Padres' $144M Eric Hosmer Risk Backfiring, Giving Credibility to MLB Tanking

The 2017-18 MLB offseason was defined by teams not spending. Stars were stranded in limbo. Impact players twiddled their thumbs. In the end, every worthy free agent found a home, but many settled for far less ducats than they expected...

Padres 13, Rockies 5: Where there’s thunder...

There are Padres scoring lots of runs.

Throughout some heavy drizzle, lightning in the sky, thunder rumbling through Coors Field; the Padres blew things up tonight. The bullpen held things down and the lineup capitalized on some juicy 1st and 7th innings.

After the Friars kicked things off in the top of the 1st, Bryan Mitchell got tagged for an equal amount of damage. Two two-run home runs to Nolan Arenado and Trevor Story in the bottom of the inning, then an RBI-double to Ian Desmond....

Franchy's HR ignites 9-run inning for Padres

Franchy Cordero launched a go-ahead two-run homer in the top of the seventh inning Monday night in Colorado, and the Padres' offense poured it on from there. Cordero's homer sparked a nine-run seventh inning and a much-needed breakout for a Padres lineup that struggled over the past week.

Eric Lauer primed to debut in Denver

One of the Padres top pitching prospects is lined up to start Tuesday’s game against the Rockies

When Luis Perdomo was sent down to AAA El Paso last week, a void was left in the rotation. The team’s options to fill that void were numerous, but none drew as much attention as Eric Lauer. The news isn’t official, but he’s in Denver working out with the team, so the roster move is really a foregone conclusion at this point.

Eric Lauer will become only the 7th starter ever to debut at...

Padres Preview: 04/23 @ Rockies

Bryan Mitchell will start the series in Colorado.

The Padres will end up back at the scene of the scrap in Colorado for yet another 3 game set. This will be the last time we’ll have to stare at Bud Black and co. until mid-May.

Bryan Mitchell will start in tonight’s game. I’m not sure if he’s going to throw at any Rockies or if he’s even capable of doing so with accuracy. But I digress; the righty has had an absolute tough go to start the season, coming into tonight’s contest with...

Christian Villanueva made this loss worth watching

The Padres’ rookie third baseman continues to mash, while his teammates looked listless

Over the years I’ve conditioned myself to focus on whatever positives that could be drawn from that day’s Padres game since more times than not, there’s not a win to fall back on. I, to quote The Bouncing Souls, as I do so frequently, “find what’s good and make it last”. Today that was Christian Villanueva. The Padres’ rookie third baseman hit his seventh home run of the year, putting him...

Lucchesi hits speed bump, offense goes frozen

Mitchell starts as Padres return to Colorado

The Padres will visit the Rockies for a three-game series, beginning at 5:40 p.m. PT on Monday night. The matchup has been heated this season and frustrations came to a head when the two clubs brawled in the final game of the last set they played. Bryan Mitchell will take the mound for the Padres in the opener. Through 19 2/3 innings over four starts, he's walked 17 batters. The Padres will face Rockies righty Chad Bettis, who has given up just one run in his last two starts.

After a hot start, then a flash-freeze at the plate, the San Diego Padres’ second baseman is beginning to look a little more comfortable at the plate.
