Kemp, Alonso, Wallace homer in Padres' 3-1 win over Marlins

SAN DIEGO (AP) -- After the Padres had given Andrew Cashner the lead, he wasn't about to come out of the game. When interim manager Pat Murphy paid a visit to the mound after a leadoff triple in the seventh, Cashner and his teammates told Murphy the game belonged to the right-hander.

Justin Upton is on the market. Who wants him?

Seeing as the San Diego Padres have failed to meet expectations in 2015, their status as sellers at the trade deadline comes as no surprise. They added several key free agents last winter and none of them seemed to mesh. Thus, the team has a lot of valuable assets to offer a team in contention. Of those assets, outfielder Justin Upton is the most intriguing. Now in his 9th season...

Padres not sellers quite yet but acknowledge 'critical' upcoming stretch

Despite reports to the contrary, the 44-52 San Diego Padres insist that they have not yet committed to being sellers while the trade window is open. Although the team is 10 ½ games back in the NL West after a loss on Thursday, executive chairman Ron Fowler told reporters following the game that reports that the Padres are sellers are premature. "We know who is ahead of us and what...

Bear or Bull: Is Matt Kemp Finished?

Professionally speaking, 2015 has not been a good year for Matt Kemp. Actually, Kemp's woes might have started last December when his former team, the Los Angeles Dodgers, agreed to trade him to division rival and current team, the San Diego Padres. Is there a bigger slap in the face in professional sports than when a team decides to move a player within it's own division? The Dodgers...

Should the Padres just blow the whole thing up?

No team made more noise this past offseason than the San Diego Padres, engaging in seemingly endless roster turnover in hopes of putting a contending team on the field. It was either going to be a spectacular success or a spectacular failure; either way, it’d be spectacular. Things haven’t gone exactly as general manager A.J. Preller planned. The Padres are putrid on offense...

Quick Observations on Austin Hedges’ Defense

Austin Hedges‘ rookie season has been frustrating at times, as he’s made just 15 starts since his May 4th call-up. And when he has been given a shot, he’s hit like a poor man’s Mario Mendoza. The 22-year-old currently owns a .154/.164/.288 major league slash line, which isn’t all that surprisingly given the sporadic playing time, the sample size (it’s only 57 plate appearances...

The San Diego Padres sit at 42-49 on the 2015 season, putting them in fourth place, 9.5 games back from the National League West leading Los Angeles Dodgers (51-39). The Padres have recovered from a six-game losing streak to win their last three. A small sign that they have what it takes to turn the season around.
