PADRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

WATCH: All nine Padres score in one inning against Cubs

The San Diego Padres and their usually inept offense managed to do something truly remarkable Thursday night during a 13-3 win over the Chicago Cubs. The Friars scored nine runs in the top of the sixth inning. What’s more, every Padre in the lineup scored a run in that inning. The sixth inning was crazy, as the Padres sent 15 men to the plate in what was their biggest inning...

Its vast landscape dotted with legendary figures, much the same way Middle Earth was dotted with large walking, talking tree men and Middle America is dotted with Sonics. In the course of this great game there have been figures that stand out amongst the rest: John: Evers, McGraw, Mize, Bench Joe: Morgan, McGinty, Tinker,Dimaggio, Cronin,...

SD sets price high for Kennedy; could still keep him and/or Benoit

The Padres have sent word to some teams that they would need to be overwhelmed to trade Ian Kennedy, sources said. Or at least that's the message being received. That isn't to say Kennedy won't be dealt, of course. But the indication seems to be that the Padres aren't anxious to trade the veteran right-hander. San Diego already has made two big trades, including...

Outfielder-turned-pitcher Jeff Francoeur was reportedly called up by the San Diego Padres on Tuesday, and while that’s great news for his career, that unfortunately means the end of his minor-league teammates pranking him.

WATCH: Jeff Francoeur again victimized by brilliant prank

Back in April, the El Paso Chihuahuas pranked teammate Jeff Francoeur, convincing him that a teammate was deaf. In honor of Francoeur’s promotion to the major league today, Cody Decker of the Chihuahuas released another prank video, in which the team locks Francoeur in the bathroom. I won’t spoil the conclusion, but it’s pretty fantastic. Poor Jeff. Hopefully the Padres let...

Chase Headley Trade: Yankees Wise To Buy Very Low In Deal With Padres

The San Diego Padres tried to ride a heater to the Penthouse Suite. In the end, they’re walking away from the table with a couple of uninspiring vouchers to the buffet. The Padres traded third baseman Chase Headley to the New York Yankees on Tuesday in exchange for infielder Yangervis Solarte and minor league pitcher Rafael De Paula. It’s a lackluster haul for the Padres, who...

One’s Man’s Trash: Benoit a Trois

Joaquin Benoit (+23%) was the most added player this week after Huston Street was traded to the Angels. Benoit was scooped up by those looking for saves obviously, but he's a decent pitcher all around. Can he be trusted going forward? The big question isn't whether we should pick up Benoit. That's a no-brainer in the short term. No, the big question is will he actually...

MLB, Fox too busy kissing Jeter’s ass to remember Tony Gwynn

The Fox broadcast of the 2014 All-Star game will go down in history as a fond farewell to Yankees shortstop Derek Jeter, who as well all know very well, is retiring after this season. Jeter was mentioned a whole lot, but what was missing was any mention of a certain fella by the name of Tony Gwynn - you know, one of the best hitters to play the game and a 15-time All-Star, who died...
