What are you even supposed to do with one Chris Denorfia bobblehead, let alone 600 of them? That’s the dilemma a group of San Diego housemates faced when they went outside one morning and found 600 Chris Denorfia bobbleheads dumped in the middle of their street. Not knowing what else to do, they called the cops, who…
With the MLB trade deadline tomorrow, fans are now on Early Exit Watch. Any player who leaves a game early will be considered to be involved in a trade, until proven otherwise. (Yesterday, the opposite happened.) When Justin Upton and Matt Kemp prematurely left Wednesday’s Padres game, the buzz started, but interim…
Tuesday night’s Giants-Padres game generated a nice baseball beef between the divisional rivals. On a chart of cooking steak, it’d probably register at a “medium.” The tiff did involve a thrown piece of gum, however, so that’s fun.
Damn, Justin Upton, what did Andrew McCutchen ever do to you? McCutchen had to think this go-ahead homer was long gone but Upton, recently named the Padres’ lone representative to the All-Star game, got way up above the wall to take it away. McCutchen got the last laugh, however, as his Pirates scored two more runs to…
Padres third baseman Will Middlebrooks left today’s game against the Diamondbacks in the seventh inning after his attempt to field a Cliff Pennington pop foul was interrupted by a abandoned bat in the on-deck circle.
Umpire and weirdo Jordan Baker defused a brewing Padres-Braves brawl with his best attempt at a double underhook throw on San Diego’s Matt Kemp, who was attempting to go after Julio Teheran following a hit by pitch in the first inning today in Atlanta.
Last night the Padres' Cory Spangenberg hit a common foul chopper that turned out to be not so common: it caught an edge in foul territory and somehow managed to roll back into fair territory for an infield hit. It left announcer Dick Enberg delighted:
If there’s one thing you can always count on a baseball player in a high-stress situation to be, it’s a sensitive weenie. Allow me to direct your attention to this moment, from yesterday’s game between the Giants and Padres.
The Atlanta Braves have traded closer Craig Kimbrel and outfielder Melvin Upton Jr. to the San Diego Padres, as first reported by FanGraphs’ Kiley McDaniel.
The Nationals released Heath Bell Monday, and today, the 37-year-old reliever said he would retire. Watch him sprint to the mound in the 2011 All-Star Game.
Everyone knows prospect Trea Turner is the Padres' "player to be named later" who is heading to the Nationals, but the rules say he can't officially be traded until June. It's a weird spring training for him.
James Shields and the Padres have reportedly agreed on a four-year deal, and it looks like it'll be the largest contract San Diego has ever handed out. Shields joins a new-look Padres team that includes Justin Upton, Wil Myers, Will Middlebrooks, Matt Kemp, and Derek Norris.
Baseball is weird, and its weirdness has claimed another victim. This time, it's Nationals, er, Padres shortstop Trea Turner. Turner was traded from San Diego to Washington in the three-team, 11-player Wil Myers trade. But Turner can't join the Nats until mid-June.
The San Diego Padres continue to be very committed to making baseball fans everywhere mutter, "The shit is going on with the Padres?" on a daily basis. Today, the team traded a package of young players to the Braves for Justin "The Good Upton" Upton.
The Padres were all set to add two big new pieces to their outfield with Wil Myers and Matt Kemp both coming in via semi-blockbuster trades, but the Kemp deal has hit a last-minute snag, thanks to the 30-year-old's arthritic hips.
The Dodgers pulled off a blooper for the ages tonight against the Padres. Let's go over it slowly and appreciate how terrible it was.
This is so stupid. It's tagged "This Is So Stupid," but you should be informed twice.
Here we have a brief moment from this afternoon's Padres-Braves game and, god damn, is it ever the cutest. Dad and son take in an afternoon ballgame when all of sudden, a foul ball comes their way. Triumphant dad displays the ball he has just snagged, his son echoes that triumph for exactly one second, and then hugs…
