Local sports briefs for Sept. 26: Royals acquire shortstop Jackson

The Kansas City Royals announced Wednesday they have acquired infielder Ryan Jackson from the Los Angeles Dodgers in exchange for cash considerations. Jackson, 26, missed most of the 2014 season with a right wrist injury. He was claimed off waivers by the Dodgers from the San Diego Padres on Nov. 3. The shortstop played in six games at Triple-A El Paso, going 3 for 16 with a double and five walks. He also played in five games on his rehab assignment with the Padres’ Arizona Rookie League Team. read more

The 2015 First Ballot Hall of Famers that should go in as San Diego Padres, maybe.

The ballots for the Hall of Fame are out. Let's get some more Padres in there. The 2015 ballot for the Hall of Fame is flush - flush, I say - with Padres. Now it's just a matter of figuring out which ones get cars and cushy front office jobs with the team and baseball plazas at Petco Park named after them in exchange for having their likeness forever linked to the San Diego Padres in Hall of Fame immortality. Here is a sampling of the first balloters that have some reasonable chance of getting into the Hall of Fame as a Padre if they were in fact to get into the Hall of Fame. Clear?...

Why I Don’t Like the Reymond Fuentes Trade (And Why I Could Be Totally Wrong)

I finally created a Twitter account earlier this month, if you’re into that sort of thing.  *** The 40-man roster crunch forced the Padres to make a decision last week: clear room on the 40-man roster for Reymond Fuentes; allow him to be exposed (and likely taken) in the Rule 5 draft; or trade him. The Padres chose option three, dealing the left-handed slap-hitting speedster to the Kansas City Royals for 23-year-old lefty reliever Kyle Bartsch. Fuentes’ departure leaves Casey Kelly as the last remaining piece of the late-2010 Adrian Gonzalez-to-Boston deal still in San...

Retrospective Player Comments: Ollie Brown

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...

Padres History with Joe Furtado: Chapter 6 – “1973″ The Wrong Game In the Wrong Town

*Back in 1988, Padres fan and local San Diegan Joe Furtado, started writing a book based on Padres history up to that point. 21 Chapters later he finished it and after a few failed attempts at getting it published, put it back on his shelf never to see the light of day…..that is until now. To read the other entries, click here. By Joe Furtado: In spite of the announcement that the team would still be in San Diego in 1973, there were still those who felt it was only a matter of time before poor attendance forced the Padres to move. ...
