite feeling after reading this USA Today article earlier in the Spring.  I immediately thought of it when I heard the news.  It took me a while to figure out where I'd read it, but Justin describes the burden it became. Castoffs Justin Upton, Matt Kemp, Wil Myers...
