San Diego Padres: Small market woes

The unfortunate reality is that the San Diego Padres are never going to get the same amount of attention as the Yankees or Dodgers due to being in a small market.

Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres preview, Wednesday 6/21, 1:20 CT

Chicago Cubs vs. San Diego Padres preview, Wednesday 6/21, 1:20 CT

The Cubs go for their first series sweep since early June. The Cubs last swept a series June 2-3-4 against the Cardinals at Wrigley Field. That was followed by taking the first two of a set against the Marlins; the five-game winning streak was the season's longest to date. It still is. That five-game winning streak was followed by a four-game losing streak that extended into losing seven of 10. Now the Cubs have won three in a row and can make it four by taking the final game of the season against the Padres. If they can do that, the teams will have traded sweeps and wind up 3-3 for the...

Padres 0, Cubs 4: Friars drop game two in a shutout, but keep their integrity

Padres 0, Cubs 4: Friars drop game two in a shutout, but keep their integrity

It wasn’t the worst loss, but at least we didn’t try to inflict damage on another player in order to win. A combination of letting runs sneak through and failing to bring runners home added up to the L. There was no added drama, the Friars took the high road, and the Cubs and their fanbase will continue to fail to see what they did wrong. Alas. The good Not much excitement came out of today from the good guys. Luis Torrens went 2-for-4, Chacin managed to get a hit, and Wil Myers made it to base 3 times on 3 walks. Heck, Jhoulys Chacín actually had a pretty good outing. He collected...

Yangervis Solarte headed to DL

Yangervis Solarte headed to DL

An oblique strain douses the Padres’ hottest hitter. The heart and soul of the Padres’ clubhouse, and their hottest hitter of late, is headed to the disabled list. Yangervis Solarte appears destined for the disabled list, but it's unlikely the Padres have his replacement here in time for tomorrow's game— AJ Cassavell (@AJCassavell) June 21, 2017 He was on the starting lineup for tonight’s game against the Cubs, and he didn’t come to the plate in the first inning. But when the bell rang to take his position at second base at the bottom of the first, Chase d’Arnaud took his...

Anthony Rizzo will not be punished for injuring Austin Hedges

Anthony Rizzo will not be punished for injuring Austin Hedges

But maybe Joe Maddon should be. It’s been a tempestuous 24 hours for Padres and Cubs fans, with the San Diego crowd angry that their young star and dreamboat, Austin Hedges, got totally bulldozed by Anthony Rizzo in a play deemed illegal by MLB. Meanwhile in Wrigleyville, baseball’s ascendant villains worried about retaliation from the Friars and defended their guy with a resounding cry of “Nuh-uh!” Well, Andy Green put some of those concerns to rest in an interview with 1090’s Darren Smith today. On @Mighty1090, Andy Green indicated that the Padres will not seek retaliation...

San Diego Padres: From this angle Rizzo-Hedges collision a cheap shot

Anthony Rizzo’s collision with Austin Hedges on Monday night was absolutely inappropriate, and the San Diego Padres are right to be infuriated.

MLB concludes Rizzo violated collision rule

Cubs 1B Anthony Rizzo defended his rolling up into a ball like Sonic the Hedgehog and taking out Austin Hedges last night saying that most people don’t understand the rule like he does. Padres' Austin Hedges injured in collision | MLB.com "I've talked to a lot of umpires about this rule," he said. "My understanding is if [the catcher has] the ball, it's game on." It turns out that he, manager Joe Maddon and every Cubs fan in my Twitter mentions are the ones that don’t understand the rule.
