    It’s not dark yet for the Brewers, but it’s getting there. It’s absolutely pitch black for the A’s, though.

  8. 17-year-old Julio Urias is starting for the Dodgers this afternoon

    Interesting news out of Dodgers camp, as 17-year-old Julio Urias is starting this afternoon’s Cactus League game against the Padres. Just to put things into perspective, he was born in August of 1996, less than two months after Tommy Lasorda managed his final game in Dodger Blue. Feeling old yet? Urias, a native of Mexico,…

  9. Cameron Maybin will not have surgery on ruptured biceps tendon

    Cameron Maybin Getty

    It was originally thought that Padres outfielder Cameron Maybin would be lost for 2-3 months after he suffered a torn left biceps tendon while making a diving catch Sunday, but there’s a chance he could be back sooner. According to Corey Brock of MLB.com, Padres general manager Josh Byrnes said that Maybin opted against surgery…

  10. Padres lose center fielder Cameron Maybin for 2-3 months

    Mar 3, 2014, 3:35 PM EDT

    Cameron Maybin

    The Padres’ sleeper status in the NL West has already taken a hit: center fielder Cameron Maybin will miss 2-3 months with a ruptured biceps tendon he suffered making a diving catch in Sunday’s game. The injury comes after Maybin was limited to 14 games last season with wrist and knee injuries. So, the Padres…

  11. Padres could trade from rotation depth to acquire a lefty bat or lefty reliever

    Nov 30, 2013, 6:05 PM EDT

    Eric Stults

    With an abundance of arms at the back end of the starting rotation, the Padres could make a deal to acquire a left-handed hitter and/or a left-handed reliever, suggests Bill Center of U-T San Diego. Center writes that Burch Smith, Robbie Erlin, or Eric Stults could be expendable. Smith and Erlin got their first taste…

  12. Will Venable agrees to two-year deal with Padres

    Sep 3, 2013, 12:48 PM EDT

    Will Venable

    Will Venable was already under team control through 2015, but Corey Brock of MLB.com reports the Padres have signed the outfielder to a two-year, $8.5 million deal that buys out his final two seasons of arbitration eligibility. Venable didn’t debut until age 25 and didn’t become a regular until age 27, so he’s old for…

    Brandon Moss

    Athletics 14, Tigers 4: We had this game on for a bit, got bored and decided to watch some random stuff we had recorded. When the show ended we went back to the game to see the A’s up 14-1. Allison let’s out a big “oh for f***’s sake!” and quickly turns on the “Awesom-O”…

    Yankees 9, Red Sox 6: All of the fireworks. All of the intrigue. All of the A-Rod. But this game really came down to the bullpens. The Yankees’ was fresh and effective, the Red Sox’ wasn’t. Our more thorough write-up can be read here. For now the Red Sox probably need to think less about…

    Baltimore Orioles v Arizona Diamondbacks

    Diamondbacks 4, Orioles 3: Paul Goldschmidt homered to tie it in the ninth, homered to win it in the 11th. It’s perhaps too late for this, but memo to Buck Showalter: maybe don’t pitch to Paul Goldschmidt. Two walkoff wins in a row for the Dbacks. Their ninth walkoff win of the year. Yankees 14,…

    St Louis Cardinals v Pittsburgh Pirates - Game Two

    Pirates 2, Cardinals 1; Pirates 6, Cardinals 0: First. Place. Pirates. And the best record in baseball. A walkoff in the opener and a beatdown in the nightcap. Six straight losses by the reeling Cardinals, who lost Yadier Molina to the DL on top of it all. And maybe — just maybe — the end…

    Bryce Harper

    Nationals 9, Pirates 7: This could have been an awful, awful defeat, what with the Nats bullpen once again pooping all over itself. At least I’m assuming it would have been a defeat. The game was tied entering the bottom of the ninth. Thanks to Bryce Harper‘s walkoff homer, however, we don’t know how extras…

  18. Will Venable’s fantastic catch saves the game for the Padres

    Screen Shot 2013-06-18 at 8.10.42 AM

    Padres’ center fielder Will Venable has an entry for catch of the year. Maybe catch of the past couple of years. He saved the game in the bottom of the 12th inning in the wee hours this morning, robbing Juan Perez of what would have been a walkoff hit and pushed the game into the…

  19. Padres call up Jaff Decker to replace Cameron Maybin

    Jun 12, 2013, 2:14 PM EDT

    San Diego Padres Photo Day

    Cameron Maybin is out for 6-10 weeks with a torn knee ligament and in his absence the Padres have called up 23-year-old Jaff Decker from Triple-A for outfield reinforcements. Decker is a former first-round pick and was once considered a top prospect, but his stock has slipped as he’s struggled to hit for a decent…

  20. Cameron Maybin out two months with torn knee ligament

    Jun 12, 2013, 11:51 AM EDT

    Cameron Maybin

    It’s been less than a week since Cameron Maybin returned from a wrist injury that cost him 45 games, but now the Padres center fielder is facing another lengthy injury absence. Maybin hurt his right knee diving for a ball in the outfield Sunday and the Padres announced that he’s been diagnosed with a torn…

    White Sox 10, Blue Jays 6: “The fog comes on little cat feet. It sits looking over harbor and city on silent haunches and then moves on.” Carl Sandburg said that about fog. “It was worse than when it rains. With the lights, it made it really really bright. It was weird.” Adam Dunn said that about fog. Which may…

  22. Padres activate Cameron Maybin, put Yonder Alonso on DL

    Cameron Maybin Getty

    UPDATE: Change of plans. Yonder Alonso‘s hand injury hasn’t gotten any better, so the Padres announced that they’re placing him on the DL to make room for Maybin and Blanks will stick around. ========== San Diego center fielder Cameron Maybin is off the disabled list after missing nearly two months with a wrist injury and…

    Chicago White Sox v Chicago Cubs

    Players who hit multiple home runs in a game are the new inefficiency. Teams should definitely stock up on those guys while they’re undervalued. Cubs 9, White Sox 3: Backup catcher Dioner Navarro smacked three homers — a solo, a two-run and a three-run jack — to pace the Cubbies. A Cubbies team who happen…

  24. Alex Cobb had an interesting third inning tonight

    Alex Cobb

    The Rays are playing host to the San Diego Padres in an inter-league three-game series this weekend, leading off with an Alex Cobb/Edinson Volquez starting pitching match-up tonight. After allowing two runs in the first on solo home runs by Will Venable and Carlos Quentin, Cobb had an interesting third inning. Venable struck out to…

    New York Mets starting pitcher Matt Harvey pitches against the Chicago White Sox during the fourth inning of their MLB Inter League baseball game at CitiField in New York

    Mets 1, White Sox 0: For as good a pitcher as Matt Harvey is, something is clearly wrong with him given that he did not get the win in this game. The object of the game is to win it, Matt. You clearly lack The Will to Win, as I’m sure Hawk Harrelson mentioned during…
