2014 Padres Year In Review: Everth Cabrera

2013 was a banner year for Everth Cabrera. All-Star Game selection. 37 steals. Career highs in many offensive categories. It made you think the Padres had their shortstop and lead-off hitter for the future. 2014 brought all that back to earth. Cabrera hit .232/.272/.300 with three homers, 20 RBI and 18 steals. He then hurt […] 2014 Padres Year In Review: Everth Cabrera - Friars on Base - Friars on Base - A San Diego Padres Fan Site - News, Blogs, Opinion and More

2015 Position Outlook: Catcher

LOS ANGELES -- It’s hard to think of the Los Angeles Dodgers without A.J. Ellis. It’s also hard to think of them paying him more than the $3.5 million he made last season and, now that he’s eligible for arbitration the second time, that’s a risk they may be unwilling to face. There might be a middle ground. Odds are the Dodgers will not tender Ellis a contract, but that doesn’t mean he’s gone. They could non-tender him and then negotiate with him and subsequently sign him to a lower salary.

On the road, it was a different story. The Padres won 29 games, the second lowest total in all of baseball (the lowest total: Colorado with 21). The 19 game win differential between home and road was the second largest differential in baseball, second only to those same Rockies. First, a bit on the importance of that 19 game difference. This year, both NL Wild Card ... Read the full post
