Retrospective Player Comments: Bip Roberts

The Ducksnorts 2008 Baseball Annual included a section called “Overlooked ex-Padres.” I’d wanted to call attention to four players–Ollie Brown, Mike Ivie, Ruppert Jones, and Bip Roberts–that maybe didn’t get their due in San Diego. The idea was noble, but the execution could have been better. Since I’ve spent much of the offseason writing player comments for Baseball Prospectus 2015 (#ShamelessPlug), I’m in the mind-set of condensing a man’s contributions to his team into a short paragraph with snappy phrases. In that vein, I thought it might be fun to revisit those players...

Wil Myers, AJ Preller, and the Ever-Changing Padres

At the beginning of last week’s winter meetings, the Padres arguably had more depth at catcher than any other major league organization with a trio composed of Rene Rivera, a former (and, apparently, still) journeyman turned defensive wizard who had a breakout year with the bat in 2014; Yasmani Grandal, a talented 26-year-old switch-hitter with a surprising knack for framing pitches; and Austin Hedges, an offensively-challenged 22-year-old in need of further seasoning, but also gifted with the best defensive catching skills in the minor leagues.
