David Schoenfield is the man behind ESPN’s early rankings, and I think you’ll all be pretty okay with his list because your Padres come in at #3, behind only the...

Wil Myers named Padres’ most-realistic trade chip

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

This sounds familiar.

Fernando Tatis Jr. and Manny Machado stolethe majority of the headlines for the Padres offensive, and rookie Jake Cronenworth got his fair share of attention as one of the league’s most-exciting rookies.

But one player who consistently delivered over and over again was outfielder Wil Myers.

In 55 games, Myers recorded 57 hits, 34 runs scored, 40 RBIs and 15 home runs, good for third on the team. In this abbreviated season, Myers’...

Should the Padres bring back Mitch Moreland in 2021?

Kyle Terada-USA TODAY Sports

Veteran experience or more money for the future?

Earlier this year, the Padres made a flurry of moves prior to the trade deadline. One of those moves was sending minor leaguers Hudson Potts and Jeisson Rosario to the Red Sox for Mitch Moreland. San Diego acquired a veteran presence to help them on their way to fighting for a World Series pennant.

The Padres didn’t get there, but there’s still plenty of optimism heading into the 2021 season. One of the...
