The San Diego Padres have officially given up on their playoff hopes

Orlando Ramirez-USA TODAY Sports

There is one move in the lineup today that proves the San Diego Padres have finally waved the white flag.

Who should the Padres bring back in 2022?

The Padres had a good start to 2021. At 36-24, they were only one game off their 2020 playoff-bound mark in a truncated season. But things have gone much worse since.

It hasn’t been all downhill since the 60-game start. On August 10 they held a 4½-game lead in the second wild card spot, with an 80.2-percent chance to reach the postseason by FanGraphs. But in the last six weeks the Padres are 10-26, the worst...

Signs are pointing towards the San Diego Padres moving on from manager Jayce Tingler at the end of the season, as the team is likely going to miss out on the postseason despite entering 2021 as one of the World Series favorites. The most popular name you’ll hear if the Padres...
