Unpacking The Wil Myers Three-Team Trade

In a three-team trade that ended up bigger and more surprising than nearly anyone expected, the Washington Nationals (up until this point fairly quiet in the postseason) took on the role of broker and reached agreement with the San Diego Padres and Tampa Bay Rays in a complicated, mighty 11-man swap. ESPN’s Keith Law described the Nats’ actions as being like “bandits”...

Matt Kemp, Right Now, Is Still A Dodger

Real talk: I’m sick of talking about Matt Kemp. I don’t have anything new to say about Matt Kemp. I just want this deal to finally get done so we can all get on with our lives. I want to talk about other things. I want to run Brim’s outstanding look at Chris Hatcher, a guy you’re going to love. I want to really consider the idea of Jimmy Rollins wearing blue. And yet: We...

Padres could deal outfielder Seth Smith

getty images The Padres could trade outfielder Seth Smith. ESPN’s Jerry Crasnick reports he’s head Smith’s name often in trade talks. It’s worth nothing that any trade involving Smith will probably have to wait until the Padres figure out whether or not they will complete the Matt Kemp trade with the Dodgers. If the Kemp trade does go though, as well as the one for Wil...

Padres Acquire Myers, Hanigan in 11-Player Deal

There once was a time when the San Diego Padres spoke of going after “the big bat” and “quietly building from within” to achieve some caliber and talent. There was a time when the Padres spoke loudly but carried a soft stick, leaving the “hot stove” to simmer while the Friar Faithful waited with bated breath for good news that would never come. Such times, apparently...

The Padres, Buzz, and Contention

Neither Matt Kemp nor Wil Myers have yet been officially traded. Yet it feels like those should happen any moment now, if not while I’m in the process of writing this post, and the end result will be that the Padres will have a pair of new corner outfielders. Kemp is older and Myers is […]

Report: Padres, Rays talking Wil Myers trade

The San Diego Padres have made a significant splash this winter in acquiring Matt Kemp from the Dodgers, and they’ve sniffed around some other bats (Yasmany Tomas, Justin Upton, Pablo Sandova) as well. But San Diego’s latest potential venture in the trade market is one that I don’t think anyone saw coming – the team is reportedly discussing a blockbuster trade with the Tampa...

Lost in Translation: How Kwang-hyun Kim Got Away

(You are entering a hot take free zone.) The last time we discussed Korean pitcher Kwang-hyun Kim, we were fumbling through a translation from a Korean sports website, Naver Sports, about how the Padres had won the posting fee for Kim with a $2 million bid. It seemed likely that the Padres and Kim, with 30 days to strike a deal, would agree to a contract, making Kim an intriguing...

Rosenthal: Padres eyeing another megadeal . . . but is that enough?

They’re also looking at other hitters, but one rival executive says the Pads are “all over” Upton, confirming a report by Mark Bowman of Which raises a few questions. Actually, more than a few. What would the Padres be willing to give up for one year of Upton at $14.5 million? The Braves, according...

Player Profile #189: Ian Kennedy | SP | SD

There were few bright spots for the last place San Diego Padres last season, but it’s indisputable that Ian Kennedy was one. Over the course of his 2014 campaign, Kennedy set career bests in many categories and enjoyed his second-best ERA and WHIP surpassed only by his stellar 2011. Unlike the memorable 2011 season, however, Kennedy did not fare well in BABIP or LOB%, so there’s...

So Everth Cabrera Is Available Now

There weren’t really a ton of interesting names to hit free agency after the non-tender deadline earlier this week, and that makes sense. After all, players interesting enough to want to investigate don’t usually get non-tendered. One exception, at least judging by the fact that people are asking about him, is former San Diego shortstop Everth Cabrera. He’s a shortstop. The...

Quick, name a team that has been heavily involved in the bidding for two of the biggest free agent hitters to sign this offseason.
