Demoting Hahn was Padres' best move

The only capacity in which Jesse Hahn has ever taken the mound for the Padres is as a starting pitcher. He still managed to get the save on Tuesday. This wasn't Hahn hurling ninth-inning breaking balls to save the Padres, though. This was very much the Padres saving him. Before San Diego stepped onto the field for Game 1 of a three-game series vs. the Dodgers Tuesday, Hahn...

Na Na Na Na, Na Na Na Na, Hey Hey Hey, Good Bye

There’s about a month and a half remaining in the 2014 Padres’ season.  Barring a miracle of biblical proportions, the Friars will not be playing in the postseason.  Sorry, folks.  It has to be said.  But I think you all know that.  Well, most of you do anyway. New GM A.J. Preller has some interesting decisions to make on players in the offseason.  Do the Padres stand...

WATCH: Padres make catches in stands on back-to-back plays

The San Diego Padres have had a largely miserable season. But things are looking up in the second half, as the Friars currently have one of baseball’s best winning percentages since the All-Star break.

What To Expect When You’re Expecting Rymer Liriano

Rymer Liriano was pulled from his game in AAA El Paso on Sunday after only 2 at-bats. Apparently no one was on #HugWatch, because it took several hours for it to be announced that no, Liriano had not left the game with an injury, he was getting called up to the big leagues and will join the Padres in San Diego today.
