Friars Should Take Run At Cuban FA OF Tomas

I think I speak for all Padres fans when I say I want the club to pursue an acquisition for a legitimate big bat this winter. Not an injury-prone, defensive liability entering the decline phase of what has been a decent, but hardly great, career (Carlos Quentin).

End of season post-mortem: San Diego Padres

The Padres were viewed as a sleeper contender coming into the 2014 season. They probably weren’t capable of hanging with the Dodgers and Giants (or maybe even the Diamondbacks) in the NL West, but if either of the favorites faltered and the Padres’ roster stayed healthy throughout the season, there was a chance that meaningful baseball could be played in San Diego during September...
