Scouting The Trade Market: San Diego Padres

No team had a busier offseason than the Padres, who, under new GM A.J. Preller, made a handful of blockbuster trades and one big free agent signing. It didn’t work. The club comes into today with a 47-52 record and sub-5.0% postseason odds according to FanGraphs. I’m sure Preller was instructed by ownership to turn [...] Scouting The Trade Market: San Diego Padres is a post from: River Avenue Blues The post Scouting The Trade Market: San Diego Padres appeared first on River Avenue Blues.

Tyson Ross is a wanted man

The Padres' acquisitions, trades and rumors of acquisitions and trades have been the most exciting part of this season.  This is how we'll remember 2015, if we remember it all.  The rumors are swirling and sooner or later something is actually going to happen.  Good or bad, something is going to happen.  Believe it. It could be that the Padres will try to fill their organizational black hole at shortstop with Starlin Castro who's been struggling this season with the Cubs, hoping that he's a fixer upper. #Cubs have discussed Starlin Castro with #Padres, sources tell @Ken_Rosenthal and...

Who was the Series MVP for the Padres/Marlins Series?

Determine who should be the most recent Series MVP for the Padres. With the 3rd series win out of the last 4, the Padres are continuing their string of playing some pretty nice baseball after winning the series against the Miami Marlins. In the last series against the Giants, Matt Kemp was the series MVP (because I didn't give you another choice). In this series, there are a few strong candidates for series MVP.

Padres are shopping basically all their players

Twitter has come alive with Padres rumors.  The team now appears to be basically shopping all their soon to be free agents, their relievers, their starters and everyone else too.  It seems that A.J. Preller and the Padres are being just aggressive as sellers as they were as buyers in the offseason.  This is a good thing, they need to retool at least and more than likely rebuild altogether. Late last week it was rumored that James Shields might be flipped quickly after signing his 3 year contract earlier in the year.  The problem is that scouts have seen some regression and that means...

The other ‘Johan’ Santana’s no-hitter, 4 years ago today.

Johan Ramon “Ervin” Santana threw a Los Angeles Angels no-hitter against the Cleveland Indians four years ago today. Santana, who took the new first name of Ervin in 2003 to avoid sharing the same name with the then Minnesota Twins pitcher, threw his gem on Wednesday, July 27, 2011 for a 3-1 win at Jacobs …

Padres 3, Marlins 2: Did Juston Upton just win his last home game at Petco Park?

With today's 3-2 victory over the Marlins, the Padres have wrapped up their homestand with a nice little winning streak. It remains to be seen how many players responsible for that streak will return to Petco Park after this road trip, but at least they're leaving on a high note. The Friars got on the board first, when Man Most Likely To Be Traded Justin Upton hit a leadoff homer in the second inning. Yonder Alonso and Jedd Gyorko followed up with a pair of singles to put runners at the corners, and Alonso scored on Alexi Amarista's sacrifice fly. The Marlins let those runs go unanswered...

Wil Myers has wrist pain, because we can't have nice things

Injured center fielder/first baseman/whatever it takes to get his bat in the lineup Wil Myers has been recovering from surgery he had last month to remove a bone spur from his left wrist. On Friday, there was some great news: Wil took a bunch of swings off the tee! More importantly, he did it without any pain. Of course, as Padres fans, we know that this good news has to be fleeting. Sure enough, Corey Brock had another update on Myers this morning. Wil Myers felt discomfort in left wrist after light swings. Will head to AZ to see doctor who performed surgery as a precaution. #Padres —...

Padres 3, Marlins 1: Ian Kennedy improves to a nice 6-9 on the season

A day after winning solely with home runs, the Padres employ small ball to get a 2-1 game advantage in the four-game set against the Marlins. The biggest story in all of baseball today, especially among pitchers with connections to San Diego, was that the Padres won the third game of their series against the Marlins behind one of Ian Kennedy's best starts of the season. Kennedy went 6+ innings, shutting out Miami for six innings before allowing a solo homer followed by a triple in the 7th inning, at which time he was pulled from the game. All in all, Kennedy allowed the one run on seven...

Game 98 Preview: 07/25 Padres vs. Marlins

Game 3 of the series pits Ian Kennedy against David Phelps. The Padres evened up their series against the Marlins last night in a game of home runs. The win put an end to a three-game skid and hopefully tonight they can get a winning streak going and clinch at least a series split against Miami. Ian Kennedy gets the ball for San Diego in game 3 of the four-game set. After having a rough start to his season, he's seen some improvement on the mound over the past couple of months, posting a 2.98 ERA in nine starts since the beginning of June. He has a 3-4 record in that stretch, but he kept...

Former Padres 3B Kevin Kouzmanoff turns 34

It seems like just the other day that Kevin Kouzmanoff was smashing doubles and smothering ground balls for the Padres. Of course it's been over five years and a lot has changed in that time. After his record-setting 2009 season in which he set the bar for third baseman with a .990 fielding percentage, earning his glove a spot in the Hall of Fame, Kouz was traded to Oakland in order to make room for Chase Headley. Kouzmanoff's performance declined, due in part to back troubles which plagued him his whole career. The A's sent him to Colorado in August, 2011, where he performed decently in 27...
