PADRES RUMORS & GOSSIP

Yasmani Grandal (C / 1B, SD) – Waiver Wire Pickups

BALLER MOVE: Add in NL-Only Leagues, Mixed Leagues with Two Catcher Spots ANALYSIS: After a promising rookie campaign in 2012 in which he belted eight home runs and posted a stellar .394 OBP over 192 at-bats, the once-highly-touted prospect Yasmani Grandal has struggled, not only at the plate, but to stay in baseball, as well.

“Nothing Night” promotion provides great atmosphere

Most people, me included, love anything that is free. So when I heard that the Lake Elsinore Storm (High A Affiliate, San Diego Padres) was having a “Nothing Night Promotion” I had to check it out. “Nothing Night” means that no ticket is required, sit wherever you like, bring your own food and drinks (no alcohol), no mascots, no announcers, no music, just pure simple baseball...

Why the Padres Should Have Kept Chase Headley

Last week we (somewhat) briefly discussed the surprisingly anticlimactic end of the Chase Headley saga in San Diego, the unexciting return brought back from the New York Yankees for his services, and the fact that, inexplicably, the Padres had to send $1 million to the Bronx to complete the deal. The Headley contract situation went about as badly as it could have for the Padres ...

While You Were (Day) Drinking 2014 Game 104 (SD at ATL)

Sometimes things get a little fuzzy after spending an afternoon in the pub.  So here’s a friendly reminder of what you might have missed while you were drinking. The Padres (46-58) lost 8-3 to the Atlanta Braves (57-48) yesterday at Turner Field.  Eric Stults (3-13, 5.22) had a horrible third inning, giving up six earned runs, but shutout the Braves the two innings before and...

Former Outfielder Jason Lane to Make Starting Pitching Debut on Monday

If the name Jason Lane rings a bell, that’s because it probably should. The former Houston Astros outfielder will make his first MLB start as a pitcher for the San Diego Padres on Monday. Lane will take the bump against the Miami Marlins more than 10 years removed from hitting a solo home run against the Atlanta Braves in the 2004 NL Division Series.  After getting off to a...

Meet the man behind the epic pranks on Jeff Francoeur

Jeff Francoeur's foray back into the minor leagues has produced two particularly hilarious moments this season. The first, when his El Paso Chihuahuas teammates convinced him that teammate Jorge Reyes was deaf (he's not) and the second, when he dared to use the coaches bathroom and his teammates retaliated by forcing him to find another way out of the room (he chose the ceiling...

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...

Francoeur’s call-up to the Majors became necessary following the suspension of outfielder Cameron Maybin who violated MLB’s drug use policy by testing positive for amphetamines. Maybin will be serving a...

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...

After the 2012 season, the Padres were faced a with a tough decision: trade burgeoning star Chase Headley at the peak of his value or try and keep him and re-sign him. It would seem that the Padres chose secret option C. Today, San Diego finally pulled the trigger on that Headley trade, sending him to the Yankees, who have coveted Headley for years.
