Padres Injury Update: Odrisamer Despaigne won't make another start

The San Diego Padres enter the final weekend of the 2014 season against the San Francisco Giants with a record of 76-83, third in the National League West. Out of playoff contention, largely due to an offense that is 30th in the Major Leagues in runs scored. A bright spot has been the pitching, which is in the top 10 in team ERA. One pitcher who will not make another appearance...

Medica homers as Padres win final home game of season over Rockies

With their staff humming along toward perhaps the finest season in 46 seasons of pitching in San Diego and their offense again lacking, to put it mildly, the Padres willy surely seek out opportunities for upgrades this offseason.

Friars Should Take Run At Cuban FA OF Tomas

I think I speak for all Padres fans when I say I want the club to pursue an acquisition for a legitimate big bat this winter. Not an injury-prone, defensive liability entering the decline phase of what has been a decent, but hardly great, career (Carlos Quentin). Not a steady platoon bat that the Friars hope to unrealistically squeeze more production from by inserting into the lineup...

Padres Rumors: Bud Black to return to San Diego in 2015

End of season post-mortem: San Diego Padres

The Padres were viewed as a sleeper contender coming into the 2014 season. They probably weren’t capable of hanging with the Dodgers and Giants (or maybe even the Diamondbacks) in the NL West, but if either of the favorites faltered and the Padres’ roster stayed healthy throughout the season, there was a chance that meaningful baseball could be played in San Diego during September...
