Wil Myers hits for the second cycle in San Diego Padres history

There isn’t going to be much to like about the 2017 San Diego Padres, but Wil Myers is certainly something to like. After a being a highly regarded prospect — with Tampa Bay — and having a couple of disappointing seasons, Myers hit 28 homers and was worth 3.8 WAR (per FanGraphs) in 2016 for the Padres. Myers is off to another tremendous start this season, with three homers...

Clayton Richard, the Fascinating Find

On opening day, the Padres lost to the Dodgers by 11 runs, and the score makes the game seem closer than it was. It was more or less how the game was expected to go, and half the postgame stories revolved around the same narrative: It’s going to be a long season for San Diego. And, you know what, it probably will be a long season for San Diego. But after game number two, the Padres...

Christian Bethancourt and Two-Way Players of the Past, Future

Christian Bethancourt made the Padres! This is exciting, because he’s making the team as a catcher and a reliever at the same time. His existence challenges norms in a sport that’s known for the specialized roles of its participants. That said, we’ll have to see if he’s more Brooks Kieschnick or more Kenley Jansen eventually. Because hitter-slash-pitcher Kieschnick was nearly...

Can the Padres' Christian Bethancourt really succeed at pitcher and catcher?

In Little League, it's extremely common for the best player on the team to be the ace of the pitching staff while also excelling in the field when he's not on the mound. That typically ends as players get older, particularly once they move on from high school ball and head to college or turn pro.Of course, there are always the Micah Owings of the world, MLB pitchers who find their...
